Distributed generation is one of the answers to the challenges for the energy system but also poses new questions. Completely new technical and organisational requirements occur. Basic system issues like network management, capacity planning, stability, protection strategies and quality of supply as well as optimisation of energy supply and demand massively come to the fore. The borders between energy producers and costumers increasingly blur. New business models need to be developed.
In the framework of the strategy finding process ENERGY 2050 of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology the research area "Energy Systems and Networks" should be enhanced and concretised. This year's "2nd International Symposium for Distributed Electricity Generation and Smart Grids" is focused on practical research in the field of future network operation and the associated fields of information and communication technology, metering and network simulation. Within the scope of the symposium international experiences and expectations for future developments will be presented and discussed with an audience of experts from industry, research and development as well as from administration and authorities.
