IO.Energy ecosystem enters its second phase and plans to test new energy services
The first sandboxing phase of the Internet of Energy (IO.Energy) project came to an end on Friday 9 October and was marked by an event attended by Thomas Dermine, the new State Secretary for Scientific Policy, Recovery and Strategic Investments.
Eight pilot projects have been completed and others will be rolled out to explore new opportunities. These pilot projects will then enter a demonstration phase and could ultimately result in new products or services with the potential to truly shake up the energy landscape.
- IO.Energy is facilitated by Belgium’s electricity system operators
- The ecosystem is open to all market players to allow them to develop the energy services of the future and put consumers more at the heart of the energy system
- The first test phase, which comprised eight pilot projects, is complete
- IO.Energy 2.0 will be launched in early 2021
