Digitalization of Utilities

The digitalization if energy systems is growing with in the energy generation, distribution and transmission arena with integration of technology within all areas of operation. Digital technology is transforming the energy sector (and bringing with it, wide-ranging changes). The IoT promises to digitalize much of the world’s industrial processes, including an overhaul of physical infrastructure in the utilities sector (such as power generation, transmission & distribution). This brings with it both enormous opportunities (operational & societal) and major challenges (interoperability & regulatory).

The session on Digitalization covers aspects of role of AI, customer satisfaction and role of disruption in the current environment.

  • Building quality infrastructure for supporting smart grid goals
  • Are we prepared for complete integration of our physical and digital infrastructures?
  • Big Data, AI and Cloud Computing leading to increased energy efficiency around the utility’s infrastructure
  • Smart systems, smart decisions, smart customers
  • Digital Utility of the Future: capturing opportunities across the entire value chain
  • Energy Disruption as the new normal – Disrupt to evolve
