SUSPLAN Regional Results Workshop

SUSPLAN conducted 9 individual regional RES integration scenario studies in different geographical regions across Europe. Each study focuses on the regional characteristics and challenges. 

Characteristics for the Alpine Region:

  • Same characteristics like Central/ Western Europe
  • Significant storage option due to pumped hydro storage power plants
  • Significant electricity hubs North/ South

The SUSPLAN Regional Results Workshop Alpine Region took place:

Tuesday 03rd of May 2010, 9 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
