SET x Get Started Energy Network: AI for the integrated energy transition


Dear energy community,

Together with the Get Started Energy Network by bitkom team, we are very pleased to invite you to our next Meetup which will focus on the role of AI start-ups in the integrated energy transition.

In the future, AI algorithms will make a significant contribution to a secure, climate-friendly and cost-efficient energy supply. However, the energy industry must approach the matter strategically, accumulating know-how, developing human resources and devising viable business models. So how do start-ups contribute? What are the challenges and barriers? All this will be discussed with some key experts from the field + start-ups will be invited to pitch their AI solutions.

The Get Started Energy Network by bitkom:
