Introduction

The power industry is undergoing important transformations. It is necessary for most actors in the sector to update and enlarge their vision of the energy world, in order to adjust both their technical decisions and business strategies.

This one-day seminar is a comprehensive overview of significant changes related to Decarbonisation, Decentralisation and Digitalisation impacting all energy eco-systems worldwide. We examine current evolution from technical, economic and market design perspectives. We highlight significant opportunities and challenges ahead: renewables integration, microgrid solutions, key role of energy storage systems, energy as a service and demand side flexibility.


At the end of the day, participants get a clearer vision of how the technical systems, as well as the energy market and regulation frameworks are evolving, globally, and in local Singaporean and South East Asian contexts.

A. Power industry: past, present and future

How decentralization, digitalization and decarbonization is changing the energy landscape, looking at operational systems and market design:

• Power industry value chain and market design
• Impact of growing variable energy resources on the Power System
• Upcoming challenges and opportunities

B. Significant Trends

• On supply side: renewable development in a market context and intermittency management, Virtual Power Plant (VPP), new financing opportunities, corporate Power Purchase Agreement (Corporate PPA)
• On demand side: Energy-as-a-service, microgrids solutions and advanced energy management systems
• Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) at the crossroad: overview of the different revenue opportunities and role of BESS

C. Analyzing a specific Use Case – Development of Demand Response in Europe

• Why demand response in Europe? regulatory change, associated challenges and opportunities
• Transformation of the market players and new business model beyond Demand Response
