The smarter E AWARD – Category: Smart Integrated Energy

We will not be able to transform the energy system without smart power grids. This is why EM-Power Europe focusses on the modernization, digitalization and flexibilization of the power grid into a smart grid. The exhibition will present solutions for the integration of prosumers, e-mobility and power-to-heat into the energy system, so that energy flows can be monitored and controlled at all levels of the grid as well as between grid participants. The innovation potential here is vast, a fact which is reflected by the large number of start-ups amongst the exhibitors at EM-Power Europe.

The smarter E AWARD in the category Smart Integrated Energy will give innovative companies the attention they deserve in view of their importance for the energy transition. The panel of judges consisting of renowned international experts will be electing particularly groundbreaking technologies and solutions that enable a future-proof, smart energy system, for the EM-Power AWARD.
