We are glad to invite you to participate in the launch of the study "Prospection in Energy Digitization in Chile". In this event, representatives from the German and Chilean energy ministries, together with international experts on digitalization will discuss opportunities and gaps for applications for the digital transformation, with a focus on energy and the associated sectors.  The panelists will also engage in a Q&A with the audience. 

Background

The digital revolution is happening in all sectors. Although some applications of digital technologies are more evident to users than others (i.e., smart phone apps), energy is one of the areas that haves benefitted the most by this revolution. The energy sector has seen an expansion in possibilities, transitioning from an industry of traditional services to a highly complex multi-actor system. Today, we hear about renewable energies, smart grids, prosumers, smart cities, and many other terms that could not have been imagined without those technological advancements. Moreover, the energy sector faces the big challenge of moving towards a consumer-centric (or end-user-centric), paradigm.

The energy sector presents an interesting opportunity to create value by combining digital technology, people, and business strategy, as well as reducing carbon emissions through the way we produce and consume electricity, safeguarding the planet for future generations. We hope that digitalization will become a fundamental factor for the energy transition and an enabler of industrial trends related to decarbonization and decentralization. 

 

This study was carried out by the Energy Centre of the University of Chile on behalf of the Ministry of Energy and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in the framework of the Energy Partnership Chile-Alemania, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). 

Key Questions

  • What problems could be solved by the digitalization of the energy sector? 

  • How can digitalization play a role in a sustainable energy transition?  

  • What are the main challenges the digitalization process faces in Chile? 

  • What are the experiences around the world in this matter? 

  • Where are we on our way to accomplish the desired level of digitalization?  

Schedule

  • The seminar will start at 9 AM and will end at 11 AM (Chile). 

  • Summary sheets of the study will be handed to guide the attendees. 

  • Questions from the audience will be collected in the chat and communicated to the moderator dynamically.
