Dr. Robert Thomann
10:20AM - Day 2
Panel: Smart Grids for safer, more secure and reliable energy
- Comparing smart grids across all scales, from microgrids inside mixed energy use buildings and the home to country wide smart grids.
- What are the big benefits of implementing smart grids for distributed energy resources such as those generating, storing and using energy? What role does supply and demand play within smart and micro grids and how are these demands managed?
- Using smart grids to track and automate distribution of energy across these resources and increase operational efficiency.
- How can smart grids help improve the safety of power distribution – predictive maintenance and beyond.
Solo: The role of energy suppliers in delivering smart grid and flexibility solutions for customers
- Introducing the technologies that OVO (the UK’s largest independent energy supplier) is developing to unlock the flexibility from electric vehicles, batteries and smart heaters.
E.ON Off Grid Solutions
12:00PM - Day 2
Solo: How IoT is enabling electrification across rural Africa with smart, renewable energy
Over a billion people globally still do not have access to electricity. Though this gap is increasingly being filled by decentralized renewable generation, and in particular smart mini-grids. The cost of physically servicing these remote systems can be a challenge – therefore, reliable and cost-effective operation requires remote management based on novel connectivity solutions. We will discuss the lessons learned from operating a portfolio of mini-grids in rural Tanzania, and how IoT has enabled us to supply 5,000 previously unelectrified people with reliable electricity.

03:10PM - Day 2
Solo: uCIFI, the open source wireless communication for smartcities and utilities
- How the lack of open interoperable networks and protocols and the variety of proprietary APIs lock the Smart City and Utility markets?
- What are the goals of the uCIFI Alliance that is announced at the IoT Tech Expo Europe 2018 ?
- Who are the large industrial companies, the cities and the utilities joining efforts to specify solutions to unlock their markets?
- What are the deliverables and the milestones of the uCIFI Alliance?
Case Study: The way in which Smart Cities can create a better quality of life for citizens
Mr Van Nistelrooij, being an EPP shadow rapporteur in the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee (IMCO) of the European Parliament on the new European Telecoms law (EECC) being decided now, will give, amongst others, a policy perspective on the importance of making the right decisions in this framework on spectrum allocation and 5G deployment, and how decisively this will affect (smart) cities and innovation.
