Sustainable Energy

Does energy efficiency come at the cost of lower reliability? Or does reliability reduce energy efficiency?

Considering efficiency and security of power as a tradeoff may be the wrong perspective. The need for reliability can be driven by safety concerns (e.g. airport traffic control), social considerations (e.g. healthcare facilities) or an economic rationale (e.g. internet data centres). Once the need for reliability is established, it just becomes another energy service, or an aspect of an energy service that needs to be provided efficiently.

Typical subjects in this theme are:

  • efficiency of a secure power infrastructure
  • dip-resilience of inverter drives
  • extra losses and risks due to harmonics
  • efficiency of energy storage

Practical information

The webinar takes place on Friday, February 15 at 12h30 – 13h30 GMT+1 (Brussels).

The event will use the Adobe Connect webconferencing system that allows you to join the event at the single click of a button.
