Smart energy should create economic value via integrating renewables and demand in the electricity system, improving operational efficiency and better asset optimisation. The key question is if the drivers behind smart energy are strong enough to redesign the current market & policy and if yes, what direction are we heading to?
Smart Utilities Scandinavia 2013 will bring together 250+ of your industry peers to open up dialogue and regional collaboration via addressing the key themes, such as:
- What are the risks and barriers for smart energy roll-outs?
- What policy push is there to ensure that we capture changes in customer behaviour?
- Which barrier(s) are hindering the deployment of low-carbon energy projects most significantly?
- What are the pioneering regional projects telling us about what our energy future may look like?
- Which are the key emerging energy technologies? Which approaches are leading the way and why?
