Artificial intelligence

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly widespread in the energy sector as well – for example, to control electricity grids and advance convergence between the electricity, heating and transport energy sectors.

AI has immense potential to make effective use of the data flows generated by digitisation as a means of coping with the growing complexity of the energy system. At the same time, artificial intelligence is a key technology to improve energy efficiency within the industrial sector.

EnerKI – Using artificial intelligence to optimise the energy system

The term “artificial intelligence” (AI) refers to the application of special algorithms to solve defined problems. Until now, both the public debate and the specialist discussion on the possible use of AI in the energy system have been characterised by uncertainty and a lack of expertise, impeding the use of this important technology for the energy transition. The aim of the “EnerKI – Using artificial intelligence to optimise the energy system” project is to kick-start the discussion and develop specific knowledge for businesses, experts and politicians.

EnerKI Map: Artificial Intelligence in the Energy Sector

Which energy companies and start-ups are already applying AI-technology? At which institutions is the use of AI for the energy transition researched? The constantly updated world map on the use of AI in the energy sector, which has been developed as part of the dena-project EnerKI, provides an overview of relevant actors from research, companies and start-ups. For a differentiated view, the map can be filtered according to organisational forms, application group and field of application in the energy sector.
