AEMO hosts ESIG Down Under

3 min

This year, AEMO has partnered with the Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG) to host ESIG Down Under, a free online event series featuring nine webinars throughout the month of September.

ESIG are an international, non-profit educational association that focuses on providing resources and education to engineers, researchers, technologists and policymakers on evolving electricity and integrated energy systems.

Their core purpose is to educate the global energy sector and the public about the ongoing transformation of energy systems and energy-related technologies, and to support progress that is economic, reliable, sustainable, thoughtful and collaborative.

ESIG Down Under was originally intended as an in-person event to be held in Melbourne back in April but, due to the global pandemic, the decision was made to transform the event into a dynamic series of online webinars. This also provided the opportunity to trial a fully online conference of this calibre.

These nine webinars will bring together key international leaders across the industry (from Asia, USA and Europe) to share insights into the global energy sector’s transformation, with a special focus on the dissolution of traditional interfaces in Australia.

AEMO, as a world leading power system operator, is successfully managing the transition of the National Electricity Market (NEM) to a more decentralised, sustainable low carbon future and this conference will provide international stakeholders and attendees with a deeper understanding of this process.

Three key streams have been selected that illustrate the state of flux that power systems are undergoing globally, and the breaking down of traditional boundaries that have existed in the power system.

These are:

·         Physics-Market Interface

·         Customer-Grid Interface

·         Transmission-Distribution Interface

For each key stream, there will be one Plenary session on the topic and two deep dives.

All interested parties are welcome to attend any of the free webinars, please select the webinar/s of interest to you from this page and simply follow the links to register.
