Presentation Title: "Accelerating the Transition to a Zero Carbon Electricity System: An Action Plan for Streamlining Connection Applications"

Synopsis: This presentation will provide an overview of the growing challenges with the surging connection applications of renewable energy technologies into the electricity network. Bio: It will give insights of ESO's five-point plan for connection reform, and how the storage technologies can support the operability needs of the system. Currently, she serves as a Power System Engineer for NG ESO in the Connection Operability Assessment team, where she is engaged in innovation projects related to modeling storage in the connection process and Construction Planning Assumptions. Her primary area of interest lies in the integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) in distribution networks.
