The conference is a celebration of the convenience of electricity and investigates new ways to “do more with the energy you use” in the age approaching the 4IR. The productive use of a strategic resource by an ever expanding base of consumers in both the Industrial and business sector means that South Africa must grow in innovation and resilience amidst challenges facing the Energy Sector.
Energy Solutions for the Cities of the 4th Industrial Revolution
In line with World Bank initiative for universal access to energy and sustainable energy for all, various solutions are being implemented and monitored for their efficiency.
Among the solutions for increasing universal access to electricity are off grid electrification such as solar, diesel and hybrid systems. The humble home, from Cape to Cairo, from Beijing to Fez or London to Calcutta, remain the focus of energy use that is critical to most people.
With the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) increasingly impinging on the Energy Sector, the manner in which Industry and Commerce could operate might be different. Communities and Commerce will be ‘hyper-connected’. Increasing use of Internet of Things (IoT), big data, robotics, mobile devices and artificial intelligence will be relied upon.
This already influenced and changes the way Commerce and Industry relates to the Electricity grids.
