Agility in energy – Shaping the consumer-centric energy world

Agility is the main quality required for all participants of the energy ecosystem on a pro-active journey towards 3D grids to capitalize on the multitude of opportunities. Agility in energy means openness towards business and technology, transparency in all areas of operation and the right degree of foresightedness to anticipate future developments. This is the foundation for creating suitable business models, investing in the best solutions and finding the right business partners.

 

Energy management for a new era: agile and fully digital.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you in Amsterdam

Cyber Security – A comprehensive approach

Cyber Security – A comprehensive approach

With the ever-increasing cyber threats that are targeted at critical infrastructure, utilities see the need for end-to-end solutions to protect their business and capital. They need to embrace the challenges, proactively considering impacts on operations and require reliable and sustainable solutions for their applications. Siemens provides standards-compliant end-to-end grid security, from product to operation, starting with a holistic cyber security consultancy.

Streamlined Renewable Integration via Siemens-Bentley Partnership

Streamlined Renewable Integration via Siemens-Bentley Partnership

The energy systems as we know them are changing dramatically. What was used to be a static system with large, centralized generation plants is more and more becoming a flexible, intelligent, and distributed system with many different stakeholders. At the same time, infrastructures, buildings, and industrial facilities are increasingly turning into “prosumers” – consumers who also produce energy. This ever growing complexity, however, poses new challenges for the different actors:

  • Power system planners need to incorporate DERs throughout the grid planning & design process
  • Network models must be consolidated and re-used across the utility IT landscape

The 3D Model of Energy: Decarbonization through Decentralization and Digitalization

Speaker

Cedrik Neike, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG

 

Date & Time

Tuesday, October 03, 11.10 – 11.30 a.m.

 

Conference Stream

Plenary Keynote Session

Official Opening Session

 

Abstract

We are on a journey towards a new energy world, a world full of new and exciting opportunities. This transformation is being driven by three global trends: Decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization.

 

The world’s concerns about climate change are shifting the generation landscape to a more well balanced mix of fossil and renewable sources such as wind and solar. The classical energy landscape with a few large power plants and central downstream systems is disappearing. Our ongoing integration of renewables requires a new systemic approach. Millions of small, decentralized generating units require a new form of management and new technologies, such as efficiently linked emerging microgrids. And digitalization is key to technically mastering this new complexity and offering more advanced energy services.

 

But to build a sustainable, affordable and reliable grid we must also embrace a new mindset, called “Agility in energy”.

Session 13: TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION, thinking ahead

Democratizing Energy

 

Abstract

Consumers are playing an increasingly active role in the energy grid, from generation to distribution. They become prosumers. Across Europe, numerous electricity and energy cooperatives have sprung up in the last decade. They range from ideas of total grid-autarchy to securing sustainable, affordable electricity for the community while still relying on back-up power from the grid or tapping new revenue streams. They claim and develop the power to interact with traditional utilities on eye level. Cooperation at all levels will trump centralized control mechanisms and, what’s more, enabling transactions could even become more important than owning assets.

Adding Value with Eco-System Modeling to Ecosystem Development and Formation of PPPs

Abstract

Urbanization together with technological development is changing cities in an unprecedented speed. Smart City paradigm has thrust cities into the middle of an innovation space. These both require the cities to build environments, ecosystems that provide value added to all parties involved:

Large multinationals, start-ups, universities and research institutions and citizens to create even smarter and more sustainable cities. Kari will discuss the attempts City of Tampere has made towards forming these ecosystems and understanding them, work done in collaboration with universities and companies and more recently novel modeling work with Siemens.

From Smart Cities to Digital Urban Platforms

 

Abstract

Both, utilities and cities face competition in a growing extent and mayor challenges like climate change, “Energiewende”, urbanization or rising prices for social welfare.

They have to adopt their strategies and actions in order to fulfil the needs of their customers and their inhabitants. A new framework and a new culture is needed.

Is it the will to cooperate, to open the (past) secrets of business successes for partners fearlessly? Yes! ...referring to the success of the Joint Venture “ASCR” between Siemens und Wiener Stadtwerke.

Session 16: TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION, thinking ahead

Making Digital Transformation in Utilities a Reality

 

Abstract

To continue to meet customers’ needs, utilities must adapt to dramatic changes in the energy sector. These changes are driven by a variety of forces: Decarbonization, Technology & Market Development and Regulatory Environment. Mostly, however, and most importantly for us, the energy sector is being changed by our customers, and their changing needs and expectations. Beyond the underlying requirement to efficiently deliver safe and reliable energy, utilities must serve as trusted partners as our customers’ (large and small, in all sectors)  seek visibility and control of their energy bills, new products and services, and an overall ‘frictionless’ interaction with their utility.

Enabling the Grid of the Future

 

Abstract

The Energy System is in transformation with significantly more Renewable Energy Usage and Focus on Electrical Energy. The Electricity System itself is seeing an increasing share of Renewable and distributed Power Generation. Once passive consumers have turned into Prosumers. The resulting complexity can only be managed with advanced grid control and market integration technologies. Power electronics, energy storage and digitalization are key enablers and drivers of the transformation.

In addition to deploying a security-based solution acting as a gateway to the DCC, NPG has been assessing the security implications of their smart metering activity and considering the organizational, process and technology changes required in order to manage risk and be prepared for breaches. NPG will talk about the benefits of a security audit : oftentimes uncomfortable and hard-work, but an outward-in view on how to best defend data with a view to protecting customers and assuring supply.
