URBAN ENERGY FORUM 2019

POWER TO THE PEOPLE:
PEER-TO-PEER BUSINESS SOLUTIONS

The Urban Energy Forum 2019 (UEF) brings attention to the new energy economy of the 21st century one day after this year’s internationally attended Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD) during the Berlin Energy Week. The UEF 2019 will focus on the evolution of today’s energy economy, which challenges the status-quo of yesterday’s centralized power models as we shift towards a decentralized energy system that relies on clean, local power. Independent prosumers and distributed peer-to-peer solutions become central to the business models and technologies of tomorrow.

The Urban Energy Forum will unite smart and clean technology experts from Berlin and the international community to deliver an exciting program that will provide insights to the shared energy economy of the future. The innovative technological shift from centralized utilities to peer-to-peer business markets brings with it both barriers and opportunities – all of which will be discussed at Urban Energy Forum 2019.
