Framework and Issues
Technological advancements in the various areas of digitalization are rapidly affecting all aspects of the energy industry, expectedly to the benefit of consumers and the environment. For these benefits to materialize, appropriate regulation will be necessary, even though it is not yet fully clear what the focus and the scope of this regulation will look like. In the context of the environmental challenge, the issue of digitalizing energy markets will become ever more important, as it is expected to foster energy efficiency and support the transition towards cleaner sources of energy.
The ERRA Digitalization Workshop, set to take place on October 24-25 in Istanbul, will discuss technological advancements and disruptions in the various areas of digitalization and the opportunities and the challenges these bring to the energy sector. Organized jointly with WEC Turkey and IC4R (Istanbul Center for Regulation), the workshop will explore sector-specific and cross-sectoral regulatory policy options. Discussions will also include questions of cybersecurity, access to data, and privacy. Specific case studies, such as smart grids, will provide a direct insight into the practical applications of digitalization.
