Datel attends the World Energy Congress in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, September 9 -12
Running since 1924, the triennial World Energy Congress is the World Energy Council’s global flagship event that enables dialogue among Ministers, CEOs and industry experts on critical developments in the energy sector.
Big Data can be very useful in the energy sector. Datelś Early warning system uses data from the European Union’s satellites and can detect the shifts and subsidence of energy sector infrastructure — such as pipelines, mines, dams and different types of power plants — with a precision of up to 1 millimeter. This innovative service helps prevent accidents caused by deterioration of infrastructure and, thus, contributes to the public’s general safety. Early warning system is already in use in the nuclear and hydropower industries in different parts of the world.
CEO of Datel, Urmas Kõlli, attended at World Energy Council Estonia event.
On June 13, 2019, World Energy Council Estonia organized a high-level event on the topic of energy and IT developments. World Energy Council Estonia brought leaders of the energy and IT sectors together in Tallinn for the event called “Estonia: Data Is the New Oil.” The event was focused on using modern technology and IT solutions in the energy sector. How to best exploit different types of data, regularly collected by the energy companies, was the central theme. Estonia is globally known as the front runner in digital solutions. Digitalization also extends to the Estonian electricity market. In fact, Estonia is the first country in the European Union to have full remote reading capabilities and a central data hub where hourly consumption data relating to each client is stored.

TalTech Student Satellite "Koit" is out in space!
5th July Soyuz-2.1b rocket carrying student satellite Koit launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome.
TalTech student satellite project is being implemented by TalTech and DATEL together. Hämarik, our second student satellite, will launch on September 5.
The mission with which the student satellites will be tasked is primarily surveillance of the Earth using dithering and near-infrared cameras. Rauno Gordon, the head of space science at TalTech, explained that in principle detailed colour pictures can be taken of the Earth from space and that the globe can then be mapped using those images.
