  1. 1. Implementing Agreement DayBrussels, 06/12/2011 – Hubert Lemmens, Chief Innovation Officer
  2. 2. Unique situation in the EU Ownership Elia • 100% of 380-150kV network • 94% of high voltage network (70-30kV) 50Hertz • 100% of 380-220kV network - 34% of the German 380kV network - 19% owner of the German 220kV network Age of networks Elia • Less than 10 years for 50% of underground cables • Less than 20 years for 50% of lines & substations 50Hertz • Around 10 years for 90% of the network (refurbished after German reunification in 1989)06/12/2011 2
  3. 3. Elia with 50Hertz = TOP 5 TSO in Europe 110 to 380 kV lines & cables 13,431km 30 to 70 kV lines & cables 4,800km Number of substations 872 Area covered (km2) c.143,000 Direct customers c.130 Residents covered >29 million Employees (FTE) c.1,800 Regulated Asset Base (RAB) €5,097m Critical mass to play a leading role in future developments06/12/2011 3
  4. 4. Drivers for Innovation• Elia grid in the center of Western Europe• Strongly meshed between large power systems of France and Germany• Subject to loopflows between French nuclear plants and German wind• Management driven positioning in Europe• Strong Elia involvement in TSO cooperation• Phase Shifting Transformers on Belgian borders• Lead in European Wind Integration Study06/12/2011 4
  5. 5. TSOs have to boost R&D Business needs due to integration of renewables EWIS, etc. European Electricity Grid Initiative (EEGI) 2000 2010 2020 203006/12/2011 5
  6. 6. European Strategic Energy Technology Plan ccs FCH Smart Cities EWI NUCLEAR EEGI European Electricity Grid Initiative BIO SOLAR 606/12/2011 6
  7. 7. EEGI• One of the pillars of the SET plan• Leading role by Elia• Includes T and D topics• 2 b€ to be invested in R&D during 2010 - 2018• T-topics embedded in Entso-e R&D plan• Accepted by EC and member states during SET plan conference in June 2010• Reference program for R&D in grid related matters.06/12/2011 7
  8. 8. Some achievements and ongoing actions: a few examples06/12/2011 8
  9. 9. European Wind Integration Study (EWIS) • Duration June 2007- April 2010 (34 months) • An EC SmartGrids project (FP6) • Competent Market Model Partner SUPWISci Northern consortium UK & Ireland • Close cooperation with external stakeholders: • Network operators (TSOs and DSOs) • Wind power producers and turbine BALTIC developers • Market participantsCENTRAL WEST CENTRAL EAST • Relevant studies and working groups on Wind integration SOUTH EAST - TradeWind, IEA-Task 25, GreenpeaceSOUTH WEST study, EC Working group for Offshore/ CENTRAL SOUTH onshore grid development, EWEA WG Grid Codes, PLEF, Wind on the grid … • Consumers • Regulatory representatives • National Governments and authorities… 06/12/2011 9
  10. 10. Flexibility• 3 phase shifters in the Van Eyck & Zandvliet HV station Improved control of neighbouring energy flows on the Elia grid for an improved reliability Optimisation of transmission capacity with interconnected networks The next step is to coordinate the operation of power flow devices taking into new regulatory issues 06/12/2011 10
  11. 11. Cross border Coordination CORESO : Regional Coordination Service Center (RTE, ELIA, National Grid, 50 HzT, Terna) www.coreso.eu • Re-optimizing power grid (max SoS & transm cap) • operational safety of the system, • massive integration of renewable (wind energy) • development of the electricity market in the Central-Western Europe (CWE)06/12/2011 11
  12. 12. Enhanced overhead lines using thesame right of way 150kV line (approx 600 MVA) versus “insulated arms” 380kV line ( up to 5000 MVA)06/12/2011 12
  13. 13. TWENTIES - Flexgrid GOAL: Better integration of renewables Ampacimon More stable and flexible grid KUL: Optimal Stability ULg: Dynamic Power flow Margins Line Rating PMU Control devices ULB: WAMS Help establish Good Operating Practices06/12/2011 13
  14. 14. On-going R&D projects with EC support• 7MW-WEC-by-11 Estinnes (WindVision, Enercon, Sarens, ELIA, ENECO, 3E, K.U. Leuven, TSO Cyprus, EAC - Ancillary Services delivery (Voltage control and Secundary Control)• OPTIMATE (Elia, ENBW TNG, REE, RTE, 50 HzT) - A simulation platform to analyze electricity market design options involving transmission constraints, results by end 2012• Ecogrid (SINTEF, Energinet.dk, Ostkraft, DTU-CET, Elia, Eandis, Siemens, IBM Research, Labein, AIT, ECN, UoT, EnCT) - A Smart Grid prototype for the Future06/12/2011 14
  15. 15. Conclusions• Fight against climat change pose important challenges on Electricity System• Transmission System Operators play a central role in the change• Elia Group is willing to contribute• Availability of human resources is crucial• We welcome international cooperation.06/12/2011 15
