Tech-driven Energy Transition
Unifying AI, Automation, and Digital Twins through the Industrial Work Surface
Date: 29th June
Time: 15.30 CET
The energy transition is accelerating a trend that was already well underway in the oil and gas sector ― the proliferation of remote and smaller-scale energy assets (e.g., gas compressors, wind turbines, solar farms, DAC units) that require continuous monitoring and attention to ensure they’re operating in the most efficient, effective and low-carbon manner. This trend places increasing stress on industry workforces to be able to manage a growing portfolio of assets with stable or declining staff levels. Rather than relying on more people to get the job done, automation and digitalization offer a more efficient approach, particularly in the areas of:
- Digitally arming field workforces with the information and tools they need to perform their jobs most effectively
- Applying advanced analytics and AI to improve predictability and to avoid potential disruptions
- Leveraging digital representations of assets (i.e., digital twins) to advance from onsite to remote autonomous operations and to continuously optimize asset performance
