Is digitization of the energy sector a chance or a threat?

On the second day of the event within the confines of the „Energetyka” blog there will take place panel discussion „Is digitization of the energy sector a chance or a threat?”

Technological trends in the digitization of the energy sector can influence the future shape of the energy markets. For some time, the energy sector see the potential of decentralized registers, i.e. the blockchain or chain of data blocks, for management. Polish power companies are now implementing solutions in the field of IoT (Internet of Things), which measure actual power consumption in real-time and can continuously adjust usage of energy and fees. This solutions are moving away from the standard subscription model. There is a growing potential of solutions that decentralize the energy sector, where the consumer will be a co-producer of energy, a vehicle will be an energy store, household appliances will be an integrated system and power plants will be an emergency power storages powered by wind and sun. For today this is just a future model that everyone will consistently strive for. What are the chances and challenges that digitization pose to the Polish energy sector in the next decade?
