WSP Head of Power for Asia Mr Stephen Green was invited to speak at this year’s Electricity Distribution Conference (EDC SEA 2019) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 19 and 20 March. 

Mr Green presented a paper that highlights the growth trends with intermittent renewable generation across the globe, identifying the drivers behind these trends and comparing penetration levels in Asia. His paper also reviewed the rapid increase in renewable generation, types and characteristics, and the impact on network operations. The paper also explored how energy storage can be applied as an effective tool by network operators in maintaining system stability.

EDC SEA 2019, organised by CIRED and supported by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) and ASEAN, is a conference tailored to the needs of the ASEAN utilities and this year’s theme focuses on “Sustainable Modernisation for future electricity”.
