From August 24th, until September 3rd, R&D Nester will participate in this year's edition of the CIGRE Conference.

Established in 1921 in Paris, France, CIGRE is a global community committed to the collaborative development and sharing of power system expertise. The community features thousands of professionals from over 90 countries and 1250 member organisations, including some of the world's leading experts.

At its heart are CIGRE's 59 in country National Committees offering diverse technical perspectives and expertise from every corner of the globe.

CIGRE operates the world's foremost knowledge programme, spanning 16 domains of work encompassing all the core areas of the power system. Across these domains 250+ Working Groups draw and build on practical expertise to solve existing and future challenges facing the power system.

Due to the current situation of covid-19 pandemic, this year's edition was forced to change its format. Instead of traditional face-to-face sessions, the conference will be virtual.

R&D Nester will make the following 2 presentations:

"Remote monitoring overhead lines using satellite images"

This work presents the use-cases underlying the development of two satellite-based services designed to perform remote monitoring and automatic control of the right-of-ways' (RoW) field management activities and for the planning of new critical infrastructures. These services aim at supporting the Transmission System operators, among ohter potential users, in delivering cost-efficient security of supply with regard to environmental protection.


"To socialise or not to socialise the cost of imbalances from non-programmable renewable generation"

This work studies two different models for integrating non-programmable electricity generation from renewable energy sources in the Portuguese electricity market: 1) guaranteed remuneration with socialised imbalance costs and 2) spot market remuneration without socialised imbalance costs.
