Future of Energy (with Fingrid and Liikennevirta)

PLEASE NOTICE: This event is rescheduled for next year! We will announce the new date in the near future.

Welcome to explore the future of energy with us on Thursday 15th of December at 8:30 - 10:00 AM! The event is organized at Kontoret, Kampinkuja 2. 

The event is co-designed with Fingrid Oyj and Liikennevirta Oy. Fingrid takes care of the nation-wide high-voltage electricity transmission grid. Liikennevirta is the company building up the charging stations for electric vehicles.

We will hear two interesting speeches:

THE ENERGY CITIZEN OF 2025
Risto Lindroos, Fingrid

• From the perspective of an ordinary citizen, what does the energy system of the future look like? How does this change the daily life?

• Smart grids are a new service platform creating a distributed and low-carbon energy system. Smart grids allow the customer to take part in the electricity market. Smart grids also increase the reliability of energy delivery, and create new business opportunities.

ELECTRIC CARS AS A PART OF A CARBON-NEUTRAL SOCIETY
Elias Pöyry, Liikennevirta

• Crowdsourced, autonomous, electric: is this what the car of the future looks like?
• Why are the electric cars a huge thing?
• How fast are they spreading, and how popular are they going to be?
• Electric cars and energy citizenship
• Can you charge an electric car in minutes?
• Electric cars and smart energy

After the speeches, we are going to have a little workshop about the themes. See you at Kontoret!
