The EUW puts forward IElectrix and its innovative solutions for the energy transition

 

IElectrix was present at the European Utility Week 2019, which took place in Paris from 12 to 14 November 2019. This is a major event for the smart utility sector to showcase expert knowledge and innovative solutions to achieve a low carbon energy transition. During these intensive three days, the project team actively acted to promote objectives and solutions of IElectrix.

First of all, IElectrix had its own booth in the EU projects zone endorsed by the European Commission. People from all over the world (both professional and institutional actors) showed a wide interest in IElectrix and in the business model the project could lead to.

Pierre-Jacques Le Quellec, as project coordinator, presented IElectrix during a hub session and took part in the Bridge initiative panel discussion about “Integrating the energy sector with the buildings, transport and industry sectors”.

In parallel of the European Utility, the European Commission organised the 8th EU-India Smart Grids Workshop to present the new Horizon 2020 call for joint EU-India projects on integrated local energy systems. It was the opportunity to present the IElectrix project to the DG Energy of the European Commission and to the large Indian delegation participating in this workshop.

The next European Utility Week will be a common event with PowerGen Europe through the new name “Enlit” and will take place from 27 to 29 October 2020 in Milan, Italy.
