Digitalised and responsive PV: The driver of Grid and Market evolution (Annual Conference 2024)

Digitalisation and cybersecurity have gained much prominence in the last few years. In addition, the war in Ukraine has increased the focus on energy security, and the resulting energy crisis has accelerated the electrification of heating and cooling and the deployment of PV for self-consumption in industries. Finally, the impact of climate change on the reliability of the power system was absent from the discussions then and is now a current concern (from the damage to grid infrastructure due to extreme weather events to the reduced availability of nuclear power generation in heatwaves and droughts).
