SET-Nav Newsletter: Issue July 2017

Welcome to SET-Nav

SET-Nav - Navigating the Roadmap for Clean, Secure and Efficient Energy Innovation was initiated in April 2016 and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

SET-Nav supports strategic decision making in Europe's energy sector, enhancing innovation towards a clean, secure and efficient energy system.

Scheduled: Modelling workshop

7 September 2017, Vienna, Austria

An important pillar of the SET-Nav is integration and expansion of existing energy (system) models. The specific topic of this workshop is relevant for extending existing load profiles and demand side flexibility interfaces between demand and supply models.
The topic is “Aggregating load profiles from the power sector models towards use in large-scale energy-system and integrated assessment models”, to better account for the stochastic nature of variable renewable energy sources and the challenges to large-scale models by the different timescales relevant for distinct aspects of the energy system.

Scheduled: SET-Nav Topical Workshop

28 September 2017, Brussels, Belgium

The third SET-Nav stakeholder event in Brussels will be held on Thursday 28 September 2017, on 9.30 am. The event will be organised by CEPS and will discuss the Europe’s gas infrastructure needs towards 2050. The main focus will be on the prioritization of Projects of Common Interest, with a special insight on their vulnerability to producers’ pricing strategy.

Stay tuned here.

Discussion paper: Engineering Resilience in Critical Infrastructures

The Discussion paper: Engineering Resilience in Critical Infrastructures is now available online. The paper was prepared for the SET-Nav Modelling Workshop “Modelling of Risk & Uncertainty in Energy Systems” March 29, 2017 at ETH Zurich.

This work shortly elaborates on the definition of resilience, the need for resilience in critical interdependent infrastructures, and on resilience quantification. An integrated metric for measuring resilience is discussed and strategies to build resilience in critical infrastructures are reviewed, particularly focusing on technical aspects.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No 691843 (SET-Nav)
