Future energy systems: prosumer islands or a new fully interconnected community?
24 June 2020
Specifically, we will address the following questions:
- Would prosumers and energy communities prefer to operate within a decentralised or a digitalised energy system? Would it correspond better to their needs, vision, legal and technical possibilities to create “energy islands” or be part of a “global interconnected Internet of Things (IoT)”?
- What features should a preferred system have? How should it be constructed?
- Which conditions (social, economic, technological, ethical, security and data protection, educational and financial) need to change to get there?How do these futures relate to the ongoing transposition of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) into national policies in the EU member states?
