The European Commission has closed the feedback period on the Roadmap for an EU Action Plan on Digitalising the Energy Sector, to which 44 stakeholders responded. Now the public consultation round has been opened in which stakeholders fill in a questionnaire to give their opinion on how this upcoming EU Action Plan should look like. The public consultation round is open until 24 January 2022.
The questionnaire consists of around 50 questions, mostly multiple choice with some open questions. The questions are divided into three separate section, the first two sections are meant for all interested parties while the third section is mostly meant for experts who are involved in digitalisation.
The aim of this upcoming Action Plan is to outline how different EU policies and funding instruments will work together to exploit the benefits of the digital transformation of the energy system, while minimising the inherent risks and environmental footprint of the respective digital solutions.
