The every changing legal and regulatory landscape in Europe is having an ever increasing impact on the telecoms operations of utilities, energy companies and other critical infrastructure organizations. Whether exploring competitive telecom business opportunities, managing new technologies for internal applications, or addressing evolving multinational operations – legal and regulatory issues are growing in importance to all.

To meet this need, European Utilities Telecom Council provides its members with a monthly monitoring newsletter of the latest development in EU affairs affecting their industry. EUTC is also involved in many EU working groups and is regularly called by the European Commission to advise on ICT / Energy issues as the expert association on these matters.This is a key benefit of European membership.

Thematic Network on ICT solutions to enable Smart Distributed Generation

EUTC is also involved in the ICT for Smart Distributed Generation Thematic Network funded by the European Commission.

The general objective of this Thematic Network (TN) is to foster and promote large-scale integration of domestic and distributed micro generation and promote improvements in energy efficiency through the implementation of innovative ICT solutions into local smart power grids.

The TN will bring together key relevant players in the telecommunications and energy sector. They will overview and provide insight of existing and new innovative ICT technologies available for smart distributed generation at domestic level, forecast steps forward that can promote large-scale implementation, identify best technical solutions available, non-technical barriers, as well as to promote all TN results and conclusions as key elements to boost deployment.
