EU introduces action plan to digitalise Europe's energy sector

To help acheive the objectives set out in the European Green Deal, the European Commison announced its Digitalisation of Energy Action Plan a month ago, calling for "a deep transformation" of EU's energy system. The Action Plan released on 18 October, 2022 sheds light on how new technologies can help improve the efficient use of energy resources, facilitate the integration of renewables into the grid, and save costs for EU consumers and energy companies.

In the coming months and years, the Commission intends to take various steps to boost digital energy services while ensuring an energy-efficient ICT sector, including:

  • helping consumers increase control over their energy use and bills through new digital tools and services, with a strong governance framework for a common European energy data space;
  • controlling the energy consumption of the ICT sector including through an environmental labelling scheme for data centres, an energy label for computers, measures to increase transparency on the energy consumption of telecommunication services and an energy efficiency label for blockchains;
  • strengthening the cybersecurity of energy networks through new legislation including a Network Code for cybersecurity aspects of cross-border electricity flows under the EU Electricity Regulation and Council Recommendation to improve the resilience of critical infrastructures;
