Citizens of Terni meet NOBEL GRID smart energy solutions

NG_Terni event (1)On Wednesday 2nd May, the Municipal Company ASM Terni SpA will organise and host the event called “Citizens meet energy” located at the technological institute “Allievi-Sangallo”. This highly interactive meeting aims at raising awareness of local citizens around the sustainable energy transition and showcasing smart and clean energy solutions developed by NOBEL GRID.

“ASM Terni will inform their local citizens on how the European clean energy transition is undergoing a fundamental transformation from a highly predictable, secure and centralised energy market to a much more dynamic, unpredictable and decentralised environment with millions of active energy citizens. This transition brings along a variety of challenges and opportunities as intermittent and variable renewable power sources are replacing dispatchable and controllable base load generation”, explains Paolo Ricci, Presidente di ASM Terni. 

During this event, tools and solutions for exploiting the full potential of the green and fair energy produced locally, developed under the NOBEL GRID project, will be shown, emphasising their impact in making cities more sustainable.  This event will combine informative sessions with an open and interactive discussion.  A platform will be provided in order for citizens to ask questions and to give feedback and suggestions.

Terni is a pilot site for the project, testing smart energy technologies in the local context. NOBEL GRID (2015-2018) works to provide advanced tools and ICT services to all actors in the Smart Grid to ensure benefits from cheaper prices, more secure and stable grids and clean electricity.

According to Ricci, “the energy tools of NOBEL GRID will provide a better use of the green energy produced locally, especially from PV arrays, avoiding power losses due to the reverse power flow, foster the electric mobility and the associated services and promote new business models, jobs creation and social development in the field of energy for making Terni a smart and green city”.

This workshop is partner event of the EU Green Week 2018 and European Sustainable Energy Week 2018, the biggest annual events on Europe’s environmental and and sustainable development calendars.
