Long Term Investment Intergroup Breakfast Debate - Strategic Investments for the Future of the Grid and for the Grid of the Future

Long Term Investment Intergroup Strategic Investments for the Future of the Grid and for the Grid of the Future2


The distribution networks are at the heart of the financial and strategic industrial issues which must be tackled on an European scale and will mobilise the bulk of the capital available for the networks for considerable amounts. They are the physical location of the energy transition and innovations must emerge from them to be able to meet the challenges posed by the revamp of  the electricity system.

This breakfast-debate on will be the occasion to gather key actors within the energy industry, institutions, academics and public investors to reflect on the best way to approach investments in the energy distribution sector in the context of the energy transition.
