Session Introduction - How to Design a Retail Market in Flux

This session will be looking at regulation, taking a system perspective. Clear is that the retail market is going to look different: New services, new technologies from solar self-generation over batteries and electric vehicles to IoT-driven appliances, new customer interaction, energy flowing bottom up as much as it flows top-down. Not only the activities will change, also the values. The notion of stable kWh prices as the only determinant (alongside grid charges and taxes) will no longer hold. Unless you buy hedging, power prices will be zero at times, but could be significant at scarcity moments.

Session Introduction - Smart Cities & the Energy Transition: Creating a Scenario for Success

Please download the EUWApp at this link to participate in the 2 polls of the Smart City Track:

1) What is the current relationship between the city and its energy utility?

2) What should be the role for the Utilities in the City of the Future?

\In the first session we will layout a scenario for the transformation of the urban energy landscape and the new partnerships this is creating between cities and utilities. In the second session we will look at some practical examples and emerging issues in the development of energy efficiency programmes, intelligent buildings and eco-districts. In the third session, we will look at the feasibility of scaling up and replicating successful projects. Finally, in the fourth session we will explore disruptive trends that offer further challenges and more radical changes in future. I hope you can join us for these important discussions and debates.

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.

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.

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.
