How Renewables and Distributed Resource Penetration Impacted Transmission in Germany

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently presented at the Transmission Executive Forum West. This event provided a unique opportunity to meet and network with other key stakeholders and find solutions to the problems facing the transmission business.

During the Transmission Executive Forum West, Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader atScottMadden, presented the case study, “How Renewables and Distributed Resource Penetration Impacted Transmission in Germany.” This presentation focused on Germany and explored how grid operations have changed and how transmission flows and utility revenues have been affected.

Key topics of discussion included:

  • Overview of German energy transformation
  • Status of renewable generation penetration
  • Impact on transmission investment and reliability

“The situation in Germany is more complex than the headlines may lead you to believe,” said Mr. Vlahoplus. “The energy transition has several moving parts, resulting in a variety of benefits and challenges spread over a long time horizon.”
