1 "THE UTILITIES OF THE FUTURE: THE NEW MARKET AND REGULATION MODELS FOR THE TECHNOLOGICAL TRANSITION AND DISTRIBUTED ENERGY RESOURCES INTEGRATION ON GROWING SCALE". Opening Panel of the Smart Grid World Summit, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 29 November 2017 Karin Widegren, Chair of ISGAN Executive Committee (International Smart Grid Action Network)

2 ISGAN in a nutshell International Smart Grid Action Network TCP (ISGAN) Strategic platform to support high-level government attention and action for the accelerated development and deployment of smarter, cleaner electricity grids around the world One of 13 initiatives of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) A Technology Collaboration Programme under the framework of the International Energy Agency (IEA) The CEM is the only multilateral forum dedicated exclusively to the advancement of clean energy technologies and related policies. ISGAN is the only global government-to-government forum on smart grids 2

3 Geography of ISGAN Contracting Parties: 25 European Commission Government of Belgium Danish Energy Agency Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH Swedish Energy Agency Tekes (Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation) Russian Energy Agency Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland Government of the Netherlands, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation Ministry of Science and Technology Department of High and New Technology Development and Industrialization Government of Canada U.S. Department of Energy Government of Mexico Union Fenosa Distribucion Government of France Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico (RSE S.p.A.) Government of Austria Swiss Federal Office of Energy Energy Market Authority, Singapore Government of India MOP, NSGM, POWER GRID, CPRI South African National Energy Development Institute New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) Government of Korea Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization 3

4 Activities of ISGAN 4

5 Vision and Mission Vision: The vision of ISGAN is the attainment of national, regional and global clean energy and climate goals supported by the integration of advanced technological, operational and analytical capabilities for electric power grids, including the smart management and coordination of the participants in the electricity system. Mission: The mission of the International Smart Grid Action Network is to provide a platform for the development and exchange of expertise and competence on smarter, cleaner electric power systems and to serve as an important channel for communication of related knowledge, trends, and lessons learned, and future plans in support of national, regional and global climate and clean energy objectives. 5

6 ISGAN s strengths No direct technology development or demonstration activities Focus on exchange and dissemination of information and perspectives Develop protocols and best practices, identify environmental issues and mitigation options A global benchmark and collaborative attitude among participating countries Indicate to emerging economies the technological alternatives available for their own development Activities in ISGAN build a global understanding of smart grid, address gaps in knowledge and tools, improve peer-to-peer exchange and recognize excellence 6

7

8 Priorities and Results Addressing Gaps and Barriers for smart grid Technology Development and Deployment - Examples from ISGAN s Activities Technology Knowledge Exchange Contribution to Technology Evolution Contribution to Market Development Contribution to Policy Insights 8

9 Technology Knowledge Exchange Increased need for integration of renewable resources Increased hosting capacity of the grid Decrease the need for curtailment Manage both large scale integration and distributed resources Increased network efficiency - reduction of network losses Network losses can be reduced using smart control of the grid, but this may also increase technical network losses New opportunities to optimize between capital and operational costs by deferring or avoiding network reinforcement Utilizing demand side flexibility DR-schemes Enable proper market functions to capture the full potential of demand side resources and customers active participation Knowledge about customer behavior and technologies to facilitate customers active participation

11 Smart grids integrate previously isolated systems in larger, more complex systems-of-systems. This increases the importance of grid sensing and control to manage and balance in real-time a growing diversity of generation and end-use assets. Effective lab testing methods, protocols, and practices are needed to validate performance and evaluate growing interdependencies before costly demonstrations and deployments proceed Lab testing also informs standards development Contribution to Technology evolution Annex 5 (SIRFN) example: As the number of rooftop PV inverters increases, so does the importance of their predictable response to grid operator signals. If one inverter fails to ride through a voltage disturbance as commanded, then there is likely little problem. But if many inverters fail to ride through, the risk of a cascading failure increases. Hence, SIRFN developed test protocols for a set of core functions to assess inverter response to grid operator signals.

12 Contributing to Market Development ISGAN Award of Excellence in partnership with the Global Smart Grid Federation (GSGF) Showcases leadership and innovation in SG projects to accelerate global exchange of best practices and promote replication or adaptation of proven concepts in other markets, countries, and regions. ISGAN ANNEX 2 CASE BOOK ON ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE GATHERS THE EXPERIENCE OF DEPLOYING SMART METERS IN 19 COUNTRIES, CHARACTERISED BY DIFFERENT NETWORK CONDITIONS, REGULATIONS, ENERGY MIX, LEGISLATION, CONSUMER REACTIONS LESSONS LEARNED FROM THIS BENCHMARK AND INSIGHT IS OF HIGH VALUE FOR THE POLICY MAKERS IMPORTANCE OF FINAL USER ACCEPTANCE, REGULATION, PRICING POLICIES, PRIVACY, CYBERSECURITY, DATA ANALYSIS (BIG DATA) AND AMI BUSINESS CASES 12

13 Contributing to Policy Insight TOP PRIORITY FOR ISGAN. UNBIASED TECHNICAL EXPERTISE AND THE DIRECT INTERACTION WITH POLICY MAKERS ARE TWO MAJOR ASSETS. SUCCESS FACTORS: TECHNICAL SOUNDNESS OF THE INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE EFFICIENT TRANSLATION OF THE TECHNICAL CONCEPTS INTO IMPACTFUL POLICY MESSAGES. DEDICATED ANNNEX SET UP SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE INITIATIVE. ISGAN ANNEX 2 ASSISTING THE GOVERNMENTS OF MEXICO AND SOUTH AFRICA MEXICO S TRANSFORMATIVE POWER SYSTEM REFORMS: OPPORTUNITIES TO INTEGRATE ADVANCED DEVICES AND APPROACHES INTO MEXICO S ELECTRICITY GRID AND ACTIVELY SEEKING INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE ON THIS TOPIC SOUTH AFRICA DEVELOPING THE MARKET FOR ROOFTOP PHOTOVOLTAIC: EFFECTIVELY SHOWCASED EMERGING FRAMEWORKS, METHODOLOGIES, AND EXPERIENCES FOR INTEGRATING ROOFTOP PV IN ELECTRIC POWER SYSTEMS AND MARKETS, AND HOW THEY COULD POTENTIALLY BE APPLIED IN SOUTH AFRICA 13

14 Strategy Key messages ISGAN emphasizes the importance of strong, reliable, resilient, flexible, and affordable power grids, supported by the digitalization of the electricity system for achievement of goals on the grid edge (e.g., integration of EVs, RE, energy storage, and demand side management) The path forward ISGAN notes five (5) major global trends for electricity systems: decarbonization, decentralization, integration, digitalization, and (broader, sustained attention to) economic growth and access Of critical importance to progress on all five trends is the flexibility of the electricity system enabled by smart grid solutions Flexibility and digitalization principal themes for 2017 and
