Digitalisation is primed to make a valuable contribution to wind energy at a crucial time for renewables. As the ongoing energy transition triggers an increase in distributed power generation, new data-related challenges are emerging. Constructed around renewables, and with a higher penetration rate of variable power generators, this new distribution-based energy system will rely heavily on innovative digital solutions for increased connectivity and interactivity between the various actors. Integrating variable renewable energy is critical to ensuring a stable system abundant with clean and affordable energy, and digitalisation is essential to this process.
