The future of energy: how will artificial intelligence impact the energy sector?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) certainly counts among the most important innovations within the technology sphere this decade, and it is expected to have a revolutionary impact across traditional industry sectors. The energy industry is no exception to this, and already AI is being used in applications from managing energy demand to mapping new energy resources. However, as AI rises so do questions about its impact on energy producers’ and suppliers’ business model as well as on consumers, their data and the role AI may play in their daily lives. The Commission strives to transform Europe into a centre of excellence for this burgeoning technology, an EU High-Level Expert Group has been established with the aiming of tackling these questions and setting a Code of Ethics for the use of AI. The High-Level Expert Group is expected to deliver the ethical drat guidelines by the end of the year, with a view for the the Commission to present the final text by March 2019. As we reach this crossroads for the influence of AI within the energy sector, FleishmanHillard is hosting a Briefing Breakfast to encourage an exchange of views between the Commission and private actors with a focus a on how AI will impact the future of the industry.

Join this event, to be held under Chatham House rules, to hear first-hand information on how AI and relevant initiatives will impact your business in the energy sector and to further share your views on these topical issues.
