Topical theme carries three perspectives

An intelligent and responsible network looks to the future, creating a strong and energizing tomorrow. In challenging world situations and major transformation, a renewable, timely and secure network is not only vital, but a factor that leads to sustainable solutions as well – all of which are created together. The comprehensive theme brings together three perspectives: reliable network, networks in energy transition and responsibility.

In a reliable network, the roles of security of supply and service, as well as cybersecurity and data security, are paramount. Digitalisation and artificial intelligence, data collection, analysis and utilisation mould the development of networks vigorously. As the industry continues to progress, increasing expertise and meaningful partnerships are gaining in importance. Quality, reliability and durability play a key role in the transformation. With renewable energy sources, the entire electricity transmission system is facing new challenges. Sector integration, EU Green Deal and the management of peak electricity are on the lip. And in the future, how will the interconnection of different forms of energy shape networks? Environmentally friendly and safe network construction and sustainable product manufacturing foster a responsible working environment. The network of the future acts responsibly towards both people and nature.
