Achieving Cost-Effective Decarbonisation: Target and Measures to Unlock Distributed Flexibility

Thursday, July 22, 2021
10:30 am - 11:15 am
online via livestorm

Webinar by smartEN - Smart Energy Europe | Event Language: English

The clean energy transition has already started. The cost of renewables has significantly decreased in the past decade, their integration in the power system is rising, and EVs and smart buildings are becoming attractive market offers.

Still, for the clean energy transition to be successful, all energy end-users need to have an active role in it. The demand-side flexibility (DSF) potential of consumers should be activated, and digitally-enabled business models are flourishing across Europe to unleash it. However, many regulatory barriers persist, hindering effective price signals and incentives for distributed flexibility to be unlocked.

The Electricity Market Design set the right EU policy framework to overcome them, but would it be enough?

A new publication by smartEn in cooperation with The smarter E outlines new policy options to further valorise DSF's contribution to climate neutrality and develop revenue streams for prosumers. This webinar will present and discuss those options.
