Digital Transformation in the Energy Sector Forum 2024 26-27-28 JUNE 2024, IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL, Amsterdam, Netherlands Leonardo Hotel Amsterdam Rembrandtpark, Amsterdam
The Digital Transformation in the Energy Sector Forum emphasizes the need for a collaborative approach among EU countries to integrate digital technologies across the entire energy value chain. This integration is crucial for achieving EU political goals, such as the European Green Deal, and adapting to the digital age. The ongoing technological shift to digital systems is expected to enhance connectivity, intelligence, efficiency, reliability, and sustainability in energy systems. Key technologies include ICT, sensors, big data, AI, and the Internet of Things. However, addressing challenges related to privacy, security, safety, and ethical standards, especially in cybersecurity, is essential. It is also important to ensure the environmental efficiency of the ICT sector and to develop future-ready infrastructure with common standards, gigabit networks, and secure clouds. This infrastructure will enable consumers to actively participate in the energy transition and benefit from innovative digital solutions and energy-efficient services.
