Local event icon image

This talk will explain how we maintain the electricity balance today, and how we can do it better even when buffeted by the winds of nature and climate change.

Date and Time

02 April 2013 - 19:00-21:30

Location

Brighton, United Kingdom - icon_popup  (See map)

Organiser

Jointly organised by the Sussex and Sussex local networks.


About this event

Speaker: David Hirst, Hirst Solutions Limited

Mains electricity cannot be stored, so keeping the lights on and maintaining a stable electricity system is a continuous and challenging balancing act, making sure that, at all times, our consumptions are matched by generation. This balancing act will become harder as we replace our fossil fuelled generators, which we can control with precision, with variable and uncontrolled generation from free and inexhaustible renewable energy. This talk will explain how we maintain the balance today, and how we can do it better even when buffeted by the winds of nature and climate change.
