Energy Conference 2021

Energy is digital

Where do we stand with the digitization of the energy industry and what are the prospects for a successful energy transition?

The digital transformation and the energy transition are currently the central focal points of the energy industry in Germany. For both challenges, it is necessary to develop intelligent technologies that connect all network participants - i.e., generators, suppliers, consumers and network operators - and create the basis for future developments and business models.

Find out about the current state of digitization in the energy industry and join the discussion about exciting impulses for the future! An impressive network of decision-makers and experts from the energy industry, poltitk and research, among others, awaits you: Judith Gerlach, Hubert Aiwanger, Katrin Habenschaden, Andrea Martin, Rainer Sessner, Egon Westphal, Tanja Koch, Oliver Koch, Stephanie von Ahlefeldt, Albrecht Reuter, Jens Strüker, Johannes Hilpert, Xaver Pfab, Nicolas Spengler, Jan Mayer, Andreas Weigand, Melanie Peschel and six successful energy start-ups.
