Thursday, July 15, 2021 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM
Summit Stage
Opening Session
Generation [conventional & renewable]


Transition to a decarbonized future led by renewable energies would require forward-thinking digital power generation solutions given conventional power remains and will continue to remain the biggest contributor to the nation’s energy mix for years to come. 

Flexibility and digitalization will thus be the key to navigating multiple energy challenges - from fluctuating demand and the integration of renewables, to the changing role of coal-fired plants. 

From plant maintenance, emissions reduction, combustion optimization to operational efficiency & reliability pragmatic adoption of digital technologies, are vital to ensure enhanced machine and personnel performance. Digital twins, AI, the IoT, predictive maintenance, robotics, and Big Data analytics are already providing measurable returns to early adopters. 

Getting ahead of the curve would therefore require plant operators to collaborate, innovate & navigate the energy transition with digital.
