Breakout Session 3B – Transformation of the Energy Value Chain
New distributed energy technologies (especially renewables), digitalisation and customer behaviour are blurring traditional energy chain boundaries at exponential pace, which means that the energy industry needs to essentially ‘rewire’, while ‘keeping the lights on’.
This transformation creates unprecedented complexities and new opportunities that resulting new value streams and physical realities especially at interfaces between customer and network as well as transmission and distribution network.
This session will share first-hand experiences and state-of-the-art implementations about how the traditional boundaries between transmission, distribution, smart meters, DERs and customers can be bridged to transform the energy value chain.
