CEDEC and Covenant of Mayors Webinar: Data management and local utilities smart solutions


CEDEC and Covenant of Mayors Webinar

Data management and local utilities smart solutions

23rd October 11.00–12.00

Digitalisation is changing our lives, as energy consumers and as citizens. The smartening of the energy grids and of homes, along with the big amount of data coming from them, represents both an opportunity and a challenge for municipalities, companies, and citizens. On the one side, digitalisation in the energy market optimises operational management for local energy companies, by tackling congestion management and improving communication infrastructures. On the other side, smart networks and data analysis serve the local policy of the municipality, benefit energy consumers and ultimately can improve the life of all citizens through innovative data-based solutions, tailored to the local needs.

This Covenant of Mayors and CEDEC webinar will provide an outlook into how innovative local utilities are working together with municipalities and provide them with digitaised solutions, which optimise their systems and improve the services offered to their citizens.  We will present the case of Milan (Italy), and Thuringia (Germany).
