Energy 2.0: Digital technology in the renewable sector

In recent years, Renewable energies have become the protagonists of the energy revolution. The application of the latest technologies related to information and communication (TIC) have promoted the growth and efficiency and automation of the different processes for obtaining and using energy, transforming the industry into an unstoppable force in the fight against climate change and a sustainable future.

Energy 2.0 Digital Technology in the Renewable Sector

The emergence of Renewable Energies and the ICT technological revolution

Climate change and the scarcity of fossil resources have been driving interest in the development of technologies based on renewable energy, such as solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal and biomass, among others. The digital and technological growth focused on the optimization of the renewable industry has opened a wide window of opportunities that has led to accelerated development in the last decade, also increasing investments in the implementation of renewable energy facilities significantly in the Spanish and European territory.

Information and communication technology has advanced by leaps and bounds. Cloud computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence have transformed the way we manage information and control processes. This technological advance has allowed it to effectively integrate into the energy sector and, above all, into the green energy sector.

Energy 2.0 Digital Technology in the Renewable Sector 2

The synergy between renewable energy and ICT has begun a revolutionary growth focused on the way energy is produced and consumed. The following article explores some of the key areas where this collaboration has had a completely positive impact:

Intelligent Power Generation

Solar panels and wind turbines have been equipped with sensors and control systems that collect data in real time on energy production. This allows for more efficient management and optimization of production. At the same time, weather forecasting technology and big data analytics help predict wind and sunlight patterns, improving power generation scheduling.

Advanced Energy Storage

One of the challenges that renewable energies present is their intermittency.. This is where battery and storage technology play a crucial role. On the market we can already find smart batteries, powered by machine learning algorithms that are capable of storing and releasing energy optimally, guaranteeing constant supply even in periods with no sunlight or wind.

Smart Electrical Grids

Traditional electrical grids are progressively transforming into smart grids. Starting with the well-known smart meters, which allow the consumer to track their consumption and adjust their habits to save energy. Electrical networks are also capable of balance supply and demand more efficiently, distributing energy more intelligently and minimizing losses.

Sustainable Mobility

Electric mobility, driven by renewable energy, has become a reality. Also driven by various European policies, electric vehicles (EVs) and smart charging infrastructure are rapidly integrating into our cities. In this area, ICT plays a crucial role in managing EV charging and optimizing sustainable mobility.

Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

Wind farms and solar plants use remote monitoring systems to monitor the performance of their assets. Added to the implementation of digital twins that allow real-time simulation of energy facilities, the data that can be collected allows for predictive maintenance, reducing downtime and operating costs.

A Disruptive Path Towards the Sustainable Future

The integration of computer technologies in the world of renewable energies has not only increased the efficiency and automation of processes, but has also opened new business opportunities and positive synergies of collaboration and employment. The combination of clean energy and advanced technology has boosted innovation and competitiveness of companies opening new opportunities and possibilities towards a technologically sustainable future in which actors from the energy sector dedicated to the generation and transportation of electrical energy and companies dedicated to the creation of software, digitalization and data management are integrated.  

Renewable energy ICT

Artificial intelligence systems and programming applied to this sector have boosted performance and efficiency to levels never before imagined., through the optimization of resources and processes related to all the stages of a renewable energy project.

Programming languages like Python, for example, have become essential tools for the management, analysis and optimization of renewable energy systems, since they are capable of improving rapid decision making with high fidelity and automating complex processes and repetitive tasks.

Renewable energy ICT

In practice, programming applied to green energy systems offers many benefits, such as:

  • Monitoring and evaluating facility efficiency through the processing and analysis of large data sets.
  • Modeling of energy systems, from solar panels to wind farms.
  • Automatic simulation of complex systems.
  • Optimization of operations, resource management, problem resolution.
  • Simplified display of results and energy analysis.
  • Automation of monitoring and maintenance of renewable energy systems.

The future and progress of renewable energies is found in the synergy with information and communication technologies. This synergy is currently revolutionizing the way we produce, distribute, store and consume energy and so that you are not left out of this revolution, we tell you to finish, that we currently have places available for the new Professional Master in Renewable Energies, Smart Grids and Electric Mobility, with a completely updated approach and oriented to the latest trends and new renewable technologies, in which we include a complete module especially dedicated to ICT technologies, programming languages, application of artificial intelligence in energy installations and Big Data analysis, among others. Innovative and updated subjects to the requirements of the current and future energy industry.

Join the initiative towards a more sustainable future, collaboration between the digital field and the renewable sector will continue to play a fundamental role in the fight against climate change and in building a cleaner and more efficient world. We invite you to be a participant by registering in this Master.
