Welcome to Face the Facts – the new current affairs podcast from DNV GL Talks Energy, where the world’s leading energy experts share their insights on the most important global news stories about the energy transition.
The energy transition is picking up pace, with up to 80 per cent of global electricity expected to be generated from renewable sources by 2050.
To support this goal, energy businesses are increasingly considering the impact digital technologies can have on generation, with known use cases seen in forecasting and planning, operations, metering and demand management, to name just a few.
In this episode, Michael Wilkinson, Global Segment Leader – Energy Digitalization at DNV GL, explores how digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and advanced analytics can streamline the move towards a decentralized and decarbonized energy system.
In recent news, a significant power outage was recorded in the UK, as two of National Grid’s large power generators, a gas-fired power station and an offshore wind farm failed simultaneously and left nearly one million people without electricity.
With more work required to ensure that energy businesses fully embrace the opportunities digital technologies have to offer, it’s time to face the facts.
