[News]A workshop of the University of Tokyo satellite will be held.

A workshop of the The Universtiy of Tokyo satellite "An expansion of the renewable energies and an innovation of the electric power systems based on the Paris Agreement”will be held at 13:00 on September 26th(Mon),2016.
Please see below for more information.

COI Workshop
"An expansion of the renewable energies and an innovation of the electric power systems based on the Paris Agreement”

For the Paris Agreement each country including Japan submitted the reduction plan of greenhouse gas.
For Japan the reduction targets were set not only for 2030 but also 2050 as an authorized plan for the global warming by the government.
According to the targets a drastic innovation is required for the electric power systems.
On the other hand the cost of the renewable energies such as PV has become lower drastically, which makes the percentage higher worldwide.
In Japan for the expansion of the renewable energy new technologies and perspectives are equired in terms of operation and control.
Also for the open electric power market,liberalization of the retail market and the separation of electrical power production from power distribution and transmission the system design of the ancillary services is urgently required.
Further a form of hydrogen could be suitable for storage of the energy or for the FCVs rather than output suppression when the renewable energies are largely used.

In the workshop the required technologies and expense allocation will be discussed by the related people for the power grid operation and control when the renewable energies are largely used under the liberalization of the market.
Also the leading edge knowledge for the production, storage and utilization of hydrogen will be shared.
