    Session 1
    Theme: New trends and requirements in the field of transmission and distribution systems
    In future, power distribution systems are expected to connect various forms of distributed energy resources such as solar power. This will require the development of a platform and cooperation between the demand side and the supply side to maintain the quality of electric power. The collection of fixed costs of equipment and the design of the electric power market will also become issues. This section will cover the following points:
    • The role of power transmission and distribution system operators (management of distributed power supplies, etc.)
    • Virtual Power Plant
    • Modeling of networks
    • Economic viability of platforms
    • Measures to mass PV implementation and improvement of hosting capacity
    • Power trading
    • Handling customers' shift to prosumers (acting as both producers and consumers)

  • IERE 50th Anniversary Session

    IERE is an international organization for the exchange of information on electric utility research and development established in October 1968 under the strong support and encouragement extended by leaders of electric utility industries of North America, Europe and Japan.

    During the 1990s, IERE experienced the big change of the needs of members which arose from changes in the global electricity business. At a meeting held in Hiroshima in 2000, IERE decided to change strategically and introduced re-engineering to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

    At the 50th anniversary of establishment, IERE invites two seniors deeply involved in IERE to give lectures on IERE's past activities, transformation and future prospects.
