Digital technologies are believed to make the whole energy system smarter, more efficient, and reliable and to boost the efficiency and the integration of more renewables into the system. In the future, digital applications might enable district energy systems to fully optimise their plant and network operation while empowering the end consumer. On the other hand, challenges need to be tackled, such as data security and privacy as well as questions about data ownership.
Aim of the webinar is
to set-up the framework for digitalization in district heating,
to present activities and challenges from the industry perspective,
to get an impression of current commercial solutions,
to see results of the latest R&D projects.
The webinar is directed towards:
District heating network operators and energy suppliers
Digitalization solution providers (soft- and hardware, consultancies)
Policy makers, energy authorities and associations
R&D institutes and universities
Date: Thursday, 2nd April 2020, from 10:00 to 14.30 (separated in two blocks)
