The Summit

ICT and Data Management

Another theme that is big this year, is about the phenomenon that the utility industry is historically slow to adopt new technologies. That’s not an option anymore in 2016. Utilities are challenged by a changing landscape of doing business. In other markets disruptive companies like Google, AirBnB and Uber enter by effectively using new technologies to gain customers. Disruption happens because the technology maturity level of these companies is higher and they are capable of translating technology in effective business models.

Tue 15 Nov 14:00 to 14:10

Session Introduction - Investing in Technology or Innovation?

Emerging new technologies are disrupting the energy business. Harnessing the power of new technologies requires organisations to change as well. The myth that the utility industry is historically slow to adopt new technologies has to be busted. Disruption is real, but what strategies should utilities adopt to counter this disruption? Change you culture or invest in more technology? First half of this session is on Exponential Organizations, the second half is on Exponential Technologies.

Grid Edge Visibility is Important

  • Customers are choosing to adopt distributed energy resources (DERs) in record numbers and far faster than anticipated.
  • To control and optimize the edge of the grid requires utilities to have visibility or model all the way down to the consumer level.
  • Swings in distributed generation and variations in consumption patterns create information that is vital to the efficient control of the network.

Session Introduction - When Data Streams Become Revenue Streams

Data is the new gold, but where should we start digging? What business models are succesful in both the home IoT and industrial IoT space? What should the industry as a whole do? If new initiatives don’t work with industry standards, progress will probably be incremental. Without a market, no one wins.

Let's Talk Energy Transition

  • Disruption in core infrastructure industries is prevalent and accelerating. The rise of viable substitutes to traditional electric supply, water stress pressuring the water-energy nexus, and natural gas increasingly being viewed as a bridge to greenhouse gas reduction are clear proof points that the energy transition globally is well underway.
  • IBM believes there are three industry imperatives, particularly in the electric business, that emerge from these disruptions: Embrace the role of Energy Integrator, engage customers as individuals and disruptively innovate business processes. 
  • These imperatives drive to a new energy ecosystem and new business models that are emerging globally.

Session Introduction - When Technology Breaks the Rules

Technology is changing and regulation needs to change faster. Who owns the data? Some traditional utilities seem to believe the data of consumers is theirs. If you take the stance that consumers own their own data, their consent will influence market design. Are the regulators equipped to deal with the fast changing technology landscape?
