4:30 PM How to Leverage and Optimise Assets and Technologies In Decentralised Market

The energy market is becoming increasingly decentralised with DER more and more prevalent and accessible to the customer through such technologies as solar PV. The impact of this market change is seen both in strategy and operations and as a result the utility business model is having to be adapted. As part of this strategic change, assets and infrastructure usage are considered. The cost of building new assets, infrastructure and capability is set to be huge and as such utilities must understand how they can optimise existing infrastructure before they embark on any kind of expensive build.

This workshop will be an opportunity to learn from the expertise of the General Manager of Asset Strategy at Alinta Energy, Gary Bryant. He will guide you on the journey to understanding how your existing infrastructure can be leveraged to save dramatic costs and integrated into the new systems and models which the evolving market demands of the utility.

How you will benefit:
  • Discuss key drivers of change in the current market and impact on various areas of the evolving industry
  • Understand how existing assets can be leveraged in the new environment
  • Gain strategies of integration for new models, infrastructure and technology
