Innovative DSOs in a decentralised energy system

Start/Stop Date:
12 Apr 2016
Sheraton hotel, Place Charles Rogier 3, Brussels @ 9:00 - 13:00 followed by a networking lunch
Focus Areas:
Smart grid technology
Type of Event:

In 2014, the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission estimated that distribution system operators (DSOs) had invested EUR 700m in smart grid technology over the past 10 years. Research and demonstration projects are paying off, allowing DSOs to become central platforms for the energy transition by connecting responsive consumers, renewables and flexibility sources.

These new technologies, though, imply a revised asset base, operating costs and business models. To incentivise such investments and underpin the changing network economics, amendments to the Third Energy Package and national regulation are needed.

The four European associations representing electricity  DSOs -- CEDEC, EDSO for Smart Grids, EURELECTRIC and GEODE -- will debate these issues at an upcoming joint conference.

The debate will be followed by a networking lunch.
