Breakout 1

Electricity Cross Road post-COVID-19

The world's energy demand is drastically reduced due to Covid-19. International Energy Agency (IEA) states that the global energy consumption is down by 6% this year and is equivalent to India's total energy demand, meaning that the entire country is gone from the system. That shows how big the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions is.

The world which cuts off travelling whether by air or by land, due to the measures of city closure, causes the world's electricity demand to decline. Thus, The International Energy Agency expects the figure to drop around 20% considering full-year electricity demand. It is expected to decline around 5%, the biggest drop since The Great Depression of the 1930s. The time has come where the world has pushed us to stand in front of two crossroads. Become the part of this proposed solution!

ASEAN Power Generation & Renewable Energy Forum 1

Strengthening Regional Energy Security during the New Normal

Energized by increasing interconnectedness through digitalization and globalization, exacerbating environmental conditions, severe economic challenges, uneven distribution of wealth, and geopolitical crises. The region is a complex system and the rapid change among its sub-systems builds up pressure for any efforts to anticipate changes and shaping the processes of transformation within the condition of post-normality. Emerging technologies such as AI and renewable energy systems adds to the complexity of societies, and thus to the regional of ASEAN and post-normality. In foresight, there are more focus on the probable and surprising developments. The need for a new emission-free, cost-effective, and democratized energy system is obvious for the current globalization of this century.

An energy transformation to reach 100% renewable energy is envisioned in four transformational neo-carbon energy scenarios. Energy is increasingly a societal and even cultural issue - above all a security issue. where the scenarios were tested are presented. Applications brought forward for the energy security, as the world increasingly seeks to move towards a renewable energy-based society, are explored.

ASEAN POWER GENERATION & RENEWABLE ENERGY FORUM 4

ASEAN Power Grid Interconnectivity: Cross-Border Electricity Trade and its influence on Carbon Emission

Energy Industry Governance are the most important issue nowadays to future of sustainable development growth from the UN. The Energy Regulatory Commissioner of each country will give insight of the development plan from each panelist for developing a low carbon emissions trajectory to mitigate climate change and for doing so urgently. What is needed is a transformation of the energy sector and an ‘energy transition’. Such a revolution can only be achieved through effective energy governance nationally, regionally, and globally. But frequently such governance is constrained by the tensions between energy security, climate change mitigation and energy poverty.

At national level, there is a chasm between what is needed and what governments do ‘on the ground’, while regionally and globally, collective action challenges have often presented insurmountable obstacles. The session will discuss what forms of energy law, regulation and governance are most needed to overcome these challenges.

The state of monitoring IT systems, including servers and services, has continuously improved. Monitoring tools and practices in the cloud-native world of microservices and Kubernetes are excellent at monitoring based on time-series metric data. These tools aren't designed specifically for monitoring IoT devices or physical processes, but the constituent parts—labeled series of metrics, visualization, and alerts—all can apply to IoT monitoring. You will learn from all speakers of this session with performance of each Hybrid Energy Power Plant, their level of productivity and engagement with just a few clicks.
