European Utility Week Initiate! Taskforce Madis Talmar Eindhoven University of Technology

The fact that people don’t dedicate time and effort to address – or even discover – their energy issues or how the system works, shows how much effort energy companies need to put into consumer engagement.

Energy transition is all about getting the consumer to act in the right way. We should focus on making sure that what is actually happening is more transparent for them, so that is it very clear for the consumer what the options are.

What I expect from Initiate! is to wake up the traditional parties – those who are now in charge of everything – and show them that we can do things differently. That we can make small changes, learn from each other… and maybe invite them to work with us.

I always say that at any given time, there are guys in a control room who would really like to keep up the frequency and keep the lights on – and how we make sure that they can do their jobs is our biggest challenge for the future.

What I really expect from Initiate! is a lively debate between people from the old world and people from the new – this is what we want to achieve: fresh and new ideas.

The citizens need to be at the center of the energy system. The dialogue that we create around them is the most important thing that we can do in order to bring the energy transition forward.

How will the consumer embrace innovation? The consumer sees the energy transition through the lens of climate change, because it was already a big problem and now it’s something that people recognize and want to be part of. So it is this aspect of energy innovation that the consumer will embrace it – and the industry should push it.

Thank you to our Taskforce members!
