The Melbourne Energy Institute invites you to attend a public lecture by Professor Jovica Milanović from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Pierluigi Mancarella, Program Leader in Energy Systems at the Melbourne Energy Institute.
What will net-zero networks look like, and how will they operate? In this presentation, Professor Milanović introduces the characteristics and challenges of the distribution network environment, now and in the future.
First, the presentation will briefly introduce the key characteristics of future net-zero distribution networks and summarise the key challenges associated with their operation, modelling and control. Second, examples will be discussed of the latest research results in distribution network modelling and operation. Finally, the presentation will end with a brief summary of current developments in the UK related to the Electricity Distribution Price Control 2023-2028 (RIIO-ED2). The RIIO-ED2 price control sets the outputs that the 14 electricity Distribution Network Operators need to deliver for their consumers and the associated revenues they are allowed to collect for the five-year period from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2028. Lessons will be drawn for operation, modelling and control of future net-zero distribution networks.
The lecture will be presented in person and streamed online.
