FIWARE Energy DAY – Edition 2
Local Energy Communities and Their Contribution to the EU Green Deal
About the Event
The energy industry is shaken by a number of epochal, revolutionary challenges that are forever changing infrastructure, business models, and its technological foundations. One of the key aspects of this revolution is the growth in the role of a new category of stakeholders, generally indicated as “prosumers”, which are building a bridge between the world of energy generation and energy consumption.
With the “Clean Energy Package for All European”, the European Union has formally recognized these new players as “Citizens’ energy communities”, paving the way for the removal of all regulatory barriers impeding their participation in energy marketplaces and opening new opportunities for entities that will be managing the orchestration of the services necessary for the industry to operate in the future.
For the last few years, FIWARE Foundation has been supporting local energy communities, utilities, and energy services providers in pursuing innovation, and with the second edition of the FIWARE Energy DAY, it is aiming to present new achievements and opportunities thanks to a programme featuring world-renowned speakers and experts, showcasing a series of exciting case studies demonstrating how easily local energy communities can develop and integrate new, innovative services in the grid.
