It’s clear that the world witnessed a highly accelerated rate of digitalization in the last year or so. We saw a shift to newer, more agile, and more resilient, remote-friendly environments and faster adoption of “digital” processes almost overnight. How much will we return to “business as usual”? How have energy companies and utilities adapted, and what could be next?

With the travel restrictions in place, remote supervision might play a bigger role in the construction of new sites. Join our speakers to find out how to accelerate digitalization in energy and utilities.
