Our energy supply is currently undergoing a massive transformation, with "energy transition" and "energy security" being the driving factors. This presentation will look at the associated challenges from the point of view of the electricity transmission system operator, which as one of the main players in the background ensures that the electricity comes out of the socket today and will do so tomorrow.

The electricity transmission system operator has a duty to ensure security of supply. In practice, this task spans operationally from the technical integration of renewable energies, the provision and expansion of the networks to the daily forecasting, monitoring and control of energy flows. Strategically, the TSO carries out calculations of future scenarios (e.g. in the grid stress test nuclear power) and develops market models to shape the European energy market design. In the lecture, these topics will be exemplified and deepened from a technical point of view, thus giving an insight into the exciting transformation of our energy landscape.
