Digitalization ensures the competitive future of companies in energy and circular economy through their whole lifespan

The energy and circular economy industries are on the brink of a new era. Climate change and the scarcity of natural resources have a major impact on investment decisions and strategic choices. Further, alterations in legislation, supervision and people’s attitudes as well as the current digital revolution contribute to the changing world we live in.

As demand grows, companies struggle with new directives and changes in legislation. The goal and objective of changing legislation is to ensure sustainable development and the diversity of the environment. In the future, more and more focus will also be placed on the origin of materials used in energy production as well as the environmental impacts of production and transportation.

The mechanisms of circular economy in particular can help save natural resources, utilize materials as efficiently and sustainably as possible and promote recycling and reusing materials. However, if you want to stay competitive, you should know how to use digitalization to your benefit.

What’s happening in energy and circular economy:


The requirements of legislation and reporting to authorities are becoming more strict

Managing material flows aims at better productivity

The significance of software in critical functions becomes more important

Digitalization creates brand new chances to utilize natural resources in new and sustainable ways. The accelerating digital change has brought us widely-spread sensors, bigger data flows, improving artificial intelligence, robotics applications, mobile solutions and service platforms. These technologies create completely new business models on every sector, helping companies optimize, automate and totally change pretty much every part of their business. In this way, we can create significant savings in the consumption of energy and materials.                                                                       Confederation of Finnish Industries (EK),
