Keynotes & Plenary Session

The roles and responsibilities of DNOs and DSOs globally are changing, and many are adopting strategies specific to the transition to keep up. With an expected boost of billions of Euros into the industry, to reactivate and accelerate the development of European value chains, where assets will be significantly subsidized (in some countries even given for free), will they be able to connect everything that’s coming at them?

  • Where are the main areas of focus for DSO investments and strategies? – Digitisation programmes, connecting grid-edge technologies and engaging with consumers
  • Upcoming challenges for DSOs around accelerated decarbonization due to the Green Recovery Fund
  • Digitalisation strategies in place to ensure the continued uptake of digital solutions for networks
  • Reviewing market design to provide adequate regulatory framework
