AUI Faculty and SEM Students Participate in a Training on Smart Grid at the University of Newcastle

Dr. Ahmed Khallaayoun and Mr. Rachid Lghoul, along with two graduate students enrolled in the AUI Sustainable Energy Management program, are attending a two-week training on the latest developments of Smart Grids. The program is part of an EU Erasmus + Project called AT-SGIRES – Advanced Teaching and training on Smart Grid & Grid Integration of Renewable Energy Systems – and is held Sep. 2-13, 2019. The training focuses on the current and future challenges grid stakeholders face with the increased integration of intermittent Renewable Energy Resources (RES) and electric vehicles.  The training coincided with the UK Energy Storage Conference, which the AUI team also attended. The conference topic primarily focused on how energy storage can provide solutions to many of the challenges facing the future electric grid.
