Digital solutions could revolutionise the energy sector. The phenomenal growth of data storage and communication allows improvement in the control of energy supplies and its uses. The digital society is generating new business models with a variety of implications for energy demand, and energy networks themselves are increasingly digitally managed.
The digital sector is itself becoming a significant energy user. Interactions between energy and digital solutions raise important questions over security and privacy.
The 7th Oxford Energy Day ‘Digital Change and Energy’ will focus on these interactions. Bringing together leading researchers from the University of Oxford and external experts, we will examine the implications for consumers, networks and markets.
