As we move towards the energy transition the data ecosystems, data landscape is changing so drastically, there is more crucial need for data co-ordination, exchanges and collaboration between different actors of the energy ecosystem to be ahead of the curve and accelerate the energy transition.

The Webinar focused on aspects such as:

  • The Virtual Energy System
  • Unpack the 6 priority factors
  • CIM: Common Information model
  • Role of conformance and Interoperability testing
  • Conformance testing added value
  • And much more!
