14:30 Session 5: Local energy revolution - Powered by the people (EUSEW 2018 session - supported by the PACE project)

Decentralised efficient and renewable energy has the power to put consumers at the centre of the energy transition. Democratising energy will ensure householders and small business can benefit from secure, clean and affordable heat and electricity. While increasingly appealing, becoming a prosumer is still restricted by persistent regulatory and market barriers. Tackling barriers along with reducing product cost will ensure accessibility for all consumers to innovative on-site energy solutions, including small/micro-CHP, PV, heat pumps, solar thermal. Combined with smart grids deployment, demand response and building efficiency improvements, decentralised energy will ensure a flexible, decarbonised and cost-effective energy transition.

This session is organised in the framework of the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2018 and 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. This session is open to the general public and free of charge. Register HERE for this session.
