Workshop on Digitization in Power Transmission

Energinet and Center for Electric Power and Energy at DTU invites you to participate in a workshop on digitization of the power transmission infrastructure. We will gather significant resources from utilities, industry and academia to answer the following questions:

• What are the trends within digitization and automation of power transmission?

• How do TSO strategies address digitization?

• What are the possibilities offered by digitization and how will digital technology change the way we plan and operate transmission systems?

• How can the universities research and educations support the development?

Please join us for a one-day session at the premises of our recently inaugurated, state-of-the-art research facilities in PowerLabDK in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark and learn about digital substations, applications of big data in power transmission and strategies, which include digitization in power transmission. Registration:
