3rd SEERC Conference

This was our CIGRE SEERC Colloquium in Vienna, Austria 2022

Finally, we made it: the CIGRE SEERC community met in Vienna, Austria and used the chance to discuss current projects and new ideas during the CIGRE SEERC Colloquium, 31st of May-2nd of June, 2022.

Many thanks to all of our 150 participants and guests who took part in the colloquium week and enjoyed 15 lectures, 9 presentations in the tutorials and and around 30 scientific posters.

Highlights:

The personal handover of the CIGRE SEERC Presidency of Austria, represented by Klemens Reich (Chairman CIGRE-SEERC 2018-2021) to Turkey, represented by İzzet Alagöz (current Chairman CIGRE-SEERC) could be fulfilled in person.

We listened to brilliant keynote speeches given by Gerhard Christiner and Helmut Hojesky, who covered the content of the upcoming challenges for a sustainable energy supply in Europe with a specific focus on the Austrian situation.

Focus during colloquia on the first day was an insight into current projects for the energy transition, held by the SEERC countries Turkey, Slovenia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina and Austria. There was a wide range of topics during the tutorials on the first day, from cyber security management on the one side to innovative solutions for active distribution grids on the other side.

The second colloquium day was dedicated to the panels: History of the SEERC Region, New Generation Network, Women in Energy – which was a great success!

After the closing session, we started the trip for the final excursion to AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and its brand new DC Lab-a development and validation platform for DC components for manufacturers and operators of DC systems.
