Bits & Watts’ Smart Grid Seminar provides experts from academia, startups, research institutes, and large corporations to familiarize seminar participants with current challenges and advances in grid data analytics, economics, market design, battery storage, electrified transportation, power electronics, renewable energy. 

Speaker: Qing He, Senior Engineer, Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (North America Office)

Seminar Abstract:With the increasing interconnectivity of the power grid, the benefits will be a qualitative leap forward. Based on changes such as high proportion of intermittent clean energy access, high-voltage high-capacity controllable DC transmission technology and the ever-expanding scale of interconnection, the concept of global energy interconnection (GEI) is put forward. In the future, GEI with the ability of inclusiveness, mutual assistance, access to a variety of renewable energy sources, could make full use of different energy resources by space-time complementarity, and promote clean energy as the dominant energy source.
