Energy Revolution Europe

Energy Revolution implies a more flexible grid. New tech to tuckle that challenge has been developed and is continuously under development. The new role of TSOs and DSOs and their relationship with aggregation is focused on. From microgrid experiences to upcoming virtual power plants and from prosumers and aggregators to large scale renewables or conventional generators living together in the same ecosystem Energy Revolution represents a natural link with the existing focus on renewable integration and energy storage. The focus on innovation and flexibility shedding light on the renewable energy sources of the future will play a prominent role in the track.

Renewable energy and the impact and possibilities for the e-Mobility infrastructure in Europe

Only renewable energy sources mean green e-Mobility. So the question lies at hand – How to benefit from digitally enhanced renewable energy in such an important applications field, like e-Mobility. The presentation will give an overview about actual challenges and possibilities with Renewable for the e-Mobility infrastructure. Who are the stakeholders and which are the business cases in this new market? What are possible e-Mobility services and how does the system architecture look like. And what is the impact of charging infrastructure on Utilities and energy grid? Expect an Outlook and midterm forecast and a glimpse on E-Mobility Radar.

Enabling the ability to respond to context in real-time, fuelled by a diversity of data

With the ever growing data intensity and data diversity, the Smart Grid requires a rethink of the structure and operational suppleness of its infrastructure and its systems. Instead of collecting data to make long-range plans looking backward. Create a system that is active, dynamic, and secure, with the ability to intelligently react to the distributed resources of micro-grids and two-way power flows using context in real time. We don’t need more data but the right data at the right time.

Generating highly accurate solar installed capacity & location data using satellite imagery

Accurate data on the installed capacity and location of distributed energy is essential for utility companies to operate and innovate in the changing energy landscape. But data that meets ideal requirements for accuracy and granularity is often difficult to accumulate or inaccessible due to the drawbacks in incumbent data collection methods. Sobolt found the answer to the drawbacks in current data collection methods through the technological revolutions in satellite imagery and artificial intelligence. Using high-resolution satellite imagery and a unique imagery analysis framework that combines spectral imaging, machine learning algorithms and statistical methods, Sobolt developed a scalable solution to provide accurate data on the location and capacity of existing solar PV installations.
