The HEDGE-IoT project made a significant impact at the Lisbon Energy Summit 2024, held from May 27 to 29 in Lisbon, Portugal. As part of the F6S Innovation booth, HEDGE-IoT joined forces with several other pioneering energy efficiency projects, including TWAIN, i-STENTORE, DigiWind, EXIGENCE, WeForming, 6G-PATH, SNUG EU, and INFERNO. This collaboration underscored the collective efforts of these projects in driving the energy transition forward.

Engaging with Key Stakeholders

The Lisbon Energy Summit provided a premier platform for HEDGE-IoT to engage with key stakeholders in the energy sector. This high-profile event attracted around 2,000 visitors, including ministers, policymakers, project developers, investors, and innovators, all focused on the future of smart energy and technological innovation. For HEDGE-IoT, it was an excellent opportunity to showcase its methodology, objectives, and goals, fostering new relationships and potential collaborations.

Promoting Open Calls and Project Activities

One of the key activities for HEDGE-IoT at the summit was promoting the open calls of the project, as well as other activities, with a focus on our pilots. By engaging directly with stakeholders, HEDGE-IoT aimed to attract more interested parties to participate in and contribute to the project’s development. This phase is crucial for expanding the project’s reach and impact, ensuring a diverse range of inputs and innovations.

Europe’s Leading Energy Transition Event

The Lisbon Energy Summit & Exhibition 2024, recognized as Europe’s leading energy transition event, offered a strategic conference that delved into transitioning the EU’s energy system to one rooted in renewables. Attendees explored various themes across the exhibition’s hydrogen & decarbonisation, climatech, and innovation zones. Here, HEDGE-IoT and its partner projects showcased their solutions and goals aimed at delivering a cleaner, greener energy system.

Commitment to Energy Innovation

HEDGE-IoT’s participation in the summit highlights its commitment to being at the forefront of energy innovation. By connecting with global leaders in new energies and technological advancements, HEDGE-IoT is prepared to contribute significantly to the energy transition. The insights gained during the summit will undoubtedly propel the project’s progress in smart energy.

Accelerating Towards a RES-Based System

By bringing together key stakeholders in green electron and green molecules to a 3-day conference and international exhibition, the Lisbon Energy Summit & Exhibition helps accelerate towards a renewable energy sources (RES)-based system. Developers of solar, wind, green hydrogen, green ammonia, storage solutions, e-fuels, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), and power-to-X presented their latest and most innovative decarbonization solutions to an audience that included RES producers, project developers, independent power producers (IPPs), transmission system operators (TSOs), heavy industry, and transportation (shipping, road, rail) organizations.

Looking Ahead

HEDGE-IoT’s active involvement at the Lisbon Energy Summit 2024 underscores its strategic role in advancing the energy sector’s digital transformation. By fostering collaborative efforts and leveraging cutting-edge IoT solutions, HEDGE-IoT is well-positioned to drive significant advancements in energy efficiency and resilience, contributing to a sustainable energy future.
