Workshop | eXtremOS | Extreme developments and the value of flexibility



In most cases, discussions on the future shape of the energy system are focused on the possible developments. However, this does not include discussions on such scenarios, which are extreme in nature and can be destructive for the market and the system. In this context, it is the ability of the system to react quickly to these events, i.e. its flexibility, that determines its stability. The essence of flexibility will be discussed by the participants of the international eXtremOS workshop on 17 May 2019 in Warsaw.

The aim of the workshop is to address any possible risks to the energy system that may arise in interconnected energy markets. The project is to end with the formulation of European recommendations for increasing the flexibility of the system, which will strengthen the security of electricity supply.

The workshop seeks to provide an expert forum f to discuss technological, regulatory and social “extreme developments” in the energy system, with a focus on Poland as well as other countries like Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia. 

The workshop, led according to chatham house rule, will be attended by 20 experts from Hungary, Slovakia and Poland representing public administration, business, scientific institutions and NGOs. The list of participants has been completed. 

The workshop is organized by Agora Energiewende and part of the eXtremOS (XOS) project that is led by FfE (Forschungsstelle für Energiewirtschaft e.V.).
