Digital technologies are transforming industries around the world, including the energy sector. Many experts and organizations including the International Energy Agency (IEA) believe that digitalization could mark a new era for energy, revolutionizing how energy systems are designed and operated and providing the tools for addressing critical challenges. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) faces its own specific set of energy challenges and digitalization can play a critical role in addressing these challenges and achieving ASEAN’s energy goals. This report is intended to help ASEAN and ASEAN Member States address high-priority power sector challenges through increased digitalization by providing useful digital technology and energy sector context, educational and inspirational success stories, and relevant recommendations.
