Topic: Smart Grids beyond electricity
Abstract: The present Smart Grid vision emphasises the role of electricity as the energy vector with limited consideration of the role of other energy networks. This Panel Session will explore the role of other energy vectors (e.g. gas, heat and hydrogen) in de-carbonising the energy system over the medium term. It will consider the benefits of considering the energy system as an integrated whole. In particular it will address what can be learnt from the techniques used to analyse the development and operation of different energy networks and how these can be combined to ensure the energy system as a whole is optimised.
