This event is part of the #EUEnergyDays, a key component of the EU Sustainable Energy Week. Energy Days allow both local public and private organisations to promote energy efficiency and clean energy.

The FIWARE Energy Day is a free virtual experience that brings together private and public businesses, academia, and developers to learn about how standards are driving the development and integration of Smart Energy solutions and platforms. Discover how the once direct value chain is now transforming itself into complex ecosystems facilitated through Open Source strategies.

Consumers are becoming prosumers. Supply and demand are optimized in real time and at a very granular level. The need for flexibility has, therefore, grown notably with the innovations of renewable energy resources, batteries, power electronics, electric mobility, blockchain, and rapid digitalization. The FIWARE Energy Day will showcase European projects, global developments, business model innovations with FIWARE.
