Patrick Zandl: Energy industry post Edison, Křižík & IoT

  1. 1. Light bulb versus coal
  2. 2. Problems of energy industry • Large losses and no accumulation ☞ opportunity • No one wants to have power plant in their backyard • Raw (energy-primary) materials are available sparsely and in politically volatile regions mostly • Enough cheap energy is basis for all production and manufacturing
  3. 3. Power grid of yesterday
  4. 4. Today’s reality
  5. 5. Task for power industry of st 21 century is finding efficiency • Savings for end users: efficient savings without significant change of user habits through automation (where “efficient” = 30-50 % in 10 years) • Savings in production: Radical change of production and distribution setup (where “radical” = 1 generation)
  6. 6. So, how to save ... • Thorough automation for end users clever algorithms • Manage production according to present conditions • Shorten transmission lines • Decrease investment risks So, go decentralised, right?
  7. 7. Improvement: from simple to complex grid
  8. 8. Task for Smart Grid and Smart Metering • Knowledge of individual user energy profile • Ability to predict demand and respond on real time with supply • Time-shift energy intense activities • Provide feedback for control of CHP (combined heat and power), PV and energy storage
  9. 9. Conclusions about IoT • Internet of Things is important for improvement. It can help everywhere, where we need to step up efficiency of current resources. • IoT is just a technology. To be clever is your part of the game. • IoT never comes without Big Data & Smart Data Analysis.
  10. 10. Role of IoT & Big Data & Analysis • Analysis of discrete data streams. • Finding hidden dependencies and trends. • Prediction of future conditions of systems. • Possibility to predict unpredictable.
  11. 11. Risks and / or Issues • Increased complexity brings susceptibility to errors. • The system is de-facto closed and therefore hard to audit. • Possible problems can be massive and can escalate exponentially. Few experts really understand and can solve troubles. • Mustn’t underestimate backup plan, which we usually like to do.
  12. 12. • Homework for Webexpo 2035internet We are on the cusp of interwoving into all other industries (after IT, telco and media). • Huge opportunity to disrupt markets: lower prices, better customer relationship, increased satisfaction, availability and quality of service. • High risk transition, disruption of status quo and increseas complexity.
  13. 13. See opportunity? Anticipate risks?
