The Role of the Digital Sector in the Energy Transition

13/06/2017 -
13:30 to 18:00
Le Bouche à Oreille, Rue Félix Hap 11, 1040 Bruxelles

Engaging consumers in the Energy Transition is a key objective of European policy-makers, regulators and the energy industry as a whole. However, engaging consumers in energy markets has traditionally been difficult and policies to enable it have met with mixed success.

To advance this discussion, this CERRE Seminar will consider the practical steps needed to achieve this important part of the energy transition, focusing particularly on the role the digital sector can play.

The deployment of smart meters, the collection of data, the development of connected devices and the Internet of Things mean that the digital and energy sectors will interact more than ever before. The seminar will begin with a discussion of the technical challenges and opportunities for collaboration, and will feature the presentation of a number of possible technical solutions.

This seminar will also bring the digital and energy sectors together with policy-makers and regulators to discuss policy and regulatory questions that must be addressed to enable the energy sector to benefit fully from the potential of digitisation.

Further details, including a programme and list of speakers will be published in the coming days.

Tuesday 13 June 2017, 13.30-18.00,
