Europe’s Vision for the Energy System of the Future

The session will gather different experts from the energy sector, including RGI, REE, AIB, HyER, Hinicio, Eurelectric, and the Heinrich Boell Foundation to share their vision on how the European Energy System should evolve in the coming 30 years and how they plan to contribute to the success of the EU’s Energy Transition. They will provide perspectives that vary from technical issues such as sector coupling to market focused issues related to energy certification and consumer empowerment to social and environmental challenges, and thus contribute to the definition of Europe’s Vision for the Energy System of the Future. The session will be dynamic and interactive, encouraging the audience to take an active role in challenging the speakers on their visions.

European Technology & Innovation Platforms (ETIPs) have been created by the European Commission to bring together a multitude of stakeholders and experts from the energy sector, and aim at developing research and innovation agendas and roadmaps to support EU’s Energy Transition. The ETIP Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) was established to gather and provide dedicated and overarching advice on strategic issues driving the energy sector, enabling the European countries and regions to converge on national RD&I plans for energy systems research and common funding – together with the EC - of collaborative RD&I projects. The ETIP SNET also aims at fostering knowledge-sharing and best practices at EU and Member States levels, and at sharing its Vision and Roadmap for Research and Innovation with a broad audience.
