Introduction by the Chairperson
The IoT supports the technology and communication required to make “smart grids” smart. In the context of the smart grid, IoT has concrete applications for monitoring electricity generation and demand, enabling ancillary services and smart metering, gauging intelligent power consumption, managing energy efficiency, interoperability between different networks, charging and discharging of electric vehicles. What are the Initiatives with utmost value creation for the user & customer? How to standardize and interoperate? What are the implications of WEB 3.0 and Blockchain for IoT-enabled smart grids? Dive into the latest directives in Europe, the Utilities ambitious strategies and the enabling/emerging technologies.
