Digitalisation is changing the energy world from today into tomorrow. The European energy transition and the digital transition will go hand in hand – and policymakers must think smart and provide solutions for a fully flexible energy system based on zero marginal cost solar power.

Digital solutions are already contributing to a sustainable energy system and will be crucial for the success of the European energy transition as it empowers citizens and offers them new ways of selling, controlling, and gaining revenue from solar smart installations. Digitalisation also contributes to the successful integration of all sectors of the economy, providing solar companies with a whole new world to explore.

The Digitalisation workstream

Digitalisation workstream

The aim of the Digitalisation Workstream is to ensure that the solar sector in Europe takes the opportunities arising from the digitalisation of the energy system. This means promoting data-driven solutions to integrate solar, storage, and other DER devices into the electricity system and unlocking their flexibility potential. At the same time, it means ensuring high levels of cyber security in the face of increasing reliance on data.
SolarPower Europe members in the workstream contribute to solar deployment by supporting the design, development, construction and maintenance of solar power plants.
