Digital Energy Week: Learnings from Energy Data for Energy Digitalisation Taskforce

Published: 3 June 2021

Two years on from the publication of the Energy Data Taskforce report A Strategy for a Modern Digitalised Energy System, we look back on the progress so far. In this webinar we will discuss the 5 original recommendations, action that has been taken across the sector and consider if the original objectives have been achieved.

We will present next steps for each recommendation and consider how the work of the Energy Digitalisation Taskforce can enhance and accelerate the progress that has been made so far.


The Energy Data Taskforce (EDTF) was commissioned by the UK Government, Ofgem and Innovate UK to develop an integrated data and digital strategy that helps unlock the opportunities of a modern, decarbonised and decentralised Energy System for the benefit of consumers.

Run by the Energy Systems Catapult and chaired by Laura Sandys, the EDTF delivered a strategy for a ‘Modern, Digitalised Energy System’ centred around two key principles:

  1. Filling in the data gaps through requiring new and better-quality data
  2. Maximising its value by embedding the presumption that data is open

A new Energy Digitalisation Taskforce (EDiT) was launched by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, in partnership with Ofgem and Innovate UK last month, to continue the Government’s focus on modernising the energy system to unlock flexibility and drive clean growth towards net zero emissions by 2050.

EDiT will consider the market design, digital architecture and governance of a modern digitalised energy system and follows the highly influential Energy Data Taskforce which initiated a wave of energy data activity across government, the regulator and industry
