The 3D Model of Energy: Decarbonisation through Decentralisation and Digitalisation

We are on a journey towards a new energy world, a world full of new and exciting opportunities.  This transformation is being driven by three global trends: Decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization. The world’s concerns about climate change are shifting the generation landscape to a more well balanced mix of fossil and renewable sources such as wind and solar. The classical energy landscape with a few large power plants and central downstream systems is disappearing. Our ongoing integration of renewables requires a new sy stemic approach. Millions of small, decentralized generating units require a new form of management and new technologies, such as efficiently linked emerging microgrids. "Digitalization is the new normal and is driving the Internet of energy with millions of smart and decentralized energy generation units. But to build a sustainable, affordable and reliable grid we must also embrace a new mindset, called “Agility in energy”"

Introduction by the Chairperson

Through a ping pong exchange format we will explore and juxtapose central determinants in the energy market. Is the future electrified or will solutions like efficient cogeneration lead the way? Should energy choices be driven by efficiency parameters or are emissions the determining factor? Where will the value be in the electricity markets: is it the delivery of energy, flexibility or availability that market players should strive for? Finally, will the market be led by supply offers, or will it gravitate around consumer profiles? These are some of the key questions that the speakers and the audience will debate from divergent angles.

Goodbye Customers, Hello Consumers - Using Customer Data Beyond Energy to Build the New Utility Relationship

Utilities have a unique opportunity to respond to growing household needs for a trusted energy advisor. However, to meet this opportunity requires a fundamental shift in mind-set: from focusing on energy customers, to recognising consumers. Marrying a shift in mind-set with new consumer technologies presents the utility of the future with the chance to not just respond to a wider array of consumer needs, but to effectively determine those needs. This has the potential to place the utility in an unchallengeable position within any consumer journey. This presentation will draw on proprietary consumer science data from collaborations between Cranfield School of Management (UK) and Enervee (US) to illustrate the potential of engaging consumers to drive the utility forward to becoming the trusted energy advisor.

The De-utilization of Energy

Three disruptions are threatening to put an end to the utility model as we know it: Market disruptions as zero-marginal cost decentralized energy sources destabilize power markets and make centralized generation and transmission assets stranded; Technology and business model disruptions with the dramatic progress of storage and EVs and the emergence of energy communities; Political disruptions as local governments and communities seize the occasion to re-establish power on energy infrastructures and services. We will try to analyze these disruptions and to map out a systemic vision of a "de-utilized" energy world.

Power Shift – Transformation Towards a Prosumer-centric Energy World

Consumers are playing an increasingly active role in the energy grid, from generation to distribution. They become prosumers.  Across Europe, numerous electricity and energy cooperatives have sprung up in the last decade. They range from ideas of total grid-autarchy to securing sustainable, affordable electricity for the community while still relying on back-up power from the grid or tapping new revenue streams. They claim and develop the power to interact with traditional utilities on eye level. Cooperation at all levels will trump centralized control mechanisms and, what’s more, enabling transactions could even become more important than owning assets.

Analytics and Business Excellence - Transforming Complex Data into Business Value

We know from market research that the return of investment for analytics are high yet a recent Oracle study indicates utilities are still challenged with leveraging their data. Only 17% feel prepared to handle the influx of data and only 11% are making strategic decisions based on the information. Although there has been significant improvement from previous years, utilities still have an opportunity to leverage analytics more. The pressure on utilities to run their operations better has never been stronger. Other industries are leveraging analytics and utilities should be doing this more.

Utility of The Future

To continue to meet customers’ needs, utilities must adapt to dramatic changes in the energy sector. These changes are driven by a variety of forces: Decarbonization, Technology & Market Development and Regulatory Environment. Mostly, however, and most importantly for us, the energy sector is being changed by our customers, and their changing needs and expectations. Beyond the underlying requirement to efficiently deliver safe and reliable energy, utilities must serve as trusted partners as our customers’ (large and small, in all sectors)  seek visibility and control of their energy bills, new products and services, and an overall ‘frictionless’ interaction with their utility.

A digital grid isn’t enough

It is clear that the world, including energy distribution, is getting more connected and digital. In order to stay a relevant actor during and after this evolution everyone and almost everything has to adopt. Therefore, it is important to realize that it is not enough just to become digital or connected one has to become digitalized. Of course, this includes the use of modern technologies, but equally important and a must to get there is a change in mind-set as well as working culture. To become digitalized one has to use of new business models, machine learning and automation. Distribution has to become On Demand in all aspects. The important factor is that you act when there is a need. In addition to the above mentioned changes it is also important that the regulation follows the evolution and allows the DSOs to develop and make use of technologies needed for their core business.

Digital Substation – A Comprehensive Concept to Leverage the Benefits of Digitalization

Market liberalization and new generation structures, particularly fluctuating renewable infeed, tend to increase the complexity of grid management. Investment and maintenance strategies need to be optimized with regard to these technical challenges and to changing business models. In this task, the ability to continuously adapt to upcoming future challenges in a flexible and agile way is crucial for the future. This presentation focuses on the substation as a central element of electricity grids and illustrates concrete potentials of digitalization in substation technology and design, as well as their benefits for utilities.

Panel 2: A Data Economy

City Communication and Data Systems. Growing Impacts of Information. Information from social media, crowdsourcing and sharing economy companies will have a greater impact on cities. Cities are grappling with how to ingest this data into systems and put it to use. Not only is this data unstructured in the form of text, video, images and audio, but it also comes from a variety of sources that exist independent of government. This presents a challenge since data from these sources can be highly relevant and useful for improving government services. On the other side, how can the city leverage the value of data it already owns and how to re-aggregate and broker some of those innovative services to offer insights to commuters for journey planning? “Unlocking the power of data: smart cities tapping into data to improve people's daily lives”.

Panel 3: IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is offering opportunities for cities to become more efficient by leveraging constant connectivity and sensors from a diversity of devices. Cities today are piloting a variety of technologies, but lack comprehensive strategies to leverage intelligent end-devices. To-date cities have been slow to adopt these solutions, as utilities and telecommunications providers have taken the lead. Coordination is required to prevent these stakeholders from investing in both redundant communications systems and devices. During this panel, we will discuss how utilities and cities are achieving early project wins to create buy-in for larger IoT programs.

Adding Value with Eco-System Modeling to Ecosystem Development and Formation of PPPs

A successful infrastructure strategy requires a strong alignment among the utility providing services around infrastructure and the participants consuming these services for value creation in this energy ‘ecosystem’. To avoid trial and error in achieving this alignment, a new approach to modeling and planning the interaction of the participants within the energy ecosystem, including the utility, is presented. This approach uses energy as the common value flow amongst ecosystem entities, maps other value flows to the relationships between entities, and enables mutually beneficial relationships, thereby increasing value generation within the community energy ecosystem.

The Electric Vehicle, A Game Changer for the Energy Industry

With the electrical vehicle, the car maker is exploring new territories. Beyond the mobility, the EV will provide services to the grid. The grid operator will be able to use the EV battery as an additional affordable tool and the Driver will benefit from this service through TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) reduction. The challenge for both sectors is to trust each other to create a win-win operation.  Some roadblocks need to be addressed such as local regulation, cost of new components, revenue stream organisation, but the willingness of Renault and its partners is to succeed in the near future.

They have to adopt their strategies and actions in order to fulfil the needs of their customers and their inhabitants. A new framework and a new culture is needed. Is it the will to cooperate, to open the (past) secrets of business successes for partners fearlessly? Yes! ...referring to the success of the Joint Venture “ASCR” between Siemens und Wiener Stadtwerke. Cooperation is the key!
