15:30 – 16:30      Closing Session: Podium Discussion – Power Systems with 80% Renewables: Concerns, Fears and how to realize it

Session Chair: Adrian Timbus (ABB, Switzerland)

Topics addressed:

  • Discuss what are the current concerns and fears on increasing further the penetration of renewables and reach 80% share
  • Discuss challenges for each of the players involved in the market space
  • Understand the gaps and what the industry should focus on to enable such penetration ratio
  • How to remove road blockers (technological, regulatory, business wise)
