Making it real: The central role of smartness indicators for Europe’s digital and energy transitions.

29 Nov 2023
Decentralisation Hub (Hall 7.3)
Session: Flex Solutions for the Grid - T&D Panel

European regulators need to develop a limited set of indicators to monitor the development towards a smarter electricity grid. At a time when operators are faced with a need to significantly invest in their networks it is crucial to ensure that the investments of today will deliver a grid that can effectively and efficiently manage increased shares of renewables and a dramatic electrification of demand. How far are regulators in developing these important indicators? How are operators approaching the demand for smarter and more digital grids? This session will bring together policy-makers, regulators, operators and technology providers to map out the next crucial steps.
