Hospitals, data centres and industries. In Sweden we have been used to high delivery reliability in our power grid for a long time.
Now a transition is under way, where major production facilities in the form of nuclear power plants will be closed and replaced, primarily by wind power. This will affect delivery reliability – both in terms of the power balance and the quality of the electricity delivered.
At the seminar the term “delivery reliability” will be explored from different perspectives to understand the complexity of the system. A new report will also be presented at the seminar describing how delivery reliability is being handled in other countries.
Participants include Bo Normark, Chairman of Electricity Crossroads and Karin Byman, Project Manager for the project’s Delivery Reliability work group. Also at the seminar there will be a presentation of a report entitled “How is delivery reliability managed in other countries” by Andrea Badano of Sweco. Ulla Sandborgh from Svenska kraftnät and Kenneth Johansson, Ellevio, will discuss the challenges facing the Swedish power grid at the national and regional levels. Lina Palm, Uniper, will describe developments from an energy company’s perspective. Maria Sunér Fleming, Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, will highlight the value of delivery reliability from a user perspective. The panel debate participants will be Andreas Regnell, Vattenfall, Lennart Söder, KTH, Runar Brännlund, Umeå University and Magnus Thorstensson, Energiföretagen Sverige.
