Technical and economic analysis of the European electricity system with 60% renewable energy sources

Share

 This seminar will present the impacts of the integration of a large share of variable renewable generation into the generation mix of the European interconnected electricity system. The analysis, which is based on the results of long-term studies performed by EDF R&D, aims at improving the current understanding of the technical and economic feasibility of a massive deployment of wind and PV across the European system.

Biography:

Dr Vera SILVA is currently the Director of the research program on Electricity systems and markets at EDF Research & Development. She has 18 years of experience in the power systems industry and for the last 11 years, she led several studies on the integration of renewables to the European system. Her recent activities include leading a successful European project proposal – EU SysFlex – concerning the development and demonstration of solutions for enhancing system flexibility for the integration of 50% RES in the pan-European systems. She was the project manager for the pan European study “technical and economic analysis of the European system with 60% RES and she is a member of the advisory board of the IEA System integration of renewables. Before joining EDF, she was a research assistant at the Imperial College London and at the University of Manchester and a lecturer at the electrical engineering department of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto. Vera Silva received a PhD degree in electrical engineering from Imperial College London and an MSc and Engineering degrees, both in electrical engineering, from the University of Porto, Portugal.
