"The power of Digital Innovation Hubs to accelerate the digitalization of Europe’s energy transition". Join our EUSEW policy session on 27 September 2022 (14:30-16:00 CET) and get involved in EU sustainable energy policy discussions.
Together with DG ENERGY (European Commission), Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Energy Environment Agency and Energijos Skirstymo Operatorius (ESO) we will organise a policy session on 27 September as part of the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) Policy Conference to unveil and discuss potentials of Local Energy Systems to accelerate the digitalization of Europe’s energy transition.
The session will take place Online and in Brussels
On 27 September 2022, 14:30-16:00 CET
The objectives of the session are threefold:
Moderation: Andreas Corusa, JPP SES Knowledge Community, (B.A.U.M. Consult GmbH, Germany)
14:30 Introduction to the session and involvement of audience
14:40 Key note: Building a shared vision and pathway between the energy and digital players for digitalising the energy system: the Digitalisation of Energy Action Plan and the Digital Innovation Hubs (Giulia Serra, DG ENER, Yves Paindaveine, DG CNCT, European Commission)
14:55 Panel discussion: Activities and expectations towards digitalising the energy transition with the help of Local Energy Systems (with interactive involvement of audience)
In their framework for the establishment of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), DG ENERGY and DG CONNECT jointly organize the process to gather national, regional and local energy and digital players to support investments, skills and expertise of strategic digital technologies in the energy system, from innovation to deployment. Beyond greening and stabilizing energy supply, the digitalisation of the energy system shall boost the EU competitiveness and open new global markets for innovations made by SMEs. This is a key purpose of the innovation platform that the EC is about to establish. But while many SMEs act globally, they also know well the needs in their regional ecosystems. This session wants to unveil potentials to exploit the experiences and networks of involved SMEs, their associations, local and regional business development centres and last not least the local and regional governmental institutions.
