With decentralization and decarbonization, digitalization is the third “D” describing the current global energy transition. Using the campus as a network laboratory, EPFL researchers are developing new technologies to control and stabilize the electrical network. For example, the digitization of hydroelectric power production is the subject of major international and interdisciplinary projects and of the continent’s energy system.
