How retailers can win while empowering consumers with smart charging and smart heating services
Increasing cost volatility, continuously changing mix of energy production, and constantly growing grid flexibility needs … it matters more than ever before when and how we consume energy, making algorithms the key to a greener future. But how can we build compelling energy management products to consumers already today? What are the real life values of smart charging? How can we connect to and steer the heating and cooling of a home?
Jani Leirimaa from Hiven will present answers to these questions with case examples from the Nordics. Jani will present ways to build value by connecting home appliances over the cloud and steering them in a smarter way – for lowered consumer costs, smaller environmental impact and additional revenue from grid services and portfolio optimization of a retailer. But most importantly, offering consumers compelling and engaging products they actually value.
