Grids of the Future Summit 2019 is a 2-day networking event with revolutionary keynotes, case studies, and panels. It brings together experts from the fields of Energy Providers, App Developers, Digital Micro Grid Providers, Renewable Energy Makers, Visionaries and Environmentalists from all over the globe to discuss how AI Energy and Blockchain technologies are impacting the Future of Energy. A one of a kind forum to benchmark, gain subject matter expertise & business intelligence by collaborating with industry leaders from the fields of Renewable Energy, Power Utilities, Certifications, Cryptocurrencies, and more!
Energy and Power are one of the most crucial reasons for environmental destruction and now we are entering a phase where renewable power will be and should be accessible to all households, without the existence of big utility monopolies. New technological innovations like blockchain are more powerful and reliable, and will not only help in making these energy transactions, cost and time efficient but will also make them completely transparent. Individuals will be able to carry out these trades with their own devices using renewable currencies. Energy supply will not be limited to traditional methods of distribution.
Industry professionals can use new technologies to replace already existing supply systems to a new market which is both decentralized and transparent. This would substantially reduce onboarding friction by creating a direct line-of-sight from buyers to Utilities or Prosumer suppliers. It would also eliminate market inefficiencies arising due to onboarding friction. DERs will evict any existing monopolies but offering a choice of energy supply to the consumers. New developed technologies will provide better informed procurement decisions which will cause reduction in the stress on energy infrastructure.
As we race to capture & create new value, optimize business ecosystems, & reduce risk, our systems need to become more adaptive & resilient. They must adapt & learn to manage complexity introduced by broader computing & partnering ecosystems, including new interactions driven by the IoT & AI. By infusing business networks with new technologies, diverse systems can interact seamlessly. Processes can transcend individual organizations, eliminating issues created by inefficiencies or lack of trust & transparency. All improvements can streamline the exchange of value along our ecosystem.
