Look into highlights how different combinations of innovation accelerators might trigger and scale to enable alternative energy pathways and disrupt existing value chains. We will hear about the potential future scenarios in the EU and globally from Priit Mändmaa, Secretary-general World Energy Council Estonia.

What does it actually mean to bring electricity to almost every home and business in the whole country, balancing the financials with customers' satisfaction and policy? Priit Treial, the Member of the Board of Elektrilevi and former CFO of Eesti Energia, will lift the lid for us from managerial decisions and financials behind the upkeep of the national electricity system.

In addition to that, Karl Kull, the coordinator of the SMAGRINET project, will introduce how the SMAGRINET cross-curricular module - Economic Operation and Societal Challenges - can bring us more knowledgable leaders supporting the sustainable development of this crucial sector.
