2018 CIRED Workshop, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana Centre

CIRED workshops on specific topics are organized every two years between CIRED main conferences. In 2018, the workshop will address "Microgrids and Local Energy Communities". 

Here are the key dates for this workshop:

  • December 15, 2017: Abstract submission
  • January 29, 2018: Notification of acceptance
  • March 23, 2018: Full paper submission
  • June 7-8, 2018: CIRED Workshop

Here are the key topics for the workshop:

  • Regulatory aspects
  • The roles and responsibilities of the different actors
  • Handling of actor interfaces
  • Business models for stimulating cost efficient implementation and utilization
  • Business cases for microgrids and local energy communities (from the point of view of system operators, aggregators and customers)
  • Impact on network architecture and system development of services offered by microgrids and local energy communities (e.g., increasing of hosting capacity, resiliency, flexibility, investment deferment)
  • Models and tools for including microgrids and local energy communities in development studies, including multi-energy hubs
  • Microgrids and local energy communities to provide security of supply beyond the parameters associated with the DSO
  • The coordinated control of many distributed sources with different technical characteristics and possible conflicting requirements
  • Ride-through capabilities, essential for the stable operation of microgrids, especially when in islanded mode of operation
  • Efficient load-sharing capabilities among power electronics interfaced distributed generators
  • Protection and safety issues
  • The design and dimensioning of storage and controllers able to face the requirements posed by the islanded operation and during transitions from interconnected to islanded mode.
  • Assessment of services offered by microgrids and local energy communities. (e.g., post fault services, resiliency increase, flexibility)
