We Accelerate the Energy Transition.

Final agenda now available

#TRAFO5 - 5th International Workshop on Power Transformer Performances

14 Nov 2018 @ 10:00-16:45 CET
Location: Brussels

The workshop will address the changing market environment for power transformers, their regulatory requirements and environmental considerations.

Large and medium power transformers are subject to energy performance regulation, which is currently under review. The revision is expected to address important aspects such as loopholes, level of ambition, relevance for repaired units. An important element is compliance to the requirements of the regulation in place. Technological progress helps to make transformer more environmentally-performant, more resistant to fire and better recyclable. These challenges are however not straightforward, especially so in an energy transition which needs to balance requirements for cost effectiveness and reliability with a need for deep decarbonisation for which grids will play a pivotal role.

This workshop is the 5th in a series that started in back in 1999, initiated by the European Copper Institute to advocate for better transformer energy performance.

Participation to this event is free, but registration is required (limited seats available).
