The modernisation of the grid as well as securing valuable energy resources are required from the Utilities to meet the City's development needs. How are the utilities working with Digital Energy Management to match those needs? This session aims at creating a scenario of what the business of a Utility will look like in 5 years from now, in the context of a Smart City.

Session Introduction - Smart Cities & the Energy Transition: Creating a Scenario for Success

Please download the EUWApp at this link to participate in the 2 polls of the Smart City Track:

1) What is the current relationship between the city and its energy utility?

2) What should be the role for the Utilities in the City of the Future?

\In the first session we will layout a scenario for the transformation of the urban energy landscape and the new partnerships this is creating between cities and utilities. In the second session we will look at some practical examples and emerging issues in the development of energy efficiency programmes, intelligent buildings and eco-districts. In the third session, we will look at the feasibility of scaling up and replicating successful projects. Finally, in the fourth session we will explore disruptive trends that offer further challenges and more radical changes in future. I hope you can join us for these important discussions and debates.
