Local energy revolution - Powered by the people
Local, efficient and renewable energy solutions have the power to put energy consumers at the centre of the energy transition, allowing them to produce and consume their own clean and affordable heat and electricity. But becoming a prosumer is still hampered by regulatory and market barriers. Tackling these barriers is key to boost access to all innovative local energy solutions. Combined with smart grids, demand response and building efficiency improvements, these decentralised energy solutions will enable a flexible, decarbonised and cost-effective energy system, making the consumers the active beneficiary of the energy transition.
This Energy Day is supported by the PACE project, Pathway to a Competitive European Fuel Cell micro-Cogeneration Market, a project co-funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. It is open to the general public and free of charge.
A micro-Cogeneration exhibition will take place as part of this session, showcasing diverse micro-CHP solutions.
