Event Description

Digitalisation is set to empower the electricity sector
 
The digital transformation of the power sector has steadily built more efficient, secure and sustainable electricity systems globally over the past decade. Utilities and energy businesses have introduced digital innovation to optimise processes while new technologies and services continue to disrupt the traditional power sector value chain. The result is an increasingly blurred line between industries, sectors and service pipelines. It is also a fertile ground for innovation and new horizons.
 
Therefore, it is time to explore digitalisation opportunities as a road towards a fundamental reinvention of the energy system, driven by electrification and digitalisation, enabled by untamed technological developments.
 
At DIGITOPIA, speakers will explore the digital future of the electricity system, the scenarios it can power and the tools needed to execute this transformation across and beyond the value chain.
 
A mix of high-level debates and business expert discussions will map the political and regulatory implications which must remain on society’s agenda to ensure that unintended disruptive effects on the security, reliability and affordability of our electricity supply are kept in check. Europe’s specific challenges such as the static development of regulatory frameworks, asynchronous investment strategies and a sectoral approach to digitalisation will be at the core of this debate.
