Modern society is turning to the concept of Industry 4.0, which changes relationships with stakeholders, the implementation of the compa-ny’s business processes, introduces new products to the market, redistributes the consumption of resources, including energy. The market for the distri-bution and use of energy is also influenced by Industry 4.0. This increases the uncertainty of its development prospects in the middle and long term perspective. To implement strategic planning in the field of energy distribu-tion and use, it is necessary to forecast the processes that will occur in the business community, including those appearing under the influence of In-dustry 4.0. One of the ways to predict the future is to consider spheres of scientific thought that are currently receiving attention of researchers. This determines the relevance of the study. The aim of the study is to review the publication activity of the scientific community on the subject matter, pre-sented in the database of the Russian Science Citation Index, to determine the prospects in managing the distribution and use of energy. The paper shows that in the studies of Industry 4.0, most of the publications are devoted to digital technologies. It is presented that the publication activity in the field of digital technologies grows with exponential dependence. The article iden-tifies the most popular topics of research, which are recommended for the companies engaged in the distribution and use of energy. The article presents a rating of digital research that can be used to analyze the prospects in man-aging the distribution and use of energy.
