5G and energy transition: a webinar by CESI and Elettricità Futura
13 . Apr . 2021

On Tuesday, April 27th (from 10:30am to 12:00pm, CEST) “5G and advanced connectivity for the energy transition”, the webinar organized by CESI and Elettricità Futura, will take place. This is the first appointment in Elettricità Futura's "Technology Watch", a format organized in partnership with CESI and aimed at monitoring the main global technology trends that will impact the energy sector.

In the webinar “5G and advanced connectivity for the energy transition”, the protagonists of the electric and ICT sectors will discuss the technological opportunities related to digitalization, with focus on 5G and advanced connectivity, in order to analyze their role in achieving the 2030 Green Deal targets and the implementation of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR).

Following a brief introduction by the CESI Group CEO (Matteo Codazzi) and the Elettricità Futura President (Agostino Re Rebaudengo), 5G technology will be described from the perspective of the energy sector by Gianluca Marini (Executive Vice President Consulting Division – CESI).

Consequently, the discussion amongst the protagonists of the electric and ICT sectors will ensue: a roundtable that will feature Davide Piccagli (Automation & Innovative Solutions Product Leader – CESI), Stefano Regaglia (Head of Engineering Services in Infrastructure and Technological Services, Global ICT – Enel) and Maurizio Salvaderi (Cloud First Sales & Solution and IX Tech Lead – Accenture).

The Italian Minister for technological innovation and digital transition, Vittorio Colao, has been invited for the closing remarks.

In the webinar, you will be able to see how new digital technologies and innovation, by changing the way electricity is produced, transported and consumed, will play a key role in the energy transition process. For this reason, digitalization will be one of the pillars of Green Recovery with at least 20% of the funds of the PNRR that must be allocated to the development of digital infrastructures and skills. In this context, it will be crucial to fully exploit digital technologies such as 5G and advanced connectivity. In particular, 5G will be able to help utilities to timely collect data, allowing optimized management of plants, networks and consumption and thus allowing them to accommodate increasing shares of renewable energy and distributed generation. In addition, the large bandwidth of 5G will ensure very fast response times for utilities and the enhancement of maintenance and monitoring of networks, guaranteeing ever greater resilience.

At the end of the event, you will be able to ask questions to the experts in the Q&A section.
