How to achieve massive integration of solar energy in island grids: Join TwInSolar’s upcoming online workshop

Organised jointly by the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of La Reunion in the framework of the TwInSolar project, a technical and scientific workshop will address the topic of “Modelling individual components and a whole energy system, which integrates a large share of variable renewables”.


On April 8th (13.00-17.00 Reunion Time / 11.00-15.00 Brussels Time) and April 9th (same time), participants will follow high-level lectures by DTU researchers.

The event is free of charge.


With a 1,48 million euros budget, TwInSolar is funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe programme. Led by the University of La Reunion, the project aims at bridging the research gaps on solar energy to accelerate the energy transition in the island of La Reunion, an Outermost region with geographic and market size limitations. CPMR (the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions) is one of the partners.


Focusing on solar forecasting and smart management of energy systems, TwInSolar aims at building a smart microgrid and at empowering the R&I community in the tropical and remote island of La Reunion, achieving massive integration of solar energy. Capacity building activities will increase the participation of the University of La Reunion, which is a reference for tropical climates, insular and remote areas, in European research projects.
