Imagine that one business could be more sustainable, environmentally friendly, and careful with people’s lives: it cannot be only a thought, a slide on a presentation, but it can and must be a real project for the future of every business. But to realize this transition towards better sustainability it is necessary adequate technological innovation

For decades, the economy has been based on the paradigm of more production-better profit without taking into account the entire ecosystem. Planning a sustainable future means redesigning a business’s final purpose to reduce, or eliminate, the negative impact of industrial processes on the environment and society. 

Digital Technologies for the energy of the future

Among the keywords of sustainability, there is the responsible use of natural resources to preserve the environment and the needs of future generations. According to some estimates, petrochemical, steel, and concrete industries produce the highest carbon emissions, with 52% of global emissions. In this emergency situation, that we are mainly experiencing in Europe, it is difficult to implement a complete transition to renewable energy, but the path is defined. According to a study by Ernst & Young, future energy will be decentralized, decarbonized, and digital

The digital transition is fundamental for an energy future that can be more sustainable. Digitizing a system or a process means making it more efficient. It means monitoring the consumption of energy to estimate volumes and emissions. It means organizing better storage of energy and raw materials and distributing them where it is really needed. 

Digital technologies, like Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, can help reach these goals. They can make the complex energy system more efficient and sustainable. Thanks to smart sensors and machine learning technologies, digital technologies can manage processes, perform predictive maintenance, monitor systems, and collect real-time data to analyze and make the best decisions. 

Digital technologies and security 

Digitizing a system involves a high exchange of data and information, that are essential and sensitive, too. Therefore they require a secure and protected network to share data. Digital solutions, like Blockchain, allow a high level of data security in financial transactions and other sectors. They represent an essential opportunity for data exchange in the energy sector, too. 

Lastly, it is important to observe that digital technologies are not exempt from energy consumption and they have an impact on the environment. The ICT sector, with data centers and internet traffic, requires a share of the global energy demand. If in 2020 this part was around 1-2% of the worldwide energy demand, the sector would grow very fast in the following years. With the growth of services like video streaming, the need for energy will grow consequently.
