Digitalisation and Smart Technologies for the Power Sector

  • Content

  • Course details

A large part of the power sector has already been digitalised. The more that generation shifts from centralised thermal systems to decentralised, renewable systems, the greater the potential for applying modern digital tools in system control. Digitalisation is the key technology that makes it possible to organise decentralised networks and thus contribute to decarbonisation while maintaining a high level of security of supply. 

In this course, you will learn why digitalisation is a key driver for building the sustainable power systems of the future and how it can contribute to decarbonisation.  

The course focuses on:

  • The energy economics background of digitalisation of the power sector
  • Opportunities and risks of digitalisation for sustainability and decarbonisation
  • Key technologies
  • Smart generation, transmission and consumption
  • Smart markets and process
  • Risks and cyber security

Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • identify the areas of the power sector which are most affected by digitalisation;
  • assess potential advantages for society, the economy and market participants arising from the digitalisation of the power sector;
  • identify and explain the most important technologies which form the basis for the current digitalisation of the power sector;
  • explain how these technologies can be applied in order to optimise generation, transmission, storage and consumption of electrical power;
  • understand which aspects of digitalisation support decarbonisation and energy efficiency efforts, and which can put these objectives at risk;
  • demonstrate how digital technologies shape existing markets and processes, and how they may create new ones; and
  • describe the risks arising from the increasing digitalisation of the power sector and create counter measures against potential attacks.

This course is suitable for those whom:

  • are involved in the energy sector and want to understand the link between digitalisation and energy; or
  • would like to become well acquainted with current trends in smart grid development.
