Servicing the infrastructure of the future

A good part of today’s power infrastructure is already strongly connected to digital platforms and heavily operated and monitored through digital systems. With the infrastructure for the future, the digital share will continue to grow significantly. That will open unprecedented opportunities, for example, by linking up deep data with highly specialized human expertise.   However, the ongoing digitization process also poses new challenges for asset owners, operators, and service providers. That includes questions around data ownership and sharing or regarding the distribution of roles and responsibilities in the value chain.  

In this webinar, we will discuss how digital technologies and data-driven insights enable asset owners, operators and service providers to boost value jointly. We will explore innovative business models for various customer types and address the challenges some players may have today with adapting to such business models or with making use of increased digitally enabled services.
