How is digital becoming an essential lever for the development of renewable energy and grids in the world?
In the previous episode, we discussed digital as a tool to accelerate the development of nuclear energy. Today, we’re going to take a look at the renewable energy market. To respond to the climate emergency, many programmes are under construction or planned. France has set itself the target of achieving 45% of renewable energy in its energy mix by 2030, compared with the current 20%. Globally, renewable electricity capacity is expected to increase by more than 60% between 2020 and 2026, reaching over 4,800 GW, according to the International Energy Agency. The production of electricity from renewable sources is changing the energy market landscape, due to its intermittent nature.
