Huawei summit for better smart grids
Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, hosted its second Global Power Industry Summit in Brisbane, Australia from August 21 to 22, 2014. Themed “Innovative ICT Empowers Better Connected Smart Grids,” the event gathered representatives from power companies, industry organizations and the academic community from around the world to share insights and best practices on building connected smart grids and explore upcoming trends in the power industry.
The event included a number of keynote presentations and roundtable sessions including the first keynote session themed “Future Electricity Needs a Better Connected Smart Grids,” where executives from an Australian power company and Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation delivered insightful presentations on using smart grids to achieve enhanced response time and integrating IT and OT (Operation Technology) for power grids.
As part of the event, Huawei and IDC also released a joint report titled “Innovative ICT Empower a Better Connected Smartgrid,” and Christopher Holme, Senior Analyst of International Data Corporation (IDC) spoke about the role of innovative ICT technology in building better connected power grids.
“A better connected smartgrid has four major features. Firstly, it should be interactive and compatible with renewable energy resource, then it requires a smarter dispatch that could adjust the electricity tariffs that regulate power consumption demands. At the meantime, IT and OT will be coordinated in the future that ask for a consolidated grid, and there is one pre-condition underlying these features, which is a robust and self-healing capability. A better Smart Grid will be a fully-connected grid that provides electricity everywhere at every second, and utilizes every watt,” said Mr. David He, President of Marketing and Solution Sales, Huawei Enterprise Business Group.
