Seminar on European energy system transformation: the rise of energy prosumers and smart technologies

Monday, 4th June 2018 at 5:30pm - 7pm

Location: @ Black Box, Creative Hub / Kultuurikatel, Estonia, Tallinn

This event is in the past.

PA Energy coordinator are organised a seminar within the 9th Annual Forum of the EUSBSR.

Energy consumers – both households and businesses – are in the heart of the Energy Union and the EUSBSR PA Energy. The changes in the energy system are steps taken to be closer to the EU set targets after 2020. Smart technologies empower consumers, allowing the development of consumerdemand response and stimulating the rise of new type of actors referred to as prosumers - an entity such as household, cooperative and local enterprise that produces and consumes energy (electricity, heating & cooling etc.) in one.
Smart technologies have been around for a while now – yet how well did they perform since first introduced a couple years ago? What is the growth potential for them in the nearest future? How they help to actively involve consumers? And what are the key challenges?

The idea of the seminar is to bring the post-2020 smart energy technology developments closer to EUSBSR.
