The decentralization of the energy system is progressing quickly. There’s more solar, more wind, more storage, more micro-grids, and more electric mobility. This creates numerous new opportunities for established and new utility players. The cost of sensors and connectivity (data acquisition) as well as data storage, data governance, and data security is decreasing for both new and existing systems, driven down by innovative technologies like data virtualization. State-of-the art data platform technologies can enable data interoperability that opens up significant new highly secure and trusted value pools. In addition, data processing, analysis, and applications are shifting to devices on the edge of the grid (e.g., for faster processing and decentralized decision-making).
