Leaders to Raise Awareness
“To be appointed co-Chair of a World Economic Forum Energy Utilities community is an honour for me”, commented Francesco Starace after the announcement.
“The community’s work programme for 2016 will focus on the key changes shaping the power industry, including electrification, decentralisation and digitalisation across the value chain. These three main topics are causing deep changes to the electricity sector as the Fourth Industrial Revolution brings about technological advances at a pace that we have never seen before. Through our programme we want to raise awareness of the impact that digitalisation and decentralisation is having on electricity infrastructure”, he added.
Starace has been appointed alongside Schneider Electric CEO and Chairman Jean-Pascal Tricoire as the other co-Chair of the Community.
