The European energy system is profoundly changing, on the basis of two main trends: decarbonisation and digitalisation. On the one hand, strong decarbonisation policies have reshaped the European energy system, notably incentivising the deployment of renewable energies. On the other hand, technological advancements have allowed the emergence of new digital technologies that change the way energy systems are operated. In this rapidly changing situation, European energy companies need to rethink their business models, in order to survive - and ideally make the best - of the ongoing energy transition. In order to better understand how these companies can evolve in the future, FEEM ‘Energy Scenarios and Policy’ program convened on June 14, 2017 in Milan a closed-door brainstorming workshop gathering leading experts in the field from the industry, the academia and the institutions. This Brief provides a reflected summary of this workshop.
