As Europe strives for net-zero emissions, clean electrification emerges as the most cost-effective solution to reach that target. The development of open standards is pivotal for driving the twin transition accelerating the green transformation in mobility and energy and opening up for a vibrant ecosystem.

The widespread adoption of digital technologies across key sectors like energy, e-mobility and home/buildings and the creation of new business models are instrumental for the massive integration of renewables, feeding charging stations for electric vehicles with green energy and managing volatility and flexibility in the distribution grid.

The lack of standardization not only complicates the integration of connected energy assets but also gives challenges on (real-time) monitoring and optimization, for example aligning flexibility signals received from the grid operator (e.g. in terms of price signals) with the smart control strategies of a charging point or a heat pump. Asset integration, harmonisation of interfaces and even better striving for open, standardised APIs, data sets and protocols are important in the long run to effectively operate aggregated groups of connected energy assets at the network's edge.

The workshop forms part of the Commission’s strategy on Edge Computing. The event explores means to foster collaboration between different domains and relevant industry stakeholders, the objective is to extract concrete suggestions for the implementation of relevant EU-funded projects and support the implementation of the upcoming Pilots on emerging Smart IoT Platforms and decentralized intelligence (closing 19 March 2024).
