Risk Day 2020

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, 4 March 2020
EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub , Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, United Kingdom

What the Risk Day is all about

Power Systems  |  Risk  |  Uncertainty  |  Reliability  |  Modelling  |  Understanding

The EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk Day is continuing the tradition of the previous Durham Risk Day series (2010-2014) and is an annual seminar for researchers involved in all aspects of risk and uncertainty analysis applied to current and future power and energy systems. 

They had great events in Manchester in 2018 and Cambridge in 2019. This year they are going north of the border to Glasgow!

‚ÄčThis one-day event will showcase the best research and industrial applications across the following topics:

Reliability analysis of system assets

  • Understanding high impact low probability events
  • Control and optimisation of uncertain power systems
  • Planning future energy systems under uncertainty
  • Modelling and quantifying uncertainty in energy systems
  • Communicating risk to energy system stakeholders and policy makers

The event (on 4 March 2020) will be a mix of keynote presentations, oral presentations, and posters. The organisers need you and your research to make it a success so make sure you get involved and make the most of this unique opportunity to meet other researchers focused on these crucial topics.

The EPSRC Supergen Energy Networks Hub Risk Day 2020 will feature two must-see keynote talks:

Keynote Speakers
  • Professor Ragnar Lofstedt is the Director of the King's Centre of Risk Management at King's College London where he teaches and conducts research on risk communication and management, including in areas such as renewable energy policy. His presentation will discuss risk communication in the 21st century. 

  • Damian Jackman has been with SSE for over 15 years where he is Grid and Regulatory Performance Manager for the company's generation business. As well as oversight of the SSE Renewables portfolio, Damian represents SSE on several industry code review panels. His presentation will discuss emerging risks in electricity network operation. He will focus on how we can manage the risk associated with integrating increasing amounts of wind and solar - particularly when we are less certain of how they will behave under stressed network conditions.
