RalphFoong, Deputy Chief Executive, Energy Market Authority of Singapore

Presented by:

Akilur Rahman, Market Innovation Lead - South Asia & Chief Technology Officer - India, Hitachi Energy

Energy transition with accelerated shift to variable renewable power generation and growing electrification in transportation, industry and building sectors is making the power grid more and more complex. At the same time, prosumers are expecting the grid to be more reliable, flexible and resilient for round the clock availability of clean energy. Technologies such as HVDC (conventional, multi-terminal, meshed), green hydrogen power, energy storage (BESS, Hydrogen Fuel based – stationary and V2G), faster EV charging, dynamic reactive compensation (STATCOM), DERMS, Microgrid, etc. are going to play increasingly important role in making the grid smarter and intelligent. The key would be to integrate all these core technologies together with digital technologies such as data science, AI-ML, AR-VR, digital twin, cyber security, etc. for future of energy system of systems. This session will address the approach of co-innovation and co-creation in the technologies to achieve the goals.

Presented by:

Dr Avishek Kumar, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, VFlowTech

In the pursuit of a sustainable and carbon-neutral future, long-duration energy storage technologies are emerging as a cornerstone of the global effort to achieve net-zero emissions. This presentation delves into the transformative potential of flow battery technology in driving the transition to a net zero world - the unique attributes of flow batteries, their capacity for long-duration energy storage, and their role in mitigating the intermittency challenges of renewable energy sources. By exploring real-world applications and success stories, this talk will underscore how flow battery technology is reshaping energy landscapes, bolstering grid stability, and facilitating the integration of renewables.

Presented by:

Giorgio Fortunato, Head of APAC Data Center Energy, Google

Technology can and must play a crucial role in facilitating the transition to a lower-carbon future. Google is committed to doing our part by leveraging technology to optimise operations and reduce our emissions. This presentation will share our efforts in technological innovations and how we are pursuing an ambitious clean energy goal to operate our data centers and office campuses on 24/7 carbon-free energy.

Justin Oettmeier, Vice President of Technical Development, Asia Pacific, ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions

ExxonMobil will discuss the role CCS can play in helping to reduce global CO2 emissions, particularly for the hard-to-decarbonise sectors such as power generation and the petrochemical, steel and cement industries. The presentation will highlight how CCS hubs and new technologies across the value chain can accelerate the pace and scale of decarbonisation and help industry reduce emissions.  In addition, ExxonMobil will highlight the opportunities and challenges associated with implementing a cross border CCS value chain which will be a key enabler for the Asia Pacific region.

Henri Paillere, Head of Planning and Economic Studies Section, International Atomic Energy Agency

Nuclear power is increasingly seen as an indispensable part of future low-carbon energy systems, able to support the integration of large shares of variable renewables by providing reliable and dispatchable power. Presentation by Dr Henri Pailliere, highlighting how nuclear power could support net zero transitions.

Jan Holm, Executive Vice President, Seaborg Technologies

In this presentation, Jan Holm aims to illuminate the transformative potential of Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) in meeting global energy demands. The dialogue will underscore the baseload benefit of nuclear power, highlighting its capacity to provide a consistent and reliable energy source, crucial for burgeoning economies and industries. 

A pivotal point of his discussion will be the introduction of Seaborg’s innovative floating SMR solution. This strategy is distinguished by its enhanced safety features and rapid deployment time, addressing prevalent concerns associated with nuclear power development. Floating SMRs amalgamate the benefits of traditional nuclear power with added layers of flexibility and safety, rendering them a feasible option for a multitude of countries. 

To harness the myriad benefits of SMRs and Seaborg’s distinctive floating solution, Seaborg Technologies believes it is imperative for nations to incorporate nuclear energy into their developmental strategies. This presentation aims to enlighten stakeholders on the merits of SMRs and advocate for proactive steps towards a secure and sustainable energy future through the adoption of advanced nuclear technology.
