Enabling consumer-centric services at scale
In its role as market facilitator, Elia wants to empower consumers to co-create new B2C services with external parties. In this co-creation process, barriers are brought down and the required enablers such as “access to data in a seamless and trusted way” or “the exchange of energy blocks allowing P2P exchanges or energy supply on asset level” are being developed. These ideas sprout during the last Elia Group Hackathon in view of growing into mature products. In this session we will present a specific use case, its enablers and how these actions support the emergence of new B2C services.
