November 1, 2017

 

Nowadays, the energy system is increasingly linked to the transformations underway in the field of ITC technology; for that reason, speaking of energy implies more and more talking of “digital energy”. The study aims to analyze the future challenges that the energy sector will face in order to manage changes related to ITC technology development, such as cybersecurity, data management, demand side management, dynamic pricing, etc. Indeed, in the short term, at a European as well as global level, investing in all these transformations will be required to ensure the efficiency of the energy system.
