Overview of our events
Forecasting with BoFiT
The training course Forecasting with BoFiT offers a systematic and well-grounded introduction to BoFiT Forecast. After an overview over the various forecasting procedures, new users and upgraders will learn how forecasts are set up, analyzed and used in day-to-day operations. The theoretical knowledge acquired is consolidated by practical exercises.
CHP in industry, commerce and real estate
Private generation was one of the major trends of recent years. In addition to private households, an increasing number of companies in industry and commerce are investing in generating their own electricity. Local generation facilities are becoming increasingly interesting for the real estate industry also. Companies with high heating, steam and cooling loads frequently choose highly efficient power-heat (cooling) cogeneration. But what does the bill look like now the renewable energy surcharge is applied to privately generated electricity? Under which conditions is private generation profitable and how can it be implemented? How can private generation facilities be managed optimally?
Direct Marketing of Renewable Energy
The cyclical amendment of the German Renewable Energy Law (EEG) must be monitored and assessed continuously with regard to its effects and opportunities for marketing. The ProCom workshop on direct marketing gives you an overview over the current regulatory requirements and highlights technical solutions and business models to enable you to market renewable energy efficiently and profitably.
Competitive Factor Forecasts
Forecasts for prices, loads and generation are a significant competitive factor. But it is not only the quality of the forecast that determines success. An increasing amount of forecast data have to be processed promptly and securely at different places in the company. Forecasts are increasingly determining business processes and profitability in a changed energy market. The workshop gives an overview over utilization, benefits and methods of the necessary forecasts in the energy sector for consumption, generation and prices.
Intraday Processes with ITA and BoFiT Optimization
The training course Intraday Processes with ITA and BoFiT Optimization explains to participants how rolling intraday planning and optimization with exchange trading interact. The complete intraday process is explained to participants in BoFiT Optimization and ITA and is subsequently implemented and analyzed.
Balancing Energy with BoFiT
The training course Balancing Energy with BoFiT comprises a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part explains how balancing energy markets function, gives an insight into business processes and looks at compiling bids and bid strategies. In the practical part you will learn step by step how to model balancing energy markets with BoFiT using a realistic example.
Storage Evaluation and Management
Management Efficient storage is a key technology to tackle the energy transition. The pressing need for flexibility, brought about by the expansion of renewable energies, has given rise to numerous possible technical solutions. But what about profitability in a real case scenario? How much will the flexibility of a storage facility be worth tomorrow? How can this flexibility be brought to market?
The Energy Sector for Water Suppliers
There are numerous interfaces between the water and energy sectors. It is at these points that you will often find innovative solutions that enable intelligent management of both resources. The workshop The Energy Sector for Water Suppliers gives specialists and managers in the water industry a systematic overview over the energy sector and highlights these interfaces. Innovative concepts and solutions are presented and discussed.
Virtual Power Plants
Bringing virtual power plants, decentralized power generation systems, storage facilities and consumers together in an intelligent network is groundbreaking. You can generate electricity and heat at low economic and ecological cost - exactly where they are needed. At the same time they can be managed and marketed centrally, offering additional opportunities to generate revenue. The aim of the workshop is to give an overview over the structure and opportunities to implement virtual power plants and to explain the significance of virtual power plants in the energy sector.
Basic Obligations to Inform: REMIT & ERRP
The ongoing regulation of the energy sector means the obligations of the relevant companies to inform are growing constantly. Large data volumes in different formats and granularities have to be exchanged securely with different bodies within ever shorter time frames. For the companies affected this means, in addition to considerable added costs, continuous new organizational challenges. That is why the ProCom workshop on basic obligations to inform goes beyond the current and planned basic obligations to look at ways in which companies can gear up to respond flexibly to ever-changing regulatory requirements.
Flexibility in Industry and Commerce
Energy-intensive companies are under immense pressure from competition and costs. This makes energy a decisive production factor. This workshop starts where efficiency measures at the plant level and energy management systems stop. The dynamic, liberalized energy markets offer industry and commerce attractive opportunities. In this workshop we give you the necessary basic knowledge to help you assess and utilize opportunities with confidence.
Balancing Energy Markets
With the decline in prices at the classic trading places the balancing energy markets are coming to the fore. Opportunities and risks must be carefully weighed before participating in balancing energy markets. In addition to pre-qualification, there are other numerous organizational and IT challenges to overcome.
The training course ITA Basics comprises a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical section explains how the intraday market functions and gives an overview over the necessary business processes and data flows. In the practical part you will be given the necessary basic knowledge so you can use ITA confidently in daily operations.
The intraday market continues to grow in importance! The reason is the rapid expansion of renewable energies and the growing need for short-term flexibility. Participation in the intraday market offers new opportunities for flexible management of your own portfolio - but it also makes great demands on your organization.
