The energy sector is undergoing a technological and digital revolution, which has resulted in an explosion of data in volumes never imagined, growing exponentially at an extraordinary speed. This data is the new fuel for creating effective public policies, providing a basis for new business models, helping in decision-making processes, detecting trends, saving costs and time, responding to current problems and, ultimately, powering innovation in the sector. But having access to different sources of data and information is not enough.
