Spear­head­ing a more sus­tain­able, low-car­bon and smart en­ergy sys­tem

EME Outlook - - Contents -

THE ROAD TO 2050, dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion of the en­ergy sec­tor, and fi­nanc­ing the fu­ture of en­ergy are three key themes of this year’s Global Power & En­ergy Lead­ers’ Sum­mit, tak­ing place at GPEX 2018, in Spain.

GPEX 2018, along­side Gastech in Barcelona, Spain (17-20 Septem­ber), will spear­head a more sus­tain­able, low-car­bon and smart en­ergy sys­tem through its newly re­leased con­fer­ence pro­gramme agenda.

The mod­erni­sa­tion of the en­ergy sys­tem is tak­ing place si­mul­ta­ne­ously with a shift to a low-car­bon econ­omy. With the in­creas­ingly cen­tral role of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies, the power and en­ergy in­dus­tries need to adapt their busi­ness mod­els and em­brace in­no­va­tion, within the new en­ergy land­scape, to re­main com­pet­i­tive, be­come more ef­fi­cient and adapt to the grow­ing needs and de­mands of their cus­tomers.

70 tran­si­tion ex­perts from in­ter­na­tional power and en­ergy busi­ness will speak, in­clud­ing: • Agustín Del­gado Martin, Chief In­no­va­tion and Sus­tain­abil­ity Of­fi­cer, Iber­drola Group • Neil Chat­ter­jee, Com­mis­sioner, US Fed­eral En­ergy Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion (FERC) • Toshiro Ku­dama, Chief Power

Devel­op­ment Of­fi­cer, JERA Co., Inc. • Blanca Losada Martin, Chief Tech­nol­ogy and En­gi­neer­ing Of­fi­cer, Gas Nat­u­ral Fenosa • Ulla Sand­borgh, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Sven­ska kraft­nät • Thierry Lepercq, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent in charge of Re­search & Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion, ENGIE • An­drea Stra­chi­nescu, Head of Unit, New En­ergy Tech­nolo­gies, In­no­va­tion and Clean Coal, DG En­ergy, Euro­pean Com­mis­sion • Te­jpreet S. Cho­pra, Pres­i­dent and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Bharat Light & Power

GPEX Ex­hi­bi­tion

The Sum­mit is an in­te­gral part of the Global Power & En­ergy Ex­hi­bi­tion (GPEX 2018) – which will show­case 200 ex­hibit­ing com­pa­nies demon­strat­ing the strate­gies and tech­nolo­gies needed to adapt to the en­ergy tran­si­tion.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies in­clude EDP Renevaveis, In­noen­ergy, Innogy, Al­ter­na­tive En­ergy In­no­va­tions, and A.T. Kear­ney En­ergy Tran­si­tion In­sti­tute.

Co-lo­cated with Gastech, these events will bring to­gether 30,000 global power and en­ergy in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als - gov­ern­ment, com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial power users, gas op­er­a­tors, power pro­duc­ers and dis­trib­u­tors, tech­nol­ogy providers and re­new­able en­ergy com­pa­nies; to en­hance the di­a­logue be­tween the sec­tors that will play a sig­nif­i­cant role in the global en­ergy tran­si­tion.
