Talk of session: How to Speed up the Energy Transition

Having a look at the energy transition today, we know very well where we are. But in order to find out what is needed to achieve the targets, we need to have a clear picture of what a future system may look like. What is the amount of load, what are the different kinds of generation, and what are the system needs for granting a reliable energy supply. In this session, we will have a look at what the future transmission and distribution systems may look like. We really have to speed up our efforts if we are going to reach our targets! During the panel discussion, key industry stakeholders involved in shaping the energy industry of the future will share their opinions and ideas.
