    Reimagining the Electric Grid: Grid Management

    Power generation is quickly decarbonizing through adoption of renewable energy sources like solar and wind, however, this transition is putting tremendous pressure on the electric grid which is faced with insufficient transmission capacity and intermittency. On the demand side, the electrification of transportation and industrial process heat are fueling the demand for more clean power. This in turn is exposing the vulnerabilities of the distribution grid’s reliability and controls.

    Panelists will discuss:

    • Supply side challenges to deliver clean energy to end users and the role of innovation.
    • How grid operators can prepare for the rapid increase in demand for electricity that is expected.
    • The challenges and opportunities for utilities and grid operators from the rise of the prosumer with mass adoption of distributed energy resources like rooftop solar and battery storage.
    • The role of the mobility sector in providing grid and demand side management services.
    • How startups can play a role in this conservative industry.

    Adaptation in Asia: Fighting Against Rising Sea Levels

    Asia will likely be one of the worst hit regions by climate change with many countries already being affected. Rising sea levels are eroding arable land in low-elevation coastal zones posing a severe risk for food insecurity and exports. As a result, a large portion of public spending is dedicated to adaptation, and although data on private spending is poor, there are signs that this will increase, particularly with mandatory global disclosures on climate risk exposure.

    Join our diverse panel of speaker as they offer perspective and insight on different adaptation and resilience option or the region:

    • Climate Risk Analytics: Sensors and software to assess risk exposure and provide early warnings to extreme weather events.
    • Climate Resilience: Risk analytics and resilient infrastructure (e.g., sea walls, drought resilient crops).
    • Climate Resilient Insurance: A look into how the insurance industry is utilizing innovation to prevent asset damage and reduce losses.
  • Interactive Briefing
    Interactive Briefing: Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES)

    The US dominates grid scale energy storage today, but Asia Pacific will be the top market soon and likely remain there throughout the next few decades. Long duration battery storage has been the top option for most Asian installations, with lithium ion still the predominant technology but also use of flow batteries. In certain pockets of Asia Pacific, promising new thermal storage projects are coming online as well, which could serve as templates for the rest of the region. The Research Manager from Cleantech Group will discuss these projects and what the future may hold, including:

    • The supply gaps in renewable power creating demand pull for long-duration storage. 
    • How innovation is breaking open long-duration storage opportunities through improvements to efficiency, capacity, and cost. 
    • The “where” and “when” of new innovations – the geographic and end-use dynamics associated with deployment of the newest innovation.

    Interactive Briefing: EV Batteries

    The global transition from gas and diesel-powered transportation to EVs will require a massive increase in battery production. Lithium-ion batteries, the most common in EVs, have become increasingly efficient and cost-effective in the past decade, facilitating the dropping cost and improved range of EVs. However, in the face of supply chain challenges and volatile materials costs, innovation in battery chemistry, manufacturing, and materials-use promise lighter, less expensive, and more powerful batteries. This briefing will explore novel EV battery types and applications, as well as, challenges, market milestones, and key players in the APAC region.

    Interactive Briefing: Green Steel: Will Innovation and Opportunity Outweigh the Roadblocks?

    Steel is an essential material in construction, automotive and energy sectors (including renewable energies), and the most commonly used metal in the world today. The downside being the steel industry is responsible for 7-11% of global emissions (GHG/ CO2), making the industry a major contributor to the climate crisis, adding over 3.3 million tons of CO2 annually to global emissions. Addressing APAC steel emissions is essential if the world is to meet climate goals and the industry needs to look within for solutions and specifically at green steel, the process of manufacturing steel without the use of fossil fuel.

    Cleantech Group’s Senior Associate, Materials & Chemicals, will dive deep into some of the challenges and opportunities the steel industry faces from policy initiatives to innovations.
