  • Panel Discussion 1
    Global Trends in Clean Energy

    The levelized cost of electricity, or LCOE, – clearly achieved the long-awaited goal of grid competitiveness in many countries and even undercut the traditional sources of electricity from coal or gas in some. This low cost of renewable power along with drop in storage prices has made it a viable option attracting investments to the tune of $287.5 billion in 2016. In addition to that growing demand from corporates to go 100% renewable, push from developing economies like India and China, climate goals and more will see a rapid transition of the global energy mix. Our esteemed panelists led by BNEF will debate on all these issues and do some crystal gazing into what will shape the clean energy landscape in 2017.

  • Keynote 2
    Overview of Digitalisation and Industrial IoT Revolution in Energy

11:40 - 12:30
  • Panel Discussion 2
    Digitalisation and Industrial IoT Revolution in Energy

    Last decade has seen national ambition to build smart cities, buildings & industries. In the energy space, the advancement and availability of technologies related to renewable energy, Hybrid AC/DC Micro Grid, building management systems, energy storage, sensors and communications networks as well as data analytics provides the opportunity to integrate disparate systems onto a systems-on-systems optimizing platform. Such a smart multi energy system is a spring board to transform big data using intelligent algorithms into smart data that will enable complex systems to achieve optimal energy balance with minimal wastage.

    The interoperability and compatibility with legacy systems is mandatory to fully realize the benefits of system-on-system control platforms. This session aims to explore the complexities and benefits of “smart” system-of-system level solutions for the energy sector.

International Floating Solar Symposium (IFSS)

Floating Solar is unlocking 400,000km2 - and thereby a new TW-scale opportunity for photovoltaics - on freashwater reservoirs alone. It addressed the water-energy-nexus with evaporation savings and complementary hydropower, and offers paths to ultra-low balance of systems (BOS) cost. Thus it is seen, respectively, as a critical piece for continuing the exponential growth of solar, reaching high renewable penetration, and extending the cost learning curve of PV as a whole.
