The evolution of the energy sector over the past 25 years has surpassed every expectation and today, energy forms a key pillar of political and social strategies in many of the world’s economies. What are the milestones that got us where we are today?

This year, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Smart Energy International. Part of celebrating an important happening is taking a moment to reflect on the past. Therefore, our host Claire Volkwyn invited Areti Ntaradimou (Enlit Europe content director for data) and Kevin O’Donovan (technology evangelist) to discuss the important moments from the past 25 years in the energy sector in this episode of the Smart Energy International podcast.
