Energy in the Digital Economy: New Technologies and Growth Factors
4 October 2019

In the face of today’s global structural upheavals and technological transformations, digitalization is a driver of accelerated development in the national economy and a factor in increasing its competitiveness on the global stage. The introduction of digital technologies is already changing existing processes in every sector of the economy, leading to increased efficiency and reduced costs. The fuel and energy sector is no exception. The advent of cutting-edge data technologies, machine learning and the Internet of Things is changing the face of the modern energy industry, transforming it into a provider of the ‘energy of the future’. At the same time, economic transition towards a new phase of digital development is placing fundamentally new demands on the energy sector in terms of providing a reliable and accessible energy supply to consumers at a qualitatively new level. Meeting these demands is a top priority when it comes to digitalization in the energy sector. The Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation is currently working on a solution as part of its Digital Energy departmental project, which has brought leading industry players together to pool their efforts and capitalize on the multiplier effects of digitalization. What role does the digital transformation of the fuel and energy sector have to play in the transition to a digital economy? How is the state leading the way in terms of digitalizing energy? What is needed for a comprehensive digital transformation of the entire fuel and energy sector? What steps have already been taken? What are the plans for the immediate future?
