Net-zero - The role of Artificial Intelligence and Data in energy
Date: Thursday 12 December 2019
Location: Energy UK Offices, 26 Finsbury Square (1st Floor), London EC2A 1DS
As the UK moves towards net zero and the energy system continues to evolve to incorporate distributed energy resources including low carbon generation and demand side flexibility, the visibility of data and the ability to accurately and efficiently utilise that information will be areas of high potential for the UK. Following on from an industry support for an International Centre for AI, Energy and Climate, Energy UK welcomes you to join us for a discussion of the next steps in Data and Artificial Intelligence and the ways in which the UK can take advantage of its leading role.
This event will set out the next steps for Data following the Energy Data Taskforce recommendations and the potential apparent in developing AI capabilities to reduce emissions and costs. The panel is expected to touch upon the shifting needs of the system and those it serves, barriers and potential benefits of enhanced technical capability, practical applications of AI in energy, the role of industry, regulator and government, and the ways in which energy and technology can continue to merge effectively.
