ENERGY TALKS #2 Innovative storage integration: bridging the gap between industrial needs and grid codes

Date: 29th May 2024
Time: 11am – 12pm (CEST)
Registration link: here

In the second of the energy talk series promoted by i-STENTORESINNOGENES and 2LIPP , we will be exploring the intersection of industrial user requirements and grid connection codes in the context of innovative storage solutions’ integration.  

In this talk to be hosted by the AGISTIN project on the 29th at 11am (CEST), we will be looking at innovative storage requirements needs from the point of view of the industrial users, the implications of grid connection codes in storage integration and strategies to mitigate potential blockers in grid network codes when integrating innovative storage in industrial sites. This talk will prompt discussions on strategies for ensuring seamless grid interconnection and compliance with relevant standards.

This talk will feature a presentation from Thibault Prevost (RTE) and moderation from Maria Mazuera (EASE). We’ll have also invited speakers from i-STENTORE and SINNOGENES projects.


Thibault Prevost is System Stability expert at RTE (the French TSO). He graduated from Centrale Supelec in 2007 and has been working in R&D since. He initially worked on grid connection studies for renewable and European grid codes for generators.  He is now working on the operation of a system with a high share of power electronic interfaced generation and grid forming control, and participating in the AGISTIN project in WP2 and 3.

Clara Gouveia is a member of the Board of INESC TEC and a Senior Researcher at the Centre for Power and Energy Systems, where she also led DMS/EMS and network automation area. Clara received her MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto (FEUP) in 2008 and 2015 respectively. Her research interests are focused on smart distribution grids, considering the large-scale integration of Distributed Energy Resources and microgrid concepts. She has been involved in several national and European projects, such as EUniversal and SENSIBLE focusing on the use of distributed energy resources flexibility to improve distribution network operation, during normal and emergency conditions, and now in SINNOGENES.

Rui Martins is anElectrical Eng. at Studies and Planning Directorate of Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira, SA – EEM (Madeira and Porto Santo Islands TSO and DSO) with experience in Energy Management Systems modelling, electric mobility charging infrastructure and distributed storage systems. Currently collaborating in the Portuguese Pilot of the i-STENTORE Project:  Pump hydro Storage system combined with BESSs.


Maria Mazuera is a Senior EU Funding Consultant at the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE). She is an energy engineer with previous experience in sustainable energy systems and energy efficiency. Maria is passionate about contributing to the energy transition and the decarbonization of the environment. She is leading the Exploitation task one the AGISTIN WP7 Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation.

About the Energy Talk Series: the AGISTIN project has joined the sister projects i-STENTORESINNOGENES and 2LIPP to launch a monthly series of collaborative Energy Talks, poised to foster knowledge exchange and networking within the energy landscape. These Energy Talks will serve as hubs of innovation in the energy field, where participants can delve into pertinent topics, exchange best practices, and explore emerging trends.
