Panel Discussion

Digitalisation and futureproofing are key for networks across the world, but the UK DNOs are steaming ahead with future planning and setting rules and standards for the next 5 years to ensure that targets are met. This session will examine whether the current strategies are fit for purpose, and where they need to get to if not.

  • What does ‘digital’ mean to the networks, and how are they ensuring that their intentions from the RIIO2 strategies translate into real-life benefits?
  • How do networks plan on making digital inclusion work for everyone?
  • What happens to the data they capture through the rollout of sensors, IoT platforms and how will it be used efficiently and ethically?
