Digitalisation and decentralisation are driving fundamental changes to the energy value chain. 

New players will emerge and existing roles have to be refined, reflecting new ways of generating, trading, transmitting, supplying, distributing or consuming energy. 

Over the coming years, digital technologies are going to transform energy systems and hopefully make them more reliable, more connected, safer, more efficient and, above all, smarter.

During our Digitalisation journey we are going to focus on topics such as the digital citizen and the regulations for tomorrow’s utility, cybersecurity and enabling technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality and of course Blockchain.
