workshops session 2021WORKSHOP SESSION I : "ENABLING CONSUMER TO BECOME PROSUMER: A NEW CHALLENGE IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION AGE"
Description: Given that an economy based on fossil energy is no longer competitive, it is of primary importance to make a transition to an energy system based on renewable sources. That implies a global and general rethinking of the energy market, with its transformation from a centralized system to an open system with several production units where the consumer is transformed into a prosumer, that is a consumer who becomes a producer of energy, active on the new market. In the new global regulatory framework, it is pivotal to increase the energy market consumer’s knowledge and awareness about the benefits of the evolution in prosumers.
Helping the energy consumers to become prosumers is an important step to achieve the Agenda ONU 2030 goals and can contribute to contrast climate change. The main goal of the workshop is to realize a Prosumer’s Chart containing a list of barriers and a list of suggestions to remove prosumer’s obstacles and to set up energy communities. The workshop’s objective is to share information on the energy communities and analyse legal, economic, and social difficulties encountered by consumers.
During the workshop all participants (experts, researchers and professionals involved in energy transition) are involved in the discussion through a questionnaire delivered live streamed. The questionnaire will be accessible through a link that will be communicated at the end of the topic presentation. The questionnaire will be useful to encourage the exchange of knowledge, needs and ambitions. The questionnaire is composed of two multiple choice questions and two open-ended questions. In each of the two multiple choice questions all participants can choose one of the options and also insert their own comment in the "other" section. In each of the two open-ended questions participants have the opportunity to express their opinion. The questions are used to obtain information on the knowledge of prosumerism, on the development of the energy communities, on the economic, environmental and social benefits that all consumers will have.
Il will also be useful to collect suggestions from the workshop participants. All the answers will be the basis for the realization of a Prosumer’s Chart. The Prosumer’s Chart will provide the consumer with the necessary knowledge on prosumerism, energy transition and the decentralisation of energy production. The questionnaire will be useful for the exchange of information from the bottom up and promotes the participation of all citizens in energy communities. Partecipation in the questionnaire is voluntary.
