Reimagining Utility of the FutureHosted by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the Conference of the Electric Power Supply Industry (CEPSI) returns to Kuala Lumpur after 22 years, with the theme 'Reimagining Utility of the Future'. The theme underpins the current reality of how the electric supply industry is transforming in response to acceleration of technology disruptions, economic shifts, evolving sustainability and regulatory requirements, and increasing customer expectations.
Siemens - The Diamond Sponsor for CEPSI 2018
Siemens Malaysia will be supporting the host - one of its most trusted and valued partners - in the highly-anticipated regional event as the Diamond Sponsor. The collaboration between both leading corporations signifies a joint commitment towards further developing Malaysia's digital agenda in fields of renewable and sustainable energy.
With over 1,500 participants from over 30 countries, CEPSI 2018 is the perfect occasion to convene, share and exchange ideas, and learn from some of the best minds to conjure winning formulas that would help shape a promising future for our nation.
Technical SessionsThe Technical Sessions at CEPSI 2018 is the ideal platform for delegates to share case studies, on-site lessons and experience, overviews of recent technologies, design strategies, industry best practices and many more. Siemens will be presenting in the following categories.
Sustainability and Green Energy
Energy storage (eg: Battery, etc.)
This category will cover energy storage, including technology, development and implementation, challenges and related case studies to wholy understand the implications of actions.
Demand Side Management (DSM) & Energy Efficiency (EE)
DSM generally refers to all activities at the consumer end to use and save energy efficiently. It involves the use of more efficient appliances, products and services; shifting and balancing the load utilization to tap cheaper energy costs period.
Generation & Future Alternatives
Power Plant Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Optimisation and Reliability
Knowledge sharing, best practices and benchmarking in power plant systems upgrading and optimisation in operation and maintenance (O&M) works to improve plant efficiency, productivity and flexibility.
Power Generation and Plant Technologies (Gas, Coal, Nuclear, etc.)
The development and advancement of various technologies utilised in power plant in areas of technologies related to gas turbine, steam turbine, generator, boiler, hydro plant, nuclear plant, and balance of plant.
Power Generation Planning, Financing and Development
Understanding how financing works in the power generation industry is crucial in order to fully maximize the investments made by unlocking the whole value of the assets and infrastructure.
Transmission & Future Grid
Power Transmission Technology, Design & Development (HVAC & MVDC)
This category covers the advancements and developments in power transmission technologies, including primary substation equipment designs and standards, new electric measurement technology, efficient transmission tower designs, MVDC/FACTS technology and devices, cable technology and supergrid technology.
Transmission Grid and RE Integration
This category will cover matters such as renewable generator modeling (wind, solar PV), bi-directional power flow management in the grid system, energy variability and intermittency management, and application of grid-connected energy and battery storage.
Distribution & Advance Network
Distribution System & RE Integration
The increasing adoption of renewables and energy storage systems poses specific challenges to their integration into the distribution system. With this in mind, this category encompasses matters such as bi-directional power flow management, energy variability and intermittency management, and Distributed Energy Resources.
Smart Grid & New Technology
Distributed Energy Resources (DER) & Micro grid Technologies
This category covers two broad subject matters:
- Virtual Power Plants (VPP) and its components, including Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and Microgrids
- Voltage VAR Optimisation (VVO), which is the process of managing voltage levels and reactive power to achieve more efficient grid operation.
