The consumers decide – Pilot DEMO

The ReDREAM approach draws on diverse players, data sources, grid typologies and other factors to set out an energy system in which consumers are encouraged to adopt a new role.

We will apply this approach at four heterogeneous pilot demonstrators in four different countries. They cover a broad range of energy behaviours, consumers and grid typologies. At these demo sites, we will assess the impact of our tools and services and we will validate consumer engagement strategies. In addition, we will be able to test our solutions in distinct regulatory environments and in line with national plans for the energy transition goals for 2030. The overall aim is to ensure ReDREAM is replicable across Europe.
