Meeting of Chief Engineers of Electric Grids Digitalization of the Electrical Grid
4 October 2018
17:30—18:45

Today’s need to digitalize the grid is predicated on the transition of production and transport to a single type of energy (electricity); the proliferation of distributed generation across the globe; the creation of microgrids; and the development of electricity and renewable storage devices which a consumer can install themselves, thereby becoming an electricity producer. Digitalization does not only translate to clear benefits to the consumer, but also extra costs borne by grid companies, and the need to change professional training programmes. How will self-operated and self-diagnosable digital electric grids affect reliability, expenses for the chief engineer, and quality of services for the population over the medium term? What needs to be done to ensure the greatest possible effect from digital grids from the very first years of their implementation? Will the rewards of digitalization be greatest in large cities or remote settlements? What competencies will an energy professional require to create, operate and repair digital grids? Should they be IT specialists with knowledge of energy, or energy specialists with knowledge of IT? Is a «digital electrician» required if digital grids can work without a person’s input?
