THE COMING REVOLUTION IN HYPER-SMART POWER SYSTEMS

11:00-12:15 Pavilion F, Conference Hall F3
Transformations in the global power industry are sending waves of change over the energy landscape. Advancements in generation, delivery, and storage technology and new ways of managing power systems of various scales are opening up new opportunities for the development of both conventional and renewable energy. In addition to the basic elements of the power industry – generation, distribution, and consumption – the new element of storage is emerging, which is capable of re-formatting the system and transforming electricity from a service to a tradable commodity. The introduction of smart networks and digital substations, the development of customer services, and solutions for commercial accounting of bidirectional energy transactions for power-generating consumers are all not only driving a shift towards smart power systems, but also setting up serious changes in the global energy mix. How should Russia act, within the scope of its energy policy, to accommodate these trends? How can maintaining the competitiveness of conventional energy exports be smoothly combined with participating in the sector’s IT race? How can Russia become a global leader in providing technological solutions for the smart power industry of the future?

Highlights

Oil will remain relevant for quite a long time in this more complex and diversified power system.

Sergey Vakulenko
Head of Strategy and Innovations Department, Gazprom Neft

We are seeing intellectualization and digitalization of the energy industry; we can see how smart wells, fields and mines actually reduce costs.

Alexei Texler
First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation

After some time, when the share of alternative energy in overall generation becomes big enough, the question as to how the market should be regulated will become relevant.

Grigory Vygon
Managing Director, VYGON Consulting

We will see how, in a few years, blockchain will remove sales companies and other intermediaries from our lives. All transactions will happen directly and automatically between the customer and the supplier.

Alexei Texler
First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation

Energy batteries and everything relating to renewable energy will actually shift the balance not just in the power grid, but in the energy industry in general.

Alexei Texler
First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation

We will definitely arrive at a point when alternative energy production becomes cheaper than conventional.

Anatoly Chubais
Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Executive Board, RUSNANO Corporation

Solar power generation as a national Russian startup has commenced successfully. I think that, by the end of the year, it will become perfectly clear that the same has happened to wind power generation.

Anatoly Chubais
Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Executive Board, RUSNANO Corporation

Industrial energy storage is a complete paradigm shift. We believe it isn’t a question for the year 3000, nor even 2050, but for the next decade.

Anatoly Chubais
Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Executive Board, RUSNANO Corporation

The more intelligence we put in the system, the more big data analytics we have. That is clearly the way forward… And therefore there is less and less need for subsidies in many areas.

Ghislain Lescuyer
Chairman of the Management Board, Saft
