The Digital Energy Transformation
The energy system—our electric grid, transportation infrastructure, and industrial energy production—is undergoing a digital transformation. Ubiquitous connectivity, inexpensive data storage, and faster networks for data transmission have led to exponential growth in energy data. Crosscutting digital tools and platforms are already being deployed to analyze, optimize, and monetize this data in new ways. For the first time, energy consumers—from large industries to small businesses and individual customers—are gaining access to their energy data and driving demand for increased transparency, competition, and choice.
New digital energy concepts and technologies are constantly emerging. Here is EC-MAP’s list of 20 Digital Energy Concepts You Should Know.
