Driven by national energy strategies, the falling installation cost of renewables and power-water production de-coupling, Middle Eastern countries are gradually transforming their fossil fuel-based power generation fleets into more sustainable and diversified energy supply portfolios. As the share of variable renewable energy increases in the energy mix, so does the necessity to include flexibility into the power system.
This webinar will provide an overview of the key factors that shape energy markets in the Gulf states and solutions that can enable higher penetration and seamless integration of renewable energy sources:
- Get an overview of the key global and local factors that influence the energy sector in the Gulf; analyse the recent impact of the low-oil-price on the region. What will differentiate a leading utility in the future from today’s energy companies in the Middle East?
- Understand the role of flexibility in high-renewable power systems, and consider the potential opportunities for energy storage through the different segments of generation, and transmission & distribution
- Listen to real-life case studies on energy solutions that help optimize power system dispatch while reducing the carbon footprint
