Belambra Presqu’île de Giens, France

ECEEE’s biennial Summer Study has established itself as one of the key energy efficiency events in Europe. It delivers comprehensive evidence-based information on energy efficiency and is attended by around 400 participants.

DELTA partner and MD of e7 Energie Markt Klemens Leutgöb gave an insightful presentation on New business models enabling higher flexibility on energy markets. The presentation was based on a paper he co-authored with Christof Amann (e7) and Dimitrios Tzovaras and Dimos Ioannidis (CERTH).

In his presentation, Mr. Leutgöb discussed the expansion of Demand Response (DR) services to small and medium-sized customers / prosumers, digitisation as a main driver to lower transaction cost and the evolution of business models for the provision of DR services.

The paper is available here.
