Digitalization is a catalyst and the key to clean energy transition as it enhances and optimizes development, operation and management of clean energy solutions. Digitalization provides the requisite platform for decarbonization of energy systems through data sharing, analysis as well as demand and supply optimization. It increases productivity, efficiency, safety, security, reliability and sustainability of clean energy solutions. Despite its high relevance, digitalization is yet to be fully mainstreamed and operationalized due to prevailing gaps and barriers on information, infrastructure and skills/knowledge.
There are already innovative attempts by multiple actors including GIZ to fill the gaps and to overcome the barriers for digital transformation in clean energy transition. There is a need for dissemination of knowledge, skills and experiences to a wider audience active in the energy transition. In this backdrop, the Energy Working Group of GIZ’s internal sector network TUEWAS is sharing examples of real experiences from the countries in Asia and the Pacific regarding development and application of innovative digital solutions in the field of clean energy.
