Formation of energy ecosystem IO.Energy

Cresco acted as lead counsel to Elia, Fluvius and other system operators in the structuring and formation of the IO.Energy Ecosystem.

The IO.Energy Ecosystem is an open innovation ecosystem to share knowledge and boost innovation in the energy world. But also, to create the environment to build, test and learn from new energy applications for consumers and new digital tools for a more efficient system operation

It is an ecosystem built and facilitated by system operators for market parties to develop the energy services of tomorrow. These services, the consequent digital tools and market design elements will be developed in an iterative and progressive approach from ideation to sandboxing, through demonstration towards industrialization.

Cresco has designed the Rules of Engagement for the ecosystem, and plays an active role in structuring the participation of the ecosystem members in the ideation and sandboxing phases for the development of innovative energy services.

More information on the formation can be found here.
