17.03.2021 | FEVER participated in a new virtual format used by 2021 IEEE Smart Grid for Smart Cities (SG4SC) conference.
Since all face-to-face events are suspended, SG4SC chose an innovative approach to try and make up for the missing networking and dissemination opportunities. Besides the main programme with several tech sessions on current topics in the smart grid area, the event featured an online venue where projects funded by the European Commission could present themselves. The FEVER booth was open from 17-23 March 2021 in good neighbourhood to several other H2020 projects like Platone, edgeFLEX, Asset and Interconnect. The virtual project zone was organised as a separate space with booths adapted to the projects’ corporate identities featuring information material such as presentations, graphics, videos, social media channels etc. Visitors with remaining questions had the possibility to contact consortium members of the different projects for a live chat or video call during the conference.
The IEEE gathers experts from the energy, telecommunications, and computing sectors to address transformation challenges and opportunities. Worldwide, the convergence of data and energy infrastructures is used to enable a better life for the citizens in smart cities. Smart grids show to be a real enabler of such cities, by integrating a high penetration of renewable energy, facilitating electric transport, allowing smart buildings and increasing the involvement of the end-user in the energy scene; altogether creating a sustainable lifestyle for the eco-aware 21st century citizen.
