The energy industry has witnessed significant changes, such as the clean energy transition, digitalization, and the artificial intelligence revolution since the inception of the smart grid concept. Power and energy systems have thus evolved into a multidisciplinary research area encompassing power engineering, information and communication technologies, computer and data science, control and optimization theory, and social sciences. In this context, power systems worldwide have moved beyond the smart grid, transforming in terms of technology, physical structure, and business model. This webinar will discuss current developments, recognize new trends, and collect experiences worldwide, focusing on distribution system digitalization and marketization, renewable energy penetration, and electronic device integration.
