Webinar: How can remote sensors and technology contribute to better electricity system planning?



How can technology help achieve access to electricity and enhance reliability of power supply in less developed countries?

What opportunities for improvement do remote sensors of electricity networks, satellite imagery and machine learning approaches provide?

This webinar explored insights from the EEG Applied Research Programme, bringing together leading experts and a live audience to discuss:

  • How can remote sensors and digital technologies help predict electricity demand?

  • What can remote sensors tell us about electricity grid reliability – and why does it matter?

  • What insights do satellite imagery and machine learning tools provide for productive uses of electricity?

  • How do insights from remote monitoring technologies impact decision-making by governments and utilities in sub-Saharan Africa?

  • Can remote sensing technology help improve socio-economic benefits for poor and marginalised people?
