The presence of participants with contrasted and complementary backgrounds has led to stimulating and inspiring discussions on hot topics such as electricity market design, incentives to foster investments in smart metering, the exploitation of demand's flexibility to support the integration of renewables, etc. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did!
