During September, Bert Herteleer gave the key note speech to the European PV and Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) in Brussels, on the interaction between renewables and the grid, based on Knowledge and performance data from ARENA’s Remote and Regional Australia portfolio. The speech and paper were the result of a fruitful collaboration between Power and Water Corporation, ARENA and Ekistica. The speech was included as one of the EU PVSEC highlights presentation by Dr Robert Kenny during which he spent several minutes discussing the impacts for the PV industry. The presentation was again delivered for the NT October Business month. Ekistica has been working with ARENA in a Knowledge Sharing partnership over the past few years, and has received positive feedback from both ARENA and other industry leaders.
