Powering Good for Sustainable Energy

November 4, 17:00 JST (09:00 CET)
Claudio Facchin
Hitachi ABB Power Grids

Join us to learn more about Hitachi ABB Power Grids and how we create value for customers, partners and society. We will cover what the global landscape for power systems looks like, as well as opportunities related to grid integration, mobility, transportation and IT. We will also explore examples in different regions and markets around the world, for utilities, energy companies and across multiple industries. In addition, we will touch on how the high level of integration of renewables as well as the stronger focus on sustainability has implications on the power grid and the ongoing green energy transition. Finally, we will offer a perspective on how we can, together, enable the world's grid infrastructure to support sustainable societies.

Mastering the Energy Transition with Power Systems for the Future

November 6, 17:00 JST (09:00 CET)
Gerhard Salge
Hitachi ABB Power Grids

​Join us to learn more about how Hitachi ABB Power Grids is enabling customers to master the global energy transition - focusing on the implications for power systems. Discover ways to overcome the major technical challenges faced when introducing high amounts of fluctuating variable renewable energy generation, increased power electronic based equipment and significantly less generators with inertia. Exploring cases in grid interconnections, micro-grids, active power quality devices and digital technology advancements, we will demonstrate how the power systems of the future can be managed without compromising on reliability and availability. Our ambition is to connect more people to reliable, sustainable and affordable electrical energy.

Digitalizing the Power Grid

November 4, 17:30 JST (09:30 CET)
Globally, power grid operators face both grinding business challenges and new macro disruptions. They are charged with providing safe, reliable power; meeting always-on customer expectations; and decarbonizing their operations for a sustainable future. Digitalization is the key to achieving these goals. In this session, we will explore the digital building blocks for optimizing the modern grid -- APM, EAM, and FSM-- and the evolution of Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ industry-leading software combined with Hitachi Vantara’s cutting-edge Lumada offerings. In addition, we will cover key customer outcomes and showcase our combined technology roadmap.
