Free Flow of Energy Data - ESMIG and T&D Europe event at Sustainable Energy Week

FREE FLOW OF ENERGY DATA — EMPOWERING CONSUMERS AND IMPROVING NETWORK MANAGEMENT
Wednesday, 21 June, 18:00 - 19:00, Residence Palace (Brussels)
 
 
The objective of the event is to discuss the barriers and solutions for accessing the energy service market, starting with data generated by smart meters and by the grid itself.
 
The discussion will be guided towards identification of solutions for achieving a free flow of energy data:
 
  • how consumers (and parties designated by consumers) and other smart grid stakeholders (energy service providers) can access commercial data in an easy format, independent of their geographical location and supplier contract
  • how system operators can use the smart meter and beyond the meter data to improve the grid management (outage management, volt/VAR optimization to increase grid efficiency and reduce losses), thus reaching energy efficiency and CO2 reduction targets laid out by the Commission
The event will generate valuable input for the discussion about a common data format and data management as included in the Electricity Directive.
 
Different viewpoints from both the public institutions' side (European Commission and Parliament, national regulators) and from the private side (technology industry as well as commercial, industrial and residential users) will be presented and discussed.
