Event | Big data in the energy sector: what are the opportunities?

We live in a world where collecting, using and managing data has become part of our daily life – consciously or unconsciously. In the light of the energy transition, there are many possibilities to leverage data on e.g. solar power production or electricity consumption patterns in households to achieve improved efficiency. The major question that arises is: how can we use big data to accelerate the energy transition?

Our two excellent speakers will shed light on the opportunities big data bring to develop innovative tools that enable an accelerated energy transition. Furthermore, the topic of data security concerns will also be referred to.
