The energy-related targets set by EU policy require carefully examining potential solutions for the integration of renewable energy sources for electricity production into the grid. On the other side, the growing energy demand from the introduction of electric-powered cars needs an efficient concept to utilise the variable power supply. The application of dynamic techniques for prediction of electricity supply and demand, including electricity prices in the market, is expected to support the optimisation of the grid balance. The wind markets predict an installed capacity that would provide 14% of the electricity consumption in 2020. Today in Denmark the wind power accounts for more than 20% of the power production. Wind radiation production forecasts have a relatively large margin of error. However, the variable character of this renewable power supply and the 2020 significant quantities of wind capacity, impose special requirements on the whole system, including distribution and storage. It is very likely that imbalances of production and demand will occur if no efficient way of energy storage is available. Several recent research projects and studies indicate that battery capacity of electric cars could contribute to obtain an efficient way of dealing with the variable power supply from wind plants. The relative static grid system will have to become intelligent in order to deal with the future electricity supply and demand. Utilities will have to adopt large-scale renewable power technologies as core parts of their long term generation strategies. In parallel electric cars may ease the integration of renewable energies in the electricity networks and markets. This course aims to establish a state-of-the-art on the feasibility of using dynamic software tools to support the integration of large-scale renewable electricity generation plants and electricity consuming cars in our society.

Since 2009 he holds the position as Assistant Professor. His research interests are dynamics, stability and control of electric power systems; renewable energy integration; and modelling and simulation of FACTS and custom power controllers. He is an IEEE, IET and CIGRE member.
Prof. João Abel Peças Lopes (email@example.com)
João Peças Lopes was born in Portugal. He obtained a degree in Electrical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering - University of Porto in July 1981. From 1981 to 1982 he worked as Engineer in the department of studies of an electrical equipment manufacturer - EFACEC. In November 1981 he joined the staff of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Porto as teaching and research assistant. In 1988 he completed his Ph.D. at the University of Porto, having reached the highest grade. In November 1996 he obtained his Aggregation degree also from University of Porto. He is presently Full Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of FEUP – Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, being also Director of the Sustainable Energy Systems PhD program. Dr. Peças Lopes is presently Director of INESC Porto.
