Local energy communities and smart energy systems are key elements to increase the use of renewable energy resources at a local level, helping locations with weak connections to the national grid to maximise their energy independence whilst also reducing carbon emissions.
With the participation of European policy-makers and leading companies of the energy sector, the all-day event will feature the presentation of four H2020 projects that are currently conducting research activities on the implementation of local energy communities and the exploitation of smart energy systems.
A panel discussion will tackle the main points needed for the establishment of successful energy islands, considering innovations, integration between different sectors and technologies, and regulations on a international and national level.
In the afternoon, a workshop on energy local communities will take place, giving the opportunity to stakeholders and policy-makers of the energy sector to debate together around different topics: from the most innovative technologies to the impact of Clean Energy for All Europeans package; from the potential replicability of local energy communities around Europe to the business cases needed in the different member states.
A complete agenda will follow shortly. The event is free of charge.
