Session description

This session aims to describe and debate the digital aspects beyond wind, focusing in particular on the integration of wind power in the energy markets and power grids, addressing at the same time the energy management between various sources such as wind, solar, EVs, etc. The focus points should be around the digital solutions that would accelerate the decarbonisation of the energy sector (including electrification of various sectors) and those that would enable grid balancing and energy optimization across the energy sector.
