Scandinavian top experts debate smart energy transition


The response to Smart Utilities Scandinavia has been exceptional, and we are delighted to have attracted some of the most renowned energy experts and key policy & market influencers.

With their fingers firmly on the industry pulse, they will be discussing the region’s hottest issues, such as socio-economic rationale for smart energy, investments and markets, what is next for renewables and how to bring the consumer to the heart of smart grids.
