Our DNV GL - Energy experts are looking forward to meet you at Digital Utilities Europe in Amsterdam and to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the digitalization in the utility sector.  

Presentation: Digital transformation in grid operation  
Presenter: Theo Borst, Business Director Digital Grid DNV GL – Energy
Date/time: Tuesday 16 May 2018, 5:30PM 
Abstract: Digitalization is one of the three forces driving the energy transition (the other ones being Decarbonization and Decentralization) and it will have a big impact on many aspects of the power industry. Looking specifically at transmission and distribution grid operators, increased economic constraints as well as supply fluctuations due to infeed of renewable energy have resulted in increased complexity in the operation of modern power grids. Grid operators and control center engineers will need to deal with this complexity. Fortunately, emerging technologies such as big data analytics, blockchain, mobile and cloud can drive a ‘digital transformation’ in grid operation, which has a tremendous potential to add value in situational awareness and decision support. 

This presentation will discuss the digital transformation journey that grid operators may follow, and the steps that are needed to increase maturity level on digitalization: from identifying use cases, and data sources, to implementing appropriate data models, to improving data quality, to implementing a analytics environment that can realize return on investments of digital transformation of power system operation. The presentation will include practical examples of innovative solutions.
