From 14 to 16 June 2023, the ETIP SNET and BRIDGE took part in the EM-Power Europe Conference, the International Exhibition for energy management and integrated energy solutions held every year in Munich. The two European Commission’s initiatives shared a stand with eight BRIDGE projects they facilitated the attendance of and organised a panel session with them.
The EM-Power Europe Conference is part of the wider event, smarter E Europe, the largest European platform for the energy industry. The event is widely attended, with more than 85,000 attendees that took part this year. Within this framework, three other energy exhibitions – Intersolar Europe, ees Europe and Power2Drive Europe – are organised in parallel to EM-Power Europe, providing the framework for exchange between the solar, storage and e-mobility sectors.
The BRIDGE projects that joined the ETIP SNET and BRIDGE were:
The panel session, “The Latest from EU Innovation: BRIDGE Projects, Activities and Outcomes” the ETIIP SNET and BRIDGE organised, saw the participation of all Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe projects. The panel has been divided into two separate breakout sessions moderated respectively by the coordinator Maria Laura Trifiletti and the communication manager, Edoardo Genova. The topics of the two breakouts were:
- Flexibility and retail market options for DSO - Replicable solutions for a cross-sector compliant energy ecosystem;
- Consumer engagement and demand response (including interoperable smart homes and grids) and decarbonising systems in energy and geographical Islands.
In each of them, panellists took part in an interactive discussion along the driving questions, which was later followed by a Q&A session.
