The European Commission has organised a conference on sustainable ICT, smart grids and smart cities. The two-day conference was opened by Vice-President Kroes and Commissioner Oettinger. It brought together policy makers and stakeholders such as telecom companies, energy providers, regulators and consumer organisations. It provided a platform for discussing the challenges of deploying smart grids, be they technical, regulatory, financial or linked to public acceptance. The conference investigated how ICT can make our cities greener by an exchange of best practices. It also touched upon the important issue of how to deliver transparent metrics around the positive contribution of ICT to solving our energy and climate problems.
