PANEL: Achieving Grid Connectivity – Renewable Power Integration and Opportunities for Power Optimisation, Security and Affordability

Operating electric grids with high penetration of intermittent resources poses unique challenges for utilities and grid operators. One traditional response is to ramp up gas-fired generators but soon, storage solutions could offer new strategies. How are Generators and RE Developers adjusting their strategies to cope with the big switch to renewables while still managing to offer energy security at an affordable price?

PANEL: Electric Dreams – Building Momentum in the Renewable Energy ‘Electrification for Everything’ Low Carbon Future

Renewables are absorbing twice as much investment for power generation as coal, gas, oil and nuclear combined last year. Global oil and gas companies are shifting their models through acquisitions in the power generation and distribution sector as well as in EV. Where do the synergies lie between energy transition opportunities, wind, solar and carbon capture? How should companies be preparing for the Electrification of Everything?
