CIGRE Netherlands-Women in Energy has the pleasure to invite you for the webinar Collaboration on energy transition across boundaries on the 13th of June from 8.00-11.30 BST.  Please note that the times on the agenda below are CET, one hour ahead of BST.

With the commitment to reduce CO2 emissions, we are confronted on a daily base with the challenges involved in transmitting and distributing renewable energy to our end users with a grid reliability percentage we are nowadays used to. New entrants appear in the world of power systems resulting in the necessity of new collaboration towards a jointly successful global energy transition. In this webinar Collaboration on energy transition across boundaries we will focus on the status, challenges and collaborations needed between the “old and new power system world” from a renewable energy production and system integration perspective of six different countries.
