Beyond IoT — “Ener­gy as a Ser­vice” as key to the mass mar­ket

Euro­pean Util­i­ty Week//12 – 14 Novem­ber 2019//Paris//Kiwigrid spon­sor and IoT expert

Paris, Novem­ber 2019: Around 18,000 trade vis­i­tors and 800 exhibitors from all over the world went to Paris for the Euro­pean Util­i­ty Week & POW­ER­GEN Europe 2019 in Paris to catch up with the lat­est trends of the glob­al ener­gy sys­tem trans­for­ma­tion. Kiwigrid was one of the spon­sors of the lead­ing trade fair for inno­v­a­tive solu­tions in the ener­gy indus­try and explained in a hub ses­sion why IoT alone can­not be regard­ed as a busi­ness mod­el for the new ener­gy world.

One indus­try, one ques­tion: Where do we stand today and how (quick­ly) can we con­tin­ue? The ener­gy sec­tor is cur­rent­ly under­go­ing a trans­for­ma­tion towards a ful­ly sus­tain­able ener­gy world. Key issues include e-mobil­i­ty, smart ener­gy con­cepts from renew­able sources and trans­ac­tive grids. The pos­si­bil­i­ties for devel­op­ment are almost end­less and some­times dif­fuse. The Euro­pean Util­i­ty Week (EUW) is a rec­og­nized trend­set­ter in the indus­try. Over three days, vis­i­tors will be pre­sent­ed with ground­break­ing ener­gy solu­tions along the entire val­ue chain, from intel­li­gent net­works to smart cities and intel­li­gent homes. Kiwigrid is posi­tion­ing itself in the field as a provider of a holis­tic IoT plat­form for sus­tain­able ener­gy and e-mobil­i­ty con­cepts. The main idea is to link rel­e­vant tech­nolo­gies and busi­ness mod­els for ener­gy, heat and e-mobil­i­ty com­pre­hen­sive­ly. IoT alone can only be the foun­da­tion for that. In the EUW hub ses­sion, Kiwigrid stat­ed that com­ple­men­tary ener­gy ser­vices are need­ed to bridge the gap to the mass mar­ket and explained the key role of the “Ener­gy as a Ser­vice” mod­el.

Next year, EUW & POW­ER­GEN Europe will be appear­ing for the first time in Milan as the new, uni­form “Enlit” brand. Increas­ing num­bers of vis­i­tors and exhibitors are expect­ed.

You don´t want to wait for next year’s event in Milan to dis­cuss the chal­lenges and solu­tions of the new ener­gy land­scape with an expert? Meet Kiwigrid @ E-World 2020, Essen (Ger­many), 11 — 13 Feb­ru­ary 2020, Hall 5//Stand 5–606.
