11-12 JUNE 2018 /// COPENHAGEN
Increasing volatile and decentralized power generation and a surge of absorptive capacity due to less high-power production plants seem to be inevitable characteristics of the future energy outlook. Add to this the millions of new high-draw consumption points being added to the grid in the form of electric vehicles and it is evident why there is an emerging need for energy flexibility both on the demand and supply side of the market. The Energy Flexibility Forum will bring together all major stakeholders to further raise awareness for this challenge and collaboratively explore solutions. The EFF will be the platform for key stakeholders to specify their needs, showcase their solutions, find their renewed roles and collaboratively take on market and regulatory barriers to accelerate the transition towards a flexible energy system. With its state-of-the-art conference agenda and unparalleled networking opportunities the Energy Flexibility Forum taking place on the 11th & 12th of June in Copenhagen will accelerate the transition towards a sustainable energy reality.
