The EU energy system is going through increasing decentralisation and decarbonisation processes. In this context digitalisation and access to data are key enablers, as they unlock opportunities for actors across the value chain (i.e. consumers, prosumers, aggregators, mobility service providers, energy communities), providing them with new opportunities. The European Commission, namely DG CNECT and DG ENER, organize this dedicated workshop jointly with the Alliance for the Internet of Things Innovation, ENTSO-E and EIT-INNOENERGY.
The full day workshop on “Data Driven Services for Energy Consumers” will be looking at what is happening at household level. It will aim, in particular, at showcasing relevant projects and how they approach the GDPR requirements, understanding how to engage the consumers in these solutions, hearing the views of the Energy communities on the possibilities opened by the Clean Energy Package, and the role played by IT companies compared to the energy companies in providing these services.
The workshop will end with a panel discussion aimed at investigating the still open questions related the user engagement into energy services.
This event builds on previous seminars organised by the European Commission on blockchain and energy:
