Join the Frontier of the Energy Transition
The challenge of the energy transition goes way beyond the shift from fossil to renewable energy sources. We are moving from centralized, fossil-fuelled generation towards a decentralized, decarbonized and digitized system of generation and distribution. It requires an immense system transition to successfully integrate all renewables into the grid. Roles of stakeholders will shift, interactions between them will be renewed and completely new players will enter the field. Now, in the age of limitless information and online anonymity, making the right connections and sharing relevant knowledge is more important than ever.
Our brand new Future Grid Labs each take just one afternoon to completely get you up to speed regarding a specific topic, bring you insights from leading case studies and enable you to connect with the relevant stakeholders from the complete ecosystem.
