The energy transition towards a sustainable society requires significant efforts, in which digitalization plays a crucial role. The energy transition brings about significant changes, and without the use of information and communication technology (ICT), we cannot effectively address these challenges. Digital technology enhances our existing practices and opens up new possibilities. On one hand, this brings advantages, but on the other hand, it also has societal, institutional, and ethical implications.

The Digitalization program focuses on the cross-cutting developments at the intersection of ICT and energy. We examine the major trends and movements that are taking place and consider how we can apply digital technologies in the energy transition. Our goal is to ensure that the future sustainable digital energy system is reliable, affordable, and secure.

Digitalization permeates every sector and pillar on which society is built, including the Energy Innovation NL. We collaborate with TKIs , MMIPs and other intersecting themes on digitalization-related topics.
