DEI Public Lecture - Low Carbon Integrated Energy Systems: Technical and Institutional Challenges and Opportunities

13th May 2015, 18:00 to 19:00, Ken Wade Lecture Theatre, Calman Learning Centre, Prof Mark O'Malley

Globally, there is an undeniable trend towards low carbon integrated energy systems. These systems have some unique characteristics that will be highlighted in particular with respect to variable renewable energy technologies (e.g. wind and solar photovoltaic). High penetrations of these variable renewables can be achieved by increasing the levels of integration across the energy system (e.g. heat in the form of demand management in electricity). The technical & institutional challenges and opportunities of highly integrated energy systems will be explored.

Mark O’Malley, is the Professor of Electrical Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD). He is the director of the UCD Energy Institute and Electricity Research Centre, a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, industry-supported research activity. O’Malley is also co-founder of the International Institute for Energy Systems Integration (IESI), a global community of scholars and practitioners engaged in developing an efficient world energy system. He is a Member of the Royal Irish Academy and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers. He is recognized as a world authority on grid integration of renewable energy and has active research collaborations in Europe, China and the United States, in particular with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
