By increasing the availability and usability of data on the status of the electricity network, it enabled more efficient and secure system operation. It also supported the creation of competitive wholesale markets and their integration at the regional level. More recently, digitalization has expanded its outreach to cover distribution networks and consumers’ premises, allowing a reduction in costs and an improvement in quality of service. It has also laid the basis for the establishment of innovative retail markets which empower final customers and provide opportunities for new entrants, while challenging existing approaches to sector regulationen
