Energy transition and Digital transformation: the two facets of the GREEN ENERGY REVOLUTION !
The energy transition, a concept that initially had a mainly ecological connotation, namely reducing CO2 emissions by reducing the production of fossil fuels in favor of renewables, is in the process of profoundly transforming the very profession of the historical players in network management. .
It should indeed be understood that, with renewable energies, it is now a question of moving from a world where energy is produced in large quantities in a constant and predictable manner by a small number of centralized actors to a dual world integrating a large number of dispersed plants. With decentralized production, it is necessary to generate value in a different way, by deploying new customer services, but also to put intelligence in electricity to manage supply / demand balances in real time.
Digital plays an essential transformative role here. Because, to identify and test new business models, it is necessary to capture a lot of consumption data. These will allow the development of new associated services, for example to set up various energy trading applications or energy products / services.
