What are the energy networks’ next steps in digital innovation? 12 October

Carolina joins a panel of digital leaders from the gas and electricity networks on this Day One panel. She will also be leading a roundtable discussion group on use cases for digital twins. 

Speaker profile

Anna Carolina Tortora, an Italian/Colombian/Canadian MIT alumna with a background in Aerospace Engineering, currently heads Digital Transformation and Innovation Strategy for National Grid ESO.

Her mission is to foster the modernisation of the UK system by leveraging new tools, grid technologies, and services to play a central role in overcoming the challenges associated with the transition to a zero carbon future.

Prior, Carolina held a similar position in Rome at the Italian TSO, Terna Spa, where she successfully led the deployment of the largest high-voltage connected storage plants (batteries) in Europe, a project that earned Carolina and her company worldwide recognition. Riding on this success, Carolina has coined herself as a “battery-ninja” and is now one the most popular and quoted speakers on the subject of batteries and storage systems combined with renewables in Europe. Carolina is the recipient of numerous honours, including being a featured speaker for 2017 TEDxRome, and being elected as one of Italy’s Top 40 Under 40 Managers in 2016. Carolina splits her time between National Grid ESO, and her husband Luca and their son, Matteo.
