Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

What's Next for Smart Cities?

The term Smart City is gaining momentum the world over, but does that mean that cities are becoming “smarter” or just looking to improve their image? What does it truly mean to be a “smart” city? And is it resonating with their residents, businesses and visitors? This briefing will look into how the smallest changes approaching city services can have a big impact on everything from security to energy and traffic to urban revitalization

Reasons to Attend:

- To understand key challenges cities are facing in the face of issues such as urbanization, environmental responses and new technologies
- To examine new ways cities are integrating smarter solutions to address seemingly unrelated services, for better quality of life and a higher tax base
- To explore how suppliers can provide comprehensive solutions to such a fragmented market

  • Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Recorded: Sep 3 2015 55 mins
    Malavika Tohani, Frost & Sullivan; Shannon Fraser, U.S. Commercial Service, Paddy Young, European Utility Week
    Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
  • Integrating Renewable into Utilities: Lessons Learned Globally Recorded: Aug 19 2015 50 mins
    Ravi K, Vice President, Energy & Environment
    On a given day in January 2014, renewable energy generation, accounted for more than 105% of Denmark's power demand. This was more than what the existing network could handle, creating voltage and frequency management issues. As the proportion of renewable energy increases in a country's energy mix, it creates significant technical, regulatory and business challenges. Globally, utilities are spending nearly $25 billion in maintaining and modernizing their power grid infrastructure. With the need to integrate more renewable, this will only increase. Is there a risk of these increased investments becoming stranded assets for utilities?

    Key Takeaway from the presentation:

    1. Understand the challenges and consequences of integrating large amount of renewable into utilities
    2. Learn about the Increasing role of energy storage technologies in integrating renewable into utilities
    3. Case studies from early adopters like Germany and Denmark
    4. What are the best practices and key success factors for integration
    5. Role of disruptive technologies and policy makers
