Electron
JoJo square

Jo-Jo is the CEO and Co-founder of Electron, an energy technology company unlocking value in decarbonising energy systems by enabling granular, market-based interactions.

She started her energy career in the early days of the renewable build-out on the asset financing side before transitioning into Cleantech VC. In 2015 she joined the international strategy consultancy firm McKinsey & Co, where she focused on digital transformation. Here, she understood that the full decarbonization and transformation of the energy sector will not happen without new, shared digital infrastructure and marketplaces that incentivize cooperation. This provided the basis on which Electron was founded.

 

She is a frequent keynote speaker at energy and technology events, sits on advisory boards for several UK utilities on digital transformation and community trading models and writes for national publications on these topics.

Making Room for Digital Market Design

This session will cover how the requirements of market design for a digital energy sector are changing, new markets are forming and sometimes the old ones simply aren’t fit for purpose. How should the sector rethink energy markets?

  • How are regulators and those setting market rules thinking ahead to accommodate the necessary changes and enabling new regulatory design?
  • Local energy markets and their role in the new market design
  • Finding a way to decarbonise flexibility markets whilst enabling and encouraging active consumer participation at the same time
  • Digital platforms emerging to streamline and enable new market designs, and help with flexibility management
  • What is standing in the way of growth and what will it take to scale to full potential?
