Smart Grid and Future Energy Distribution Summit

3 – 4 June, 2021

A smarter electric grid works to strengthen our nation’s economy, environment, security and independence.

Smart-grid technologies can handle the more complex power flows of the modern grid. They allow direct participation by consumers, accommodate all types of generation and storage options, enable new products, services, and markets, provide power quality for the digital economy, optimize asset utilization and operational efficiency, anticipate and respond to system disturbances, and operate resiliently against attack and natural disaster.

The future of the grid depends on technological advances and how energy providers adapt to the changing market.

Big data, advanced analytics and IoT technologies (Internet of Things) are essential technology drivers in smart grids whereby analytics shift to the edge, as in edge computing.

The event discussed the key trends and future challenges in the implementation of smart grid, facilities for the workforce training and education of the Smart Grid, scalability for Smart Infrastructure System, monitoring and control of power quality in Smart Grids, IoT and cloud-based solutions, security, flexibility, and more.

Our attendies had the opportunity to network with experts in the field while learning and sharing their experience.

Key topics were discussed:

· Towards the “flexy” distribution grid: Embedding flexibilities across the value chain

· Key Trends and Challenges for the Smart Grid Market

· Role of blockchain based decentralized identifier to enable market participation of decentralized asset

· Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution and the dual utilisation of infrastructure

· Scalability for Smart Infrastructure System in Smart Grid State-of-the-art metering solutions for utilities and grid managers

· Newest Distribution System Observatory

· The Game of the Electricity Network and the Weather Dependent Renewables

· The role of system operator in building a digital layer on top of the energy infrastructure layer to accelerate the Energy as a Service model

· Systemic innovation for demand-side flexibility solutions in a renewable powered grid

· Cyber Security For Substation Automation Systems

· Electric Vehicles Supporting and Stabilizing the Low Voltage Grid: MEISTER
