If centralised power facilities are to play a role in the future energy system, it is increasing thought that they will have to feature a mixture of technologies so that they can meet the market needs and drastically reduce CO2 emissions. This means that hybrid plants will be built that incorporate wind or solar along with gas  or other thermal technology and most likely an element of energy storage. The Clean Energy Hub concept takes this stage further and envisages a plant that can convert surplus electricity generated from renewable sources into synthetic fuels to be stored and used when needed, while being able to generate it own power when peaks demand it.

Session chair, Patrick Clerens says, "Learn here where European power generation is going. It will involve energy storage, a stronger link with industry and other sectors, and a wider range of products and services that the future power plant will provide. Come to this session to learn how existing assets are already being repurposed for a decarbonised and integrated future."
