Delivering the data-driven utility of the future panel, 15 October

Helen will be joining a panel of digital thought leaders to discuss pressing issues for the energy networks such as:

  • What should the network operators be doing (and not doing) with data? What data should the networks be making available to stakeholders and how can they access it?
  • How do we professionalise data science within the Energy sector and engage internal and external stakeholders in it?
  • The potential for unlocking valuable data buried in silos
  • Where is the dividing line for protecting systems from cyber-attack versus exploiting useable data?
