    Stephanie Ropenus joined Agora Energiewende as a Senior Associate in June 2014. She is responsible for grid integration, digitalization as well as the Nordic countries. Her recent projects looked into innovative tools for grid operation to increase the utilization of existing grid capacity and the development of concepts for “smart markets”, i.e., flexibility markets for managing grid congestion. Before she worked as a policy advisor at the German WindEnergy Association, with a special focus on grid integration, from 2010 to 2014. Her areas of expertise comprise both political and technical aspects (network codes) of grid integration as well as the revision of energy laws (in particular, Renewable Energy Act and German Energy Act). She established and coordinated the “Grids Working Group” within her association. Prior to that, Stephanie Ropenus worked as a scientist in the field of energy economics at Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, Technical University of Denmark (today DTU) in Roskilde/Denmark. Her research focused on European projects on the integration of renewable energy sources in the electricity sector. Stephanie Ropenus took her PhD in economics on "Distributed Generation in European Electricity Markets - Current Challenges and Future Opportunities". She received an M.Sc. in EU Business and Law from the Aarhus School of Business.

    More background on security of supply through #renewables and how wind and solar have shifted the German energy system towards more #flexibility can be found here: bit.ly/3Ss6ir5

    Q4: How can Germany secure #energysupply while working towards its decarbonisation goals? Until the current crisis, the shift to #renewables improved security of supply and reduced power capacity shortages, maintaining the reliability of Germany’s power system. pic.twitter.com/FD6F72FWKB
