DIGITALIZATION OF UTILITIES: BLOCKCHAIN AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Romanian Member Committee
It is essential to understand correctly the characteristics of the current transition period and the future of the energy sector, but there are still many uncertainties, as well as progress vectors for new technologies (Internet of Things, Blockchain, Data AI, electricity storage, innovative transport, etc.). It is useful and exciting to discuss these with industry representatives to clarify how these technologies are applied for the benefit of consumers. At the same time, it is important to understand how these things will transform the three dimensions of energy trilemma and will help identify future solutions. This conference is ambitious to be the first in a series to discuss the implementation modalities and effects of new IT technologies in the energy sector in Romania.
Clarifying the barriers that still lie ahead of new technologies and how to remove them in Romanian.
