Electricity System Transition for a Renewable-Powered Future 25th November

2019/11/15

Electricity System Transition for a Renewable-Powered Future

The installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) has expanded in Kyushu area, where the maximum instantaneous output of solar PV reached more than 90% of electricity demand in spring 2018 around noon. Solar PV and wind outputs have been partially curtailed to keep balance of supply and demand. What are the challenges for the further efficient use of renewable energy? How can we address them?

In this symposium, experts from Germany, Sweden and the United States will be invited to discuss national initiatives and future prospects for the realization of a future shaped by renewable energy. How to turn to a renewable-powered future will be explored through these discussions.
