Customer and the Grid: How Data Analytics Unlocks Two Sides of the Meter for Visualizing, Managing, and Optimizing the Impact of DERs

Date: Tuesday, Feb. 7, 10:30AM - 11:30AM

Room: 28A, Upper Level

Today's grid is growing exponentially complex, particularly with the rapid proliferation of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and the transformative role of the customer in the supply-demand equation. Understanding the impact of DERs and grid assets is critical, and data analytics plays a key role in driving visibility, optimization, and actionable outcomes.

Transforming Your Business from Generation to Distribution

Date: Tuesday, Feb. 7, 12PM - 1PM

Room: 28A, Upper Level

The energy transformation is creating new challenges for increasingly resource-constrained utilities in every sector of the value chain. Effectively managing power grids, water, and gas for entire cities and regions at scale is no small feat. And while each segment of the supply chain is unique, that doesn’t mean you have to assemble multiple solutions providers to support each area of your operations. At Honeywell, our energy transformation portfolio has been designed to support the entire supply chain; from generation to transmission to distribution, giving you access to the diverse resources and holistic thinking of a single source provider for all your needs. We’ve curated a broad array of services, technologies, equipment, and intelligent devices to help your enterprise confidently meet the changes that are on the horizon, as well as the ones you wrestle with today. These end-to-end solutions have been built to help utilities address the impact of digitalization, and decentralization, while helping reduce cost, and improving overall productivity, safety, and profitability in this rapidly evolving environment.

Speakers:

  • Hamed Heyhat, Vice President and General Manager, Honeywell Smart Energy & Thermal Solutions

Are Utilities Ready for the Energy Systems of the Future?

Date: Wednesday, Feb. 8, 12PM - 1PM

Room: 28A, Upper Level

Today’s energy utilities are becoming increasingly data-driven enterprises. Data analytics is essential to improve operations and drive decarbonization. Utilities have to manage a diverse set of generation assets, enable close to real-time data analytics across transmission and distribution, and empower consumers’ active participation. They use predictive analytics to identify equipment before it fails, determine the highest fire risk areas, and flag circuits susceptible to weather-related outages.

Industrial-scale wind and solar, grid-edge technologies such as photovoltaics, storage, and vehicle-to-grid integration have rapidly proliferated. Utilities are therefore increasingly turning to agile, cloud-based programs to manage these diverse assets, strengthen grid reliability and improve operational safety and efficiency. Orchestration across the energy value chain is more complex than ever, and future energy systems will be producing an immense amount of data. Those utilities that know how to collect data and leverage data analytics are leading the way in innovations.

This panel of utility and technology executives will share perspectives on real-world projects that unlock growth, innovation, and acceleration toward a cleaner, transformative energy future.

Speakers:

  • Rolf Gibbels, Head of Worldwide Utilities, Amazon Web Services
  • Shailesh Manga, Cheif Operating Officer, Vector Technology Solutions
  • John Pressley, Director, Clean Energy Digital Strategy & Engineering, Duke Energy
  • Ben Gordon, CIO & Chief Digital Officer, Sempra Energy
