Power Transmission & Distribution > Cross Border Electricity Trading in Asia - Renewable Energy, Digital Technologies and New Operational Flexibility Solutions – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

This 3 half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course highlights the impact of the introduction of renewable energy, digital technologies and new operational flexibility solutions in the electricity trading market. These advancements facilitate unique opportunities and challenges for cross border trading of electricity.

Most countries in Asia, have designed their own portfolio of climate actions with an accelerated penetration of renewable energy (or by importing renewable energy into their local grids). These changes are taking place at unprecedented speed and add further complexity to the operation of electricity trading markets, while presenting new opportunities.

The Asian market, can tap into its vast potential of solar, wind and geothermal energy sources. A global, unified vision is emerging to support each of countries’ energy needs and decarbonization goals.

This VILT course will highlight priorities of each country to achieve its energy goals. The main operational flexibilities of each type of renewable resource are discussed in detail. The course also discusses the main components of Power Purchase Agreements and advancements in digitalization and how digital technologies can influence the energy market and cross border electricity trading.

Key Takeaways:

  1. New Energy Market Design
  2. Cross Border Trading
  3. PPAs Mechanisms and Examples of PPAs
  4. The Increased Penetration of Renewable Resources in the Power Systems and How It Stimulates Cross Border Trading
  5. How Digital Innovation Drives Energy Markets and Cross Border Trading

Upon completion of this VILT course, participants will be able to:

  • Be familiar with the global vision of One Sun, One World, One Grid
  • Understand the major trends reshaping the energy markets
  • Learn how innovative digital technologies change the energy markets
  • Understand why sustainable energy markets require a tighter coordination between transmission and distribution system operators
  • Engage with each other to design the energy market of the future

This VILT course will benefit policy makers and regulators from energy agencies, transmission companies and utilities as well as power system engineers and power system operators from control centre and ISO.

The VILT will be delivered online in 3 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, including time for lectures, discussion, quizzes and short classroom exercises.

Course Duration: 3 half-day sessions, 4 hours per session (12 hours in total).
