Democratisation

On the Democratisation Hub, the focus will be on successful energy community initiatives, implementing and identifying persistent barriers and how to overcome them and the energy communities' role in the market at a time of rising energy costs are some of the central topics being discussed.

Key sessions you can join:

  • Well-functioning flexibility markets and capacity mechanisms
  • Strategies to accelerate local flexibility markets
  • Consumers & flexibility to adjust consumption and generation and integrate renewable energy
  • Technologies enabling efficient energy communities: RES matching, traceability, blockchain and peer-to-peer trading solutions
  • How trading decentralised flex is developing

Join discussions with inspiring leaders and experienced professionals working on establishing energy communities in Europe and around the globe. Learn how to enable decentralised local flexibility markets and how to organise system efficiency for a just transition.

Decentralisation

On the Decentralisation Hub, we will examine how to optimise decentralised load balancing through the use of locally available resources with a special focus on low voltage networks challenges and the potential to create a real market.

Key sessions you can join:

  • Challenges around stabilising the decentralised grid using grid planning and collecting data
  • Demand-side flexibility for grid stabilisation
  • Decentralised load balancing
  • Stabilising the Decentralised Grid

Participate in exciting sessions where burning questions will be asked and answered around how to maximise value from Decentralisation. Deep dive into the vital investment question through the perspective of a variety of experts and a close look into the regional approach by interviewing representatives from various parts of Europe.

Digitalisation

Digitalisation is changing the value chain of energy. On the Digitalisation Hub, we will outline the tools available now to achieve net-zero and show you how a strong digitalised system and digital upscaling can be achieved by breaking down the barriers.

Key sessions you can join:

  • How blockchain can be utilised as a platform to effectively document green renewable generation transactions

Data leaders and digital experts will join this hub presenting on the latest trends and developments, participating in Q&A sessions and provocative panels. You learn, develop your digital strategy and validate your plans by hearing from inspiring speakers and panellists.

Decarbonisation

On the Decarbonisation Hub, you will be updated on the practicalities of ensuring the vital decarbonisation of the energy and related sectors.

The focus will be on accelerating the main renewable generation options of wind and solar as well as grid integration, while also examining what role nuclear power and alternative fuels might play.

Key sessions you can join:

  • Green hydrogen strategy and technology
  • Energy storage, carbon capture use and storage.
  • The role of gas-fired generation in a decarbonising sector and how these technologies are evolving
  • Power plant operational flexibility and optimisation will be under the spotlight as well as
  • The strategies open to owners to repurpose existing plant

Enjoy an exciting line-up of today’s industry practitioners who will reveal the ways in which the road to net-zero is being navigated and travailed through a series of presentations, panels, case studies and Q & A’s.
