In June, more than 400 energy professionals from the south-eastern region of the International Council for Large Electric Systems CIGRÉ will get togеther in Kyiv to discuss the prospects for energy modernization and development
The 2nd Regional Conference SEERC 2018: Energy Security and Innovation takes place in Kyiv, on June 12-13, organized by the International Council on Large Electrical Systems in Ukraine CIGRÉ.
The purpose of the conference is a productive dialogue between all stakeholders in the energy market: representatives of energy generating companies and power distribution companies, energy equipment and services manufacturers, innovators and new energy systems developers, Ukrainian authorities and the international energy community, as well as all those who are interested in the formation and development of the electricity market.
The New Energy Strategy of Ukraine until 2035 defines strategic areas and terms of further functioning and development of the Ukrainian energy system on its way to integration into the unified European energy system, in particular, implementation of modern globally competitive scientific researches of systems and equipment. At the moment, innovative infrastructure projects are successfully operating. In the year 2017 important changes have been introduced in energy management and four regulating Ukraine's energy efficiency laws were approved. Therefore, the possibility of exchanging experience between Ukrainian energy market participants and other experts is extremely important, as well as discussion of the fastest and most effective ways of European integration of the Ukrainian energy system.
What does energy Euro-integration mean for Ukraine?
  • Conscious Energy Efficient Society
  • Independence of the fuel and energy complex
  • Implementation of modern management system
  • Growth of the investment attractiveness of Ukraine's energy sector
Among the issues to be discussed:
  • Future perspective of the South-Eastern energy market 
  • The issue of electricity metering in the Region 
  • New issues in energy trading 
  • New connections between energy systems (aerial lines and cables, underwater cables, high-voltage direct currents)
  • Impact of energy demand on market conditions 
  • Examples of energy system shutdown (ice storms, flooding and wind storms, cyberattacks, physical attack, fires, earthquakes)   
  • Managing resistance challenges with due consideration of new network codes, preparatory programs, examples of successful practice Projects of Micro and Smart Networks
