Tech innovation is no longer associated only with replacement of paperwork with automated electronic systems. It provides an opportunity to reinvent the ways that energy companies do business, engage their customers and interact with them. Further, it empowers consumers, provides meaningful new choices about how they meet their energy needs and fundamentally changes their relationships with their chosen service providers.
Emerging digital technologies are increasingly being used to help manage the complexity of variable and distributed energy assets, de-risk low carbon energy infrastructure, optimise the system, and support demand management through the creation of new business models and reward structures.
