Smart Energy Conference

At a recent meeting of the US Energy Association several key areas of concern were discussed that exist for the Energy Industry. These include:

  • Resiliency
  • Cyber security and threat monitoring
  • Renewables
  • Distributed energy technology
  • Risk assessments
  • Maintenance
  • Operating cost reduction
  • Storage technologies, particularly batteries

Every one of these areas of concern are impacted by the revolution of IOT, AI, and M2M technologies. Smart rigs lead to smart pipelines and then to smart grids.

The Smart Energy Conference will cover these areas and how they affect oil rigs, refineries, and pipelines.

On November 28, 2018, the Smart Energy Conference (co-located with SpaceCom 2018) will feature a full day of workshops examining these and other areas of interest for the Oil & Gas sector of the Energy Industry. Participants will hear from leading experts in their fields and then have an opportunity to discuss amongst themselves the implications for their companies and the industry.
