  • Covid has thrust unprecedented challenges upon utilities. They are experiencing shifts in energy demand loads and supply chain disruptions, managing a remote workforce with limited access to critical IT-OT infrastructure, and operating with a reduced field workforce, besides being exposed to greater cybersecurity risks.
  • While efforts to move towards IT-OT convergence have been underway, the current environment is forcing utilities to accelerate this shift. Utilities are prioritising their IT-OT initiatives and realising the benefits of fast-tracking their digital transformation plans to be able to work remotely and effectively.
  • Digitalisation is becoming an increasingly important part of distribution utility operations. Key central government programmes and initiatives such as the Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) and the National Smart Grid Mission (NSGM) have been supporting the utilities’ efforts towards IT-OT convergence. The IPDS is playing a key role in helping distribution utilities adopt a host of automation and digital solutions such as AMI and prepaid smart metering, GIS-based asset mapping, real-time data acquisition systems and ERP. Meanwhile, under the NSGM, utilities are working on state-of-the-art projects in automation, IT and communication to monitor and control power flows to points of consumption.
  • Generation companies are moving forward with a wide range of digital projects to improve efficiencies and performance, and shift from time-based maintenance to predictive and reliability-based maintenance. Advanced process controls, digital asset management, advanced stockyard monitoring software, 3D modelling and digital twins are some of the key areas in which digital transformation projects are being taken up. Further, with technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) undergoing rapid development today, operators are looking to adopt these solutions as part of their digital transformation strategies.
  • The transmission segment is seeing a growing uptake of advanced forecasting and real-time measurement systems for renewable energy management, wide area measurement (WAM) technologies and PMUs for better grid diagnostics, and solutions like EMS, modernised SCADA and ADMS. The use of big data technology to store significant amounts of historical and forecasting data is another trend that is seeing growing interest among transcos.
  • That said, utilities recognise that digitalisation poses increased risks related to data theft, privacy, unintended cyber incidents and intentional cyberattacks. Therefore, it is essential to build digital energy security around the concepts of digital system resilience, cyber hygiene and security by design as utilities move forward with their digital plans.

The mission of this virtual conference is to focus on:

  • New and Emerging IT-OT Requirements of Utilities
