"Disruptive Decentralization? Energy Markets at a Crossroads"
The 9th Forum for the Management of Renewable Energies, focused on decentralization. Trend in the energy market aim towards small, decentralised units: Homeowners are becoming electricity producers by installing solar systems on the roof. Combined with new possibilities for storing electricity, intelligent control and the spread of electromobility, this is turning the current structure of the electricity market upside down. Experts from all over Europe discussed what these trends mean for traditional large companies, young start-ups and investors. A workshop examined how Swiss SMEs can benefit from the new market opportunities offered by the growth of electric mobility in Asia.
