About the summit
Utilities are under pressure across the EMEA region. The economic downturn in many European countries, more difficult conditions on capital and borrowing markets, and most importantly uncertainty about medium- and long-term return on investments are slowing down the smart energy transition. Nevertheless, renewable sources and distributed generation continue to develop, as does investment in grids.
Flexibility will be the ‘new normal’ for utilities and smart technologies are the cornerstone of the transformation across the entire value chain.
