The Utility of the Future: Where Digital and Energy Infrastructure combine
- Apr 30, 2020 7:41 am GMT
Both energy and digitalization are on everybody's minds today. Both play increasingly important roles in our daily lives, yet few realize how interdependent these industries truly are. Digitalization promises to re-align our economy around data and computation, but the digital economy of tomorrow will be built on the shoulders of today’s electrical infrastructure. Fewer still can see the tremendous industrial and societal opportunities when two fundamental requirements of the digital age integrate.
- Both the digital and energy industries are at inflexion points.
- Data centers are a Power-to-Heat resource of the future.
- Convergence creates value through flexibility and electricity services.
- Location synergies expand the opportunity beyond Energy Sector.
- Digital Power will be to the 21st century what Electrical Power was to the 20th century.
- The Utility of the future is the simultaneous provision of electricity and digital power.
- The growth of Energy infrastructure is the blueprint for the growth of Digital infrastructure.
