Digitization: What tools for the energy transition?
Faced with energy dependence and climate change, many countries around the world have been forced to engage in an energy transition process. But beyond the environmental dimension, this transition is accompanied by societal and technological changes.
The digitalization of the energy sector (smartgrids, IoT, blockchain) seems to provide the solutions to facilitate this transition.
✔ Smart grids: have become one of the engines of the energy transition. Indeed, they ensure the adjustment of electricity flows and the maintenance of the balance between production and consumption.
✔ Connected objects (IoT): many digital tools (smart meter, smart switches, etc.) now make it possible to control energy expenditure and thus limit the environmental impact.
✔ Artificial Intelligence (AI): Data collected on consumers now feeds AIs capable of perfecting the customer journey.
✔ The Blockchain: its concept for the Energy sector is simple, sell energy to other consumers by freeing themselves from intermediary providers.
