Aneo joins Smart Energy Europe - smartEn
The renewable energy company Aneo becomes a new member of the European business association Smart Energy Europe - smartEn.
Brussels-based smartEn gathers European energy players working towards the clean energy transition to a decentralised energy system, based on smart, technological, and consumer-driven energy solutions.
– We are delighted to welcome Aneo to the smartEn community and we look forward to working together towards our shared vision of a digital, decentralised, decarbonised and more resilient energy sector with consumers at its heart, says Michael Villa, Director of smartEn.
A consumer-centric approach
smartEn envisions the active participation of every European in the clean energy transition and by putting consumers at the forefront, aims to eliminate barriers hindering the clean energy transition.
– smartEn is also a gateway to the EU, and for us at Aneo, it is important to be part of it to stay updated and gain insight into what is happening in the EU, says Karen Byskov Lindberg, who is the scientific lead for energy flexibility at Aneo.
Byskov Lindberg is also an associate professor in distributed energy systems at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and works every day to contribute to the energy transition.
– In some areas, we in Norway and the Nordic countries are ahead of the EU in the field of renewable energy, especially regarding digitalization and electrification, while in other areas, it is the opposite. Undoubtedly, smartEn is an important network for us to be in, says Byskov Lindberg.
The smartEn network has members from all over Europe, including many large multinational companies. Several Norwegian companies are currently members, including DNV, Tibber, and Nodes.
