#PowerOfDigital – Redesigning the Energy Business, 2 October 2018
Digitalisation brings together new types of data, analytics and automation that revolutionise businesses.
In energy, the changes are more far-reaching than in other sectors. Digitalisation allows companies to renew their relationship with customers, moving away from being pure commodity selling entities to becoming providers of bundled services. The potential goes beyond the existing industry: the digitalisation of the power system is necessary to manage the growing shares of renewables, electrify heating and transport - and more generally decarbonise the economy.
#PowerOfDigital will trigger a deep debate on the future of our energy systems, presenting the exciting advances allowing for more efficient business operations, bringing the key players under the spotlight and showing the audacity of the new business models aimed at mitigating climate change. Hosted in Berlin on 2 October 2018, the event will conclude with a competition in which only the most successful business model will survive.
The event will be hosted by Pöyry and will see contributions from:
