Abstract

Innovation is a key driver of the energy transition cycle nowadays and will help countries in achieving climate targets and in the fight towards decarbonisation in the energy sector. At the same time, through energy conservation and involvement in flexible demand processes, digitalization benefits consumers by reducing energy bills for people and companies. The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the evolution of existing research on the relationship between innovation, digitalisation and the energy sector using bibliometric techniques. Therefore, more than 2300 articles published after 2000 and indexed in the Web of Science database were analysed. The research will be aiming to tackle the keywords and citations connected with the research area mentioned above, to study their spread over time and to relate them with various events that might have triggered a change in focus or interest for academia. Moreover, it will provide as being valuable to analyse a geographical spread of the papers related to author’s affiliation as to observe in time the spread of knowledge for this subject in the world. This work can be valuable to researchers, academia and professionals interested in the topic being studied, helping to find new avenues for study beginning from a scientific literature review which is done in this paper.
