Panel Session 1: Energy to enable the transition (interactive platform)
Decentralised production of electricity and gases will require a revolutionary change in how grids that transport this energy are set up and function. A process of digitalisation that will allow a more integrated planning and operation of grid systems in electricity, gas as well as heating and cooling sectors, is needed in order to enable the transition from today’s way of how energy flows to the future ways. Electricity grid systems are most advanced in this aspect, while the grids for new gas fuels (e.g. low carbon fuels and hydrogen) and heating systems are less prepared for this change. The session will focus on: How to increase the share of renewables to match our Green Deal objectives? What digital technologies and innovations do we need to enable a more flexible and efficient handling of clean energy production and consumption for the benefit of the end user? How can the SET Plan help further?
