Subject of Research. The paper presents analysis of the key areas for development of digital energy and smart grids at the current moment and for the next 10 years. We perform a review of modern software and hardware solutions for the implementation of managing integrated information systems for transmission and distribution of electrical power in Russia and throughout the world. We make a survey of international trends in the digitization of power grids and energy markets. The experience of integration of intelligent digital solutions on the sites of large power grid companies is analyzed. The expert evaluation is carried out considering implementation results of integrated information management systems at the facilities of the Unified Energy System of Russia. Method. Comparative analysis of the digitization concepts for national and foreign power grid companies made it possible to identify potential points of growth for the Russian energy sector over the future of 5–10 years. Financial analysis of dynamics investments in the infrastructure of industrial Internet of things on the global and Russian markets points to an increase in the integration of digital technologies not only in the energy sector, but also in health care, mining, industrial production and agriculture. An expert evaluation of pilot operation results for digital energy projects in different countries of the world expands the range of technological innovations in the power industry. Main Results. The ecosystems from suppliers of packet products for digital energy from different countries of the world are compared in the context of the proposed solutions in the areas of digital platforms, analytical services, geolocation systems, transport monitoring, and telemetry. Comparative functionality analysis of digital platforms for smart energy of the largest world and national high-tech companies is made. Practical Relevance. The experience of applying digital transformation technologies for the tasks of power grid companies is structured. The readiness level of power grid enterprises is evaluated for the implementation of digital energy projects in Russia currently and for the next 3 years. The performed analysis points to a greater openness of energy companies to new technologies of the industrial Internet of things against the background of national economy digitization up trend. The growth of interest in packaged solutions and Russian-designed software products is noted.
