The world is entering into the "smart everything" age, and energy is no exception. Artificial intelligence (AI) is forming the new platform for tomorrow’s products, services, work environments, and the workforce. Data literacy is becoming an essential cross-cutting skill. Power grids are to be replaced by smart grids where electric generation plants, consumer devices, and storage systems are connected and supply-and-demand analyses are made. To survive in this high-tech environment, the society at large will have to embrace change and acquire new skills associated with society 5.0. The future engineers will have to develop a creative mindset and focus on producing original ideas and inventing new goods and services.
