Symposium on Risks in Integrated Energy Systems

March 6, 2018 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The aim of this half-day symposium is to bring academia and industry together and discuss theoretical and practical issues of risks and finance in integrated energy systems.

Energy system integration (ESI) is the process of coordinating the operation and planning of energy systems across multiple pathways and geographical scales in order to deliver reliable, cost effective energy services with less impact on the environment. With the ongoing energy transition questions arise about what types of risks and uncertainties do market participants of integrated energy systems face and how can they manage them. These risks include price dynamics in fuel and carbon markets, declining costs of competing technologies, and uncertainties related to consumer demand and energy policy.

Location: The Economic and Social Research Institute, Whitaker Square, Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2
