#CE4EUislands Webinar: The role of DSOs in the energy transition of the islands
In the past two years we have been collaborating with member state and island stakeholders to better understand barriers and opportunities to clean energy transition on the EU islands. Grid constrains are seen as one of the key barriers. While DSOs have a role to ensure security of supply, together with policy markers and regulators they need to find a way to prepare for decarbonisation of islands. Electricity grids need to be upgraded and more flexible to integrate increased share of RES while keeping quality and security of supply. There is no discussion that DSOs play a crucial role in enabling energy transition.
Join us in this 1 hour webinar to hear examples of how DSOs have taken a proactive approach in enabling energy transition of islands. Together we discuss what is the role of DSOs in the future energy systems of decarbonized and sustainable islands.
The webinar takes place online. You will receive the access link shortly before the event.
