About the conference

The fourth RSC Conference takes place on November 24th, hosted this year by the Baltic RSC, in collaboration with ENTSO-E. Each RSC Conference reflects regional specificities. The Baltic RSC will focus its agenda on the digital dimension of the regional coordination. The event will discuss the future of RSCs with an emphasis on the evolution of the regulatory framework and emerging challenges arising from the integration of large-scale renewable energy sources. The role of digitalisation and data availability as a main driver for innovation in the RSC community, as well as service quality improvement, will also be central to the discussion. The RSC Conference 2020 is aimed at increasing transparency and at exchanging with stakeholders from the power sector and beyond.
