    The global transition toward a lower-carbon energy mix presents energy companies with great opportunities via entirely new businesses stretching across the energy value chain and closer engagement with end-use customers. At the same time, overcoming high costs and increasing regulatory burdens will be critical in quickening the pace of change. Digitalization is proving instrumental in transforming a broad range of industrial sectors. What is needed to deliver digitalization? What role might it play in accelerating and enhancing the energy transition? How can the informational transparency afforded by digitalization improve company nimbleness? How will it optimize expanded energy value chain components? What expectations should we have for digitalization-enabled cost reductions and efficiency improvements in key low-carbon segments that have proven so effective in other industrial sectors? How can digitalization streamline carbon footprint analysis, auditing, and reporting?
