The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult is holding a workshop together with Narec Distributed Energy on the topic of connecting renewable energy and battery technologies to the electricity grid.

The Grid Emulation System (eGrid): Grid Connection workshop will take place on 20 September at ORE Catapult’s testing facilities in Blyth, UK, and is open to businesses, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), sole traders and researchers operating in the fields of renewables, smart grids and storage.

According to Narec, the aim of the event is to help delegates understand and avoid problems related to connecting different systems to the grid. The topics to be covered include grid codes, the coming changes in 2019, common issues and the best ways to work with Distribution Network Operators.

The attendees are free to bring questions based on problems they are experiencing within their own schemes.

“We’re proud to be offering this workshop alongside ORE Catapult. We know about the common issues that can arise when trying to connect to the grid and are we always looking to share our expertise with businesses working in the industry,” said Bryan Dixon, Senior Electrical Design Engineer at Narec.

“The range of industry experts and academia speaking at the event will provide important information to the companies attending. The question and answer section of the event will be especially beneficial as it will allow us to really go into detail about the issues most businesses face when it comes to grid connection. I would recommend that people attending come prepared with questions that they would like addressed to really make the most of this free session.”

The workshop is being organized as part of the eGrid project, a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) project that allowed ORE Catapult to install one of the world’s most advanced Grid Emulation System at its Blyth center. Registration and attendance are free.
