ETIP SNET launches Energy Stories

14/01/2019

The European Technology and Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) is launching a series of short stories on successful energy transition technologies to inform citizens and facilitate their involvement in the European energy system of the future.

As ETIP SNET Chairman Nikos Hatziargyriou said:

“It is citizens that have the potential to play a key role in Europe’s energy transition and change the course of current climate change trends. Informed of the latest technological developments, (citizens) have the power to shape their energy behaviour (or profile) so that they will not only meet their energy needs in a more efficient and cost-effective way, but also determine the greening of the energy system as a whole.”

The “ETIP SNET Energy Stories” are designed to bring successful applications in energy transition technologies, often developed through public funding, closer to the citizen, highlighting whenever possible the direct benefits of the latest technologies to the energy consumer.
