CMAEL – GUSEE Biennal Joint Meeting

Naples, Italy
September 19 - September 20, 2023

The biennial joint meeting CMAEL-GUSEE is the forum of the National Community of academics and researchers in the scientific-disciplinary fields ING-IND/32 (Converters, Machines and Electric Drives) and ING-IND/33 (Electrical Power Systems). It is the place where the scientific-technological research topics developed in the areas of interest from the different universities are presented, with the possibility to discuss and compare the main results obtained.

It is also a tradition to present in a comparative way the educational offer provided in the Italian Universities (Bachelor, Master, PHD…). The Meeting also aims to improve the interaction and exchange of ideas between the representatives of the different universities, both to start or consolidate inter-university collaborations, both to have a broader vision of possible future developments in the scientific areas and application domains of interest.

Future of the Grid exchange

Johannesburg, South Africa
September 13 - September 14, 2023

Globally, the transition from traditional generators to high levels of variable renewable and distributed energy resources is already challenging traditional models of system operations. Yet achieving global net zero greenhouse gas emissions and universal energy access goals will crucially depend on reliable, stable, and decarbonised electricity systems. The reorganisation of electricity systems to integrate high levels of variable renewable energy (VRE) and the associated investment in grid infrastructure are critical interventions in meeting energy security, climate and development goals, and South Africa’s just transition aspirations – but are not without their challenges.

This knowledge exchange will synthesise learnings and insights from international system operators (SO) and grid experts in the operation of higher VRE power systems, providing real-world examples of challenges, lessons learned, and current and future interventions to enable higher levels of VRE in different contexts.
