European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe, a three-day event that spotlights every part of the energy ecosystem, is coming to Paris.
From the 12th to the 14th of November, the influencers, disruptors, and innovators in Europe’s energy sector will meet at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles to highlight the strategies and technologies that will deliver their shared vision of a fully integrated and interconnected European energy system.
A packed conference programme will deep dive into the trends and future direction of each aspect of the sector – from generation to grid to end-users – while a bustling exhibition floor will give visitors the opportunity to see the latest technologies first hand, exchange ideas and share knowledge.
Hot topics will include storage and integration, digitalisation, grid edge technologies, and the challenges facing a changing power generation mix.
This unified event offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be at the heart of Europe’s energy transition and join decision-makers and thought-leaders to plan the path to a zero-carbon economy.
A key focus of the show will be the way that the energy industry is embracing digital technologies. In recent years, power and utility companies have realized significant benefits from adopting solutions that involve IoT, big data and analytics.
In the Summit conference sessions, it will address these key questions:
- How do I maintain security in an increasingly connected and digitalised energy system?
- Where is Digitalisation taking us?
- What is the current digital roadmap?
- What kind of problems can be solved by what kind of technologies on a strategic level?
- Which is the most prominent cyber threat?
- Is data in the service of the digital citizen?
There is no doubt that digitalisation is already improving the energy systems in sectors related to safety, productivity, accessibility, and sustainability. With the use of digital technologies, the sector becomes more connected, smarter, more efficient and reliable. Collaboration between the various stakeholders becomes easier with the help of new technologies and the consumer is more and more included in the decision-making process.
In the Digitalisation Hub on the exhibition floor, the event will investigate the nature of these technologies and learn from innovative projects that are in the making, already running or which have finished their cycle, and the secrets of their success (or failure).
Greater efficiencies in the power generation are being won by applying predictive analytics and machine learning to traditional methods of maintenance and optimization for power plants and their equipment, particularly to enable a greater flexibility of operations.
European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe will explore how these IoT-enabled technologies have helped the power and utility sector stay ahead of the game in the European energy transition – and it will also highlight the still-untapped opportunities that can be unlocked.
Another key aspect that will be spotlight by speakers is cybersecurity. As the power and utility sector employs an increasing number of digital solutions, so too does it make itself vulnerable to security incidents, not just from outside hackers but also from unintended incidents caused by employees.
European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe will showcase the latest solutions for the industry, from generation to grid, and also present a number of case studies from experts working within the cybersecurity sector.
