COURSE
OVERVIEW

A convenient power market briefing designed to provide clear, independent and business-focused guidance on market opportunity and risk to those deploying, investing in or regulating power generation projects or other electricity sector infrastructure.

This four-part online training will review how the business environment for electricity generation, distribution and sale is changing; along with what current trends and disruptive technologies tell us about where it is heading. Attendees will gain an excellent overview of where the key risks exist for incumbents in the electricity value chain, and where the key opportunities arise for those willing and able to innovate and adapt. Each session will focus in particular on the impact that renewable power generation and other disruptive technologies are having on today’s power systems.

Among the key topics discussed are power mix transition, electricity pricing, system flexibility requirements, grid service market opportunities, distributed energy, energy storage, aggregation and electrification (of transport and heat).
