The world faces an urgent challenge. How does it tackle climate change and move to a net-zero emissions energy system while also meeting the growing demand for energy? Technology has a critical role to play and innovation in digital and AI is key to help us make the massive changes needed.

  • Digital technologies can make it possible to design and operate entirely new energy systems at the device, plant and regional scales – transforming the carbon footprint of these industrial processes;
  • they can provide the tools and mechanisms for optimising the energy efficiency of operations and enabling the sharing economy;
  • they can enable more accurate greenhouse gas emissions tracking and transparent reporting across supply chains; and
  • can also enable more effective monitoring of carbon offsets.

Digital technologies impact on the energy transition

Jay Crotts, EVP and CIO, discusses at CERAWeek what role digitalisation might play in accelerating the energy transition.

Can digitalisation and AI accelerate the energy transition?

We now know that the energy system will need to change substantially in the coming decades. But what role will digital technology and AI play? And how do we get there faster?

How can blockchain support the energy transition?

From tracking the source of renewable energy to changing the relationship between how energy is produced and consumed, blockchain has the potential to transform the way companies collaborate and interact to accelerate the development of low-carbon energy.
