The rapid advancement of digitalization and the increasing adoption of intelligent artificial intelligence systems have left a significant mark on the region. While some industries have managed to evade the sweeping changes brought about by digitalization, the electricity sector has largely remained on the periphery of this transformation. Investments in information technology (IT) within the power sector have been somewhat restrained, with major players primarily focused on expanding their capacity within their respective domains. Nevertheless, this trend is gradually evolving due to rising consumer demand for interactive and intelligent services. There is a discernible shift towards the integration of IT into the electricity sector, which is set to substantially facilitate the deployment of smart grids.
