April 24-28, 2017: Argonne National Laboratory is hosting the 8th annual Korea Power Exchange (KPX) Training Workshop on Power Systems Planning from April 24 to 28.
The five-day seminar will guide Korean officials through U.S. renewable energy and green-house gas policy trends. The training will also examine how South Korea can benefit from alternative power system planning approaches applied in the U.S. These approaches address uncertainties arising from rapidly changing conditions as costs for natural gas and solar power decline and climate-change energy policies and national goals evolve.
The training will be led by Bruce Hamilton, a senior energy systems engineer on Argonne’s Strategic Alliance for Global Energy Solutions (SAGES) team. During the weeklong session, Hamilton will address the specific energy challenges of the Paris Agreement on greenhouse gases and describe how advanced analytics are used to shed light on economic, reliability and sustainability aspects of possible power system development pathways.
“For over three decades, we have been helping countries develop national plans for their power systems,” said Hamilton. “These types of seminars – along with Argonne’s software tools and expertise in power system planning – are important assets for energy regulators, market operators, utilities and policy makers worldwide.”
SAGES Director, Dan Fraser, notes “this energy meeting is one of many organized by SAGES at the laboratory and abroad each year as Argonne helps strengthen institutional capacities for charting a sustainable development path in industrialized and emerging nations across the globe.”
April 24-28, 2017
Sessions start at 9:00 a.m.
