From pipes to platforms

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Thursday, 24 January 2019

Venue: Hotel Bloom

Grids are on the verge of a major transformation along the journey towards the future energy system. The increasing penetration of decentralised renewables, the integration of EV’s and the emergence of new market players such as prosumers and active consumers will usher in a new era. To address these challenges, distribution system operators (DSOs) will need to adapt their current role and transform their model to keep pace with both the transformation of the energy world and changing customer needs.

It is high time to better understand what role and responsibilities DSOs will  embrace, what investments and new business models are needed to facilitate the transition of the DSOs towards a platform model while continuing to ensure high levels of reliability. In partnership with Ernst and Young, Eurelectric has developed a study to map out the solutions for DSOs to take their role in the energy transition and define long term and sustainable strategies.

At the “New DSO Business Models” event, speakers will debate on the results of the study, explore the future value pools for networks  and their regulatory and operational implications. A diversified mix of grid users (utilities, local energy communities, manufacturers, start-ups) will share their expectations on the network of the future. Concrete case studies on innovative services and products developed by DSOs to adapt to this new energy paradigm, but also the barriers that need to be overcome will be discussed.


Confirmed speakers include:

Klaus Dieter Borchardt, Director DG ENER, European Commission

Annika Viklund, Senior Vice President, Vattenfall Distribution

Remko Bos, ,VP CEER and Director Energy Department, Authority for Consumers & Markets, Netherlands

Livio Gallo, Head of Enel Group's Global Infrastructure & Networks Business Line

Knud Pedersen, VP of Ørsted and Chair of Eurelectric Distribution & Market Facilitation Committee
