Transitioning from national to regional grids
Can our grids cope with the growing demand for new technology solutions? In this latest podcast episode, DNV GL talks to Jeroen Scheer, Chief Technical Officer of Alliander, about the impact of new solutions and renewables on the grid, and how DSOs are preparing to cope with this increasing demand.
In this informative episode, Jeroen gives his views on the main challenges faced in the energy transition from a Distribution System Operator’s perspective. He discusses the current transition from a grid managed at a national level, to one that is more regional; and the role of the TSOs and regulators. Jereon addresses questions on - how to ensure that the grid does not become overloaded due to increasing demand; how can a utility keep up with the growing requirements for installation of renewable solutions; and what is the effect that this is having on the engineering talent pool? Finally, Jereon shares his thoughts on the impact of the transition on retailers, and gives some insights into how they will evolve in the future.
