TSCNET Forums are prime opportunities to share and exchange ideas with fellow users and experts from TSCNET Services and other transmission system operators (TSOs) that are a member of TSC. On June 27-29, 2017, we welcomed 32 participants from twelve European countries to this year’s Forum in Fall near Lenggries in the Karwendel Alps of Bavaria.
The Forum attendees could not only connect with colleagues, but take part in presentations (e.g. about the status of the Regional Security Coordination in Europe, the Capacity Calculation Regions, and the “Winter Package” of the European Commission), demonstrations (“CGMES project”, “TSCNET’s MRA tool”, “Visualisation at TSCNET”, and “AMICA live”), and workshops (“New release of Rulebook and feedback” as well as “IT change management process guide”). On the third day, we also offered a so-called poster session covering nearly half a dozen different issue-areas (“Operations”, “IT”, “Unicorn”, “Business Development”, plus “E-Learning”).
Next to the representatives of Unicorn, TSCNET’s long-term IT partner, we had a special external guest this time: Jan Van Roost, the new Chief Operating Officer from Coreso, the Regional Security Coordinator (RSC) owned by 50Hertz, Elia, National Grid, REE, REN, RTE, and Terna. “We were eager about getting up a programme with a great variety of methods, tools, activities, and approaches,” explains Christoph Meinersmann, TSCNET’s external communications expert who served as the moderator again.
Lots of quality content, plus big fun
“The TSCNET Forum with its exceptional team-building character always is kind of overwhelming for all of us,” said Marlene Petz, Data Quality Manager at TSCNET and responsible for a part of the event’s programme. “It shows how great it is to collaborate and put into life ideas on how to connect on a professional as well as a social level.” Diana Babiac, IT Project Manager at TSCNET, agrees: “Three days packed with fun and interesting topics tailored for a diverse audience, and all that in a picturesque setting.”
Péter Ambrus, the head of TSCNET’s organising team, adds: “It was for sure a remarkable event, not just due to the lots of valuable ideas exchanged, but also due to a lot of fun and new friends made.” His résumé: “It was really great to see that all the efforts put into the organisation resulted in a successful event with satisfied participants again.” Unreserved approval!
