Two major prizes for Kavac’s dissertation “The cooperation of grid operators in the electricity sector against the background of the digitalisation and decentralisation of energy systems”
We are pleased to announce that Dr Louise Sophia Kavacs’ outstanding dissertation “The cooperation of grid operators in the electricity sector against the background of the digitalisation and decentralisation of energy systems” has received two major awards.
Dr Kavacs’ work deals with the active role of grid operators as managers of the electricity system, taking into account the development of a decentralised and digitalised energy system. The comprehensive study extends over 341 pages and methodically analyses the system of so-called regulated self-regulation. It analyses cooperation processes at European and national level, including the consideration of informal processes prior to legislation. The dissertation also presents ideas for improving the current regulation of congestion management and formulates these as a mandate to the legislator, which creates a link between fundamental scientific findings and practical implementation.
Dr Louise Kavacs was awarded two prestigious prizes this year for her outstanding scientific achievements:
