EUSEW 2017- New Business Models Empowering Energy Consumers
Don't miss the opportunity to take part in a stimulating debate about the future of the energy system and role of heat and power in Europe!
FCH JU key projects ene.field and Pace will be featured as part of the session named "What innovative business models empower consumers in the energy transition” in the frame of the Policy Conference during the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2017 (EUSEW17) in Brussels.The session will take place on 21st June 2017 at 18:00 and will focus on the role of active energy consumers, contributing to the energy transition through innovative energy technologies and will draw on key findings from EU funded projects ene.field and PACE.
Distributed generation energy solutions, including fuel cells and micro-cogeneration, put consumers at the centre of energy transition. Micro-Cogeneration, or micro-CHP, enable end users to reduce energy consumption, integrate intermittent renewables and significantly decrease CO2 as well as pollutant emissions. Nevertheless, the often high capital costs of these products represent a barrier for most householders or small businesses, despite the significant end-user and system wide benefits. In this context, new business models, facilitated by the collaboration between industry, public authorities, new market players, decision-makers and research institutes, will incentivise consumers to adopt innovative energy technologies. The current critical debate in the European Parliament and Council over the recently published Clean Energy for All Europeans Package makes this a key topic of interest.
