Matteo Pozzi spoke at the ninth international conference on Smart Energy Systems in Copenhagen participating both in the Smart energy infrastructure and storage options session and chairing the Integrated energy systems and smart grids table.
In an edition that surpasses pre-COVID participation, the SES confirms itself as one of the main moments of meeting and exchange within the DHC community. Matteo Pozzi, after participating in the DHC+ Assembly held at the Copenhagen headquarters of Aalborg University on 11 September, presented as Vice Chair of the DHC+ the path and the report on digitalisation, discussing the challenges and progress with market operators of an industry that continues to pursue a constant increase in performance and is faced with increasingly greater difficulties in managing the complexity of multi-energy systems.
By presenting the project and the solution for the optimized development of district heating networks together with Alessandro Capretti of A2A, the case of Milan became an opportunity to share valuable considerations on the involvement of stakeholders in the planning processes of the substantial investments that district heating requires. These tools and methodologies may have their further development in light of European regulations which require all municipalities with more than 45,000 inhabitants to develop Energy and Heat Planning.
As Chair of the session on Integrated energy systems and smart grids, further ideas concerned examples of energy communities in Eastern Europe, the exploitation of geothermal sources, or interesting methodological approaches to support planning processes.
