Digitalization in the Industrial Sector: Implications for Energy, Technology, and Policy

July 18, 2018 • 10:30 am – 12:00 pm EDT

The CSIS Energy & National Security Program and the Technology Policy Program invite you to a discussion with Timothy Lieuwen (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Barbara Humpton (Siemens USA) about the new services and opportunities created for companies and regions as the energy industry continues its trend toward digitalization. 

The session will begin with a presentation by Dr. Lieuwen, who will explain the findings of Georgia Tech's recent study, Industrial Data in Power Generation. The study is the first phase of an ongoing study of industrial data and regional economic development.

Following the presentation, Barbara Humpton will join Dr. Lieuwen to provide perspective on the ecosystem emerging around the digitalization of the energy industry, examining digitalization's potential to simultaneously help increase reliability, decrease cost, and reduce environmental impacts. 

Speakers will also explain the behavioral standards for those firms handling data from the industrial sector, the role policy plays in the regulation of data transparency/ownership, and which actors have the most influence to establish and define values in this emerging sector.
