Flexibility and electromobility are key aspects of the current discussion in Germany. Harald von Heyden, from Agder Energi, was invited to hold the keynote on the experience from Norway. He introduced NODES as enabler for flexibility from E-Mobility and presented the two use cases in Germany and Norway.

After his keynote, Harald participated in a panel discussion together with Stefan Küppers, CEO of the largest German DSO Westnetz and Markus Stötzel from PSI.
