Keywords:Artificial Intelligence; Renewable Energy; Energy Demand; Decision Making; Big Data; Energy Digitization
This study focuses on the future of AI in the energy sector, examining how AI can be used to improve efficiency and sustainability in the sector. The study aims to provide a realistic baseline of AI technology that can be used to compare efforts, ambitions, new applications, and challenges around the world. We covered three main topics: (i) how AI is being used in solar and hydrogen power generation; (ii) how AI is being used in supply and demand management control; and (iii) the latest advances in AI technology. In this research we explored how AI techniques outperform traditional models in controllability, energy efficiency optimization, cyber-attack prevention, IoT, big data handling, smart grid, robotics, predictive maintenance control, and computational efficiency. Our study found that AI is becoming an important tool for a new and data-intensive energy industry, which is providing a key magic tool to increase operational performance and efficiency in an increasingly cut-throat environment.
