Coming soon: energy transition stories for the energy consumer

ETIP SNET will soon release a series of short “energy stories” to help citizens understand the value of their active participation in Europe’s energy transition.

It is in everyone’s long term interest to have a rapid and orderly transition towards a cleaner, more sustainable and less carbon intensive energy future. Many projects across Europe are developing the necessary technologies to make Europe’s transition to greener energy as smooth and as easy as possible.

Implementing the ETIP SNET Vision 2050 will require major investments for the large-scale deployment of energy conversion and storage devices, the upgrade and extension of the energy networks, and the use of digital solutions. Researchers, industry and policy makers need to lead the way and lay down the foundations for the transition towards a cleaner energy system.

However, a fundamental player in the new energy system should not be overlooked: the citizen. Only if the citizen adopts the latest technologies being developed will Europe stand a chance of decarbonising the energy system and mitigate the effects of climate change.

The soon to be released “ETIP SNET energy stories” are designed to bring the latest advances 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.

The first 3 stories will be launched in early 2019 on the ETIP SNET website with new ones being released progressively over the course of the next year.
