DIGITALIZATION OF SOLAR ENERGY: A PERSPECTIVE
The risky limits of fossil fuel reserves are increasingly increasing the importance of energy in sustainable development. Global energy consumption is expected to increase by 28% by 2040. High economic growth rates of developing countries increase their energy consumption. The changing geographical and economic balances in energy reveal the necessity of producing long-term solutions to the changes in energy markets. Energy policies, green energy and new technologies are emerging as priority issues in the energy market. In the case of predictions, renewable energy will stand out as the fastest growing energy source in the world. The solar energy sector is considered as one of the most important investment in renewable energy resources invested together with government incentives. Intelligent technologies, including the connection of objects to the Internet, storage of big data, cloud computing systems, artificial intelligence (AI) development, virtual reality, and other forms of advanced communication, fundamentally change the operation of businesses and societies. Digitalization of solar energy is an important issue for especially smart cities.
