Abstract: The study addressed broad aspects related to digital technology platforms and renewable energy sources, including the integration of these systems and concepts. The main objective was to identify the implementation environment for a digital technology platform of renewable energy sources (RES) based on business and consumer feedback. This gives an insight into whether there is a favourable environment for implementing a RES digital technology platform. The study was based on research carried out using computer-assisted telephone interview (CATI) and computer-assisted web interview (CAWI) methods. Additionally, an alternative model of attitudes towards digital technology platforms (DTPs) built using CATREG (categorical regression) analysis was also referred to. The study found that currently, there is a positive attitude among companies, including those which install RES systems, as well as among consumers towards the implementation of DTP-based RES projects. This attitude is driven by the many benefits that can be achieved by using these platforms. However, there are some obstacles to the implementation of a digital RES platform. These relate to cyber security concerns, including computer or internet failures. However, the obstacles are not crucial for the practical implementation of the discussed platform.
