The twin transition: policy alignment between the green and digital agendas

Future policy panel

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

The twin transition refers to the simultaneous shift towards a more sustainable and digital economy. This approach recognises the potential for technology and data to drive sustainability and decarbonisation. The twin transition is seen as a key strategy for achieving the goals of several global mandates, including the European Green Deal, the Inflation Reduction Act and the Chinese 14th 5-Year Plan, which all have an emphasis on green innovation as a key enabler of a carbon-neutral future. How can policymakers ensure alignment between digital technologies and the shift towards a sustainable net zero economy?

Deploying generative AI: off the shelf, in-house or an integrated approach?

Technical case studies

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

There are several pathways to deploy generative AI, each with its own benefits and drawbacks in terms of cost, access to data, process complexity and need for skilled workers. Off-the-shelf generative AI solutions are low-cost, but have limited scope for customisation. For more specific applications, companies may choose to build their own generative AI models by leveraging off-the shelf solutions supported by APIs or open-source models. But which approach best allows companies to align generative AI capabilities with more specific organisational goals? What factors should a company consider when considering its generative AI strategy?

Examining future energy retail models powered by digitalisation: enabling demand side flexibility

Panel debate

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

Digitalisation is creating new energy retail models that leverage advanced technologies and analytics such as energy service aggregators, peer-to-peer energy trading, virtual power plants and dynamic pricing and demand response. However, the adoption of these new energy business models depends on supportive regulatory frameworks, enabling market structures, and consumer preferences. As energy storage technologies reach commercialisation, how will digital technologies act as both a catalyst and a tool for the creation of new energy business models and new revenue streams, and how can they be used to inform pricing mechanisms and regulations that support decentralisation, demand side flexibility and consumer-driven energy models?

Intelligent automation solutions to decarbonise the oil and gas industry

Case study series

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

The majority of oil and gas operations are still being driven manually. However, manual operations create data siloes that prevent value creation, business model innovation and efficiencies. Intelligent automation systems can break down these siloes by connecting disparate databases, applications, and devices to create a unified data environment, allowing for a holistic view of operations. How can this holistic view of operations automate emissions monitoring and identify emissions hotspots in the value chain, to provide support for decarbonisation strategies and facilitate the integration of clean energy technologies into oil and gas processes?

Emerging peer-2-peer energy trading models: A catalyst for decentalisation?

Peer-to-peer project showcase

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

The rise in distributed energy sources is enabling retail energy consumers in a handful of markets to partake in energy trading. This rise in electrification, coupled with a greater input of energy from decentralised renewable sources, is also creating new opportunities for consumers to participate as producers. In the context of today’s traditional energy system, peer-to-peer energy trading models act as a replacement for the energy retailer, enabling consumers to buy and sell energy and manage energy pricing risk themselves, with Balance Responsible Parties managing the aggregate supply and demand. In the future, how could peer-to-peer models allow for better alignment between local generation and demand and drive a greater proportion of renewable electricity to the grid?

Attendee insights:

This session will showcase peer-to-peer energy trading platforms and pilot projects with the potential to drive the shift towards a new decentralised energy model.

Digital twin technology for the energy transition: a focus on green hydrogen

Live demo

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

Digital twins can support the energy sector’s transition to greener and more sustainable operations. Digital twins have fundamental and unmatched capabilities that give engineers and operators an end to end view of how a process is functioning, enabling them to monitor performance and make real time adjustments to increase efficiency and reduce downtime. This is particularly relevant for green hydrogen technologies where stakeholders are hyper vigilant about efficient design and operations of their process units. In this presentation and demo, understand how engineers and operators can monitor real time performance of their green hydrogen plants, run virtual scenarios to evaluate the effect of varying power supply on hydrogen production rates/costs and troubleshoot potential issues with electrolyser performance.

Attendee insights:

Graphics processing units (GPUs) as enablers to bridge the gap between industrial reservoir simulation and geologic carbon sequestration modeling

Case study presentation

Session Location: Digitalisation in Energy Zone, Chevron Hall, Hall 14

While reservoir simulators have matured commercially, geologic carbon sequestration models tend to favour academic and research options due to their complexity. In order to meet worldwide geologic carbon sequestration needs measured in billions of tons per year, we need simulation software with all the required physics, yet with the robustness, reliability, and performance of industrial reservoir simulators. Perhaps more importantly, it needs to be easily adopted by a large population of reservoir engineers in domain transition. We will see that this goal is now within reach, owing to the emergence of graphics processing units (GPUs) for high performance computing.

Attendee insights:

Understand how graphics processing units, now in broad use in almost every field of technology, are clearing the path towards the industrialization of modelling geologic carbon sequestration.
