More than smart meters: The digital transformation of the power industry

Smart Utilities
The growth of renewables and distributed generation has changed the game in the electric power industry, requiring new solutions for managing the flow of electricity, challenging the age-old business models of utilities, and positioning customers as active participants in their power use. These changes have unearthed new unmet needs, and digital tools like AI and IoT have answered the call, streamlining existing processes and enabling entirely new approaches. Digital companies will undoubtedly be key players in the future of power, and incumbents that do not embrace this change are unlikely to survive. In the complex and challenging power industry, what digital opportunities on the horizon should your company act on today, and how can you do that successfully? In this presentation, we’ll explore:
  • Where opportunities exist for digital technologies in the power industry
  • How these opportunities align with industry trends
  • Why strategic choices around key considerations like regulation and cybersecurity are critical to a successful digital strategy in power

Preparing for the (clean) tech tsunami of the 21 Century

Keynotes
  • Our experience of markets in the last 30 years tell us what to expect when disruptive technologies hit, how quickly new successful technology rushes through the economy, washing the old way of doing things from memory. The adoption of smarter technologies - including cleantech, automation, robotics and 3D printing - in homes, businesses and industry in every city, and connected through social media and smart devices including wearables, is changing the world and the way we interact with family, friends and customers, and much faster than (almost) anyone imagined.
  • Previous markets warn us about how quickly new disruptive technologies might arrive. New supply chains arise far more quickly than in the past. And now clients are demanding cleaner, cheaper, faster, smarter – and also local. But, curiously, most market forecasts for new technology largely assume business as usual - traditional usage patterns continuing without anticipating shifts as fast, or disruptive. So, how quickly will we respond, and change how we live and work in the cities we live in? What does this mean for how we plan and regenerate cities? What does this mean for future for safety and for quality of life and rapidly changing community expectations? What might safe, smart, liveable cities look like by 2040?

Disrupting the Power Industry: Why our future energy infrastructure may have wheels and a brain

Game Changing Technology
The power industry is undergoing a significant transformation with potential disruption occurring from a multitude of areas. In this presentation Lux Research will discuss what one of those potential disruption looks like, how that might change what we think of as energy infrastructure, and how to think about the future of the power industry. A strategy for the future is key and the ability to think about power not as a silo, but as a web that touches and connects many different pieces of many difference industries together. Due to those changes, it might mean that someone else’s industry could hold the key to disruption in yours.

Batteries included

Solar & Storage
The relentless on-going plunge in costs for wind and especially solar is surprising many. Those that are most surprised are in the traditional energy sectors – but the rate of change is even surpassing the expectation of most analysts in the renewable sector anticipating the change! What is more surprising to almost everyone is that the rate of change is being matched, and indeed by some metrics, outstripped by lithium-ion batteries. The arrival of large volumes of ever cheaper electrical storage is game changing - not only for delivery of energy security for otherwise intermittent renewables, but also for electric vehicles, and power tools, and many other categories of devices that will benefit from cheaper portable energy.
