Western Power Distribution (WPD) has published a new digitalisation commitment describing how it will make innovative use of new technologies and an "open data" policy to deliver lower carbon energy solutions for customers.
Optimising assets, reducing risk and maximising return on investment - the "to do list" of major companies in the energy and water sectors becomes ever longer.
Ofgem and Innovate UK are offering digital innovators £1.9m in funding to develop a software platform that will allow critical components of the flexible, digitised energy market to share data seamlessly.
Electron, National Grid Electricity System Operator, SP Energy Networks and UK Power Networks have joined forces to create a shared register for generation and storage asset data.
Digitalisation sits at the heart of five key recommendations set out by the Energy Data Taskforce that it says will modernise the UK energy system.
