Conference in Barcelona "Leading Practices in RES Integration: A Global Perspective"

The conference aims to showcase best practices of RES integration from different regions of the world. We will shine a spotlight on many different RES integration practices: from the Mediterranean, across Europe and beyond.

We are convinced that sharing best practices is the best way to foster the integration of renewables in a more innovative and sustainable way. At this conference, we will shine a spotlight on RES integration practices from around the world. 

Part of this will be to take a closer look at a number of leading practices created in the region hosting our event: the Mediterranean has seen ground-breaking shares of renewable energy sources managed safely despite the relative isolation of its electric systems. Resource potential and geographical constraints have no doubt fostered the region’s innovative ability. These conditions can inspire and support other regions at a time when ambitious plans are necessary to meet our climate and energy targets.

During 2 days in Barcelona, we will bring challenges, solutions and open questions related to RES integration to the stage. The many layers this will comprise include:

  • Regulation
  • Technical innovation
  • Societal engagement
  • Offshore grid development
