On September 29th, the IMDEA Energy Auditorium will host the workshop ‘Urban grids and microgrids’, a day in which the main challenges of the development of urban electricity grids and the decarbonization of railway networks, the opportunities that the integration of renewables brings to the energy markets and the development of technical solutions such as power electronics converters, storage systems and management algorithms will be discussed.

The workshop is aimed at grid operators, energy companies, technology companies in the renewable and power electronics sector, companies in the railway sector and researchers and students in the field of renewable integration.

The event is free of charge, but registration is required before September 26 by following this link.



The conference will start at 9 am and will be presented by Félix Marín, from IMDEA Energía. Francisco Javier Rodríguez, from the University of Alcalá (UAH), will then present the PROMINT-CM project.

Enrique García, from Iberdrola, will present the challenges in the development of urban electric grids and José Conrado, from ADIF, will do the same on the decarbonization of railway networks.

Enrique Doheijo, from Deloitte, will speak on the new opportunities brought by the integration of renewables into the energy markets.

A representative from Huawei, to be confirmed, will give a talk on power electronics converters for power grids, followed by Enrique Serrano from B5tec on the integration of batteries in power grids.

Milan Prodanovic, from IMDEA Energía, will dedicate his speech to the demonstration of real-time management algorithms. Prodanovic, together with Francisco Javier Rodriguez, from UAH, is expected to close the day.
