The European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe and is organised by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy and the European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA).
DIGITALEUROPE would like to highlight two panels where we will also be participating:
The role of digitalisation in addressing the EU energy crisis
The EU should use the current energy and global warming crises as an opportunity to incentivise the collaboration between the digital and energy sectors. Digital has an enabling potential and is a ‘must-have’ in the fight to reduce emissions, increase energy efficiency and the integration of renewables into the grid. Digital is key to having energy that is not only sustainable, but also affordable and secure, and to empowering consumers by delivering services tailored to their needs.
With this session, we aim at continuing the discussion on the benefits, opportunities, and challenges for the EU in the context of digitalisation as an enabler of sustainable energy.
Powering up SMEs: policy measures and digital tools to support renewables and energy efficiency
How can Europe best support SMEs in tackling the challenges of the energy crisis? This session, co-hosted by European Commission’s Directorate General Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs and the Directorate General for Energy, aims at exploring the current regulatory environment on energy efficiency and uncovering the tools available to empower and support SMEs in their path towards energy resilience.
The panel will touch upon three fundamental areas of the transition towards sustainability, namely (i) the current energy policy regulations and their impacts on SMEs, (ii) the existing practical tools to support SMEs in their green transition and their experiences, and (iii) the digital solutions enabling SME’s green transition.
