The connection and steering of electricity generation, storing, trading and consumption are topics with growing importance. Background is the Energiewende with its focus on Renewable Energies as well as the development of energy costs. While in Germany, the topic of Smart Grid is still in the discussion and the legal framework still need to be defined, Finland is one of the global forerunners.
Finland offers a unique R&D-Environment with highly innovative companies, a strong energy cluster and a liberal energy market. Two examples with international participating partners are Smart Otaniemi and Åland Smart Energy Platform:
Finland and Finnish companies offer excellent opportunities to German stakeholders to identify and utilize innovative chances in the field of Smart Grid and Smart Energy. This helps to optimize the usage of available energies and to generate cost advantages.
Business Finland, the Finnish-German Trade Gild Hannover (FGTGH) and the Chamber of Commerce Hannover will conduct a workshop offering the opportunity to learn about successful projects in Finland, the Finnish market and to meet innovative Finnish companies.
The workshop targets utilities, public institutions, planning offices and solution providers in the energy sector as well as R&D-institutes.
