Webinar: Digitalization & Energy
Speakers: Dave Turk, George Kamiya, Thibaut Abergel, Jacob Teter, Kira West, Christophe McGlade, Carlos Fernández Alvarez, Brent Wanner, Luis Munuera and Jan Bartoš. From the rise of connected devices at home, to automated industrial production processes and smart mobility, digital technologies are increasingly changing how, where and when energy is consumed. The IEA’s latest report, Digitalization & Energy, is the first-ever comprehensive effort to depict how digital technologies could transform the world’s energy systems. The report examines the impact of digital technologies on energy demand sectors, looks at how energy suppliers can use digital tools to improve operations, and explores the transformational potential of digitalization to help create a highly interconnected energy system. The report also explores the wider policy implications of increasing connectivity and automation, including for energy security, energy access, employment, data ownership, and privacy.
