How can we apply technology such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets to address humanity’s grand challenges? 

For Singularity U this is core business: they educate, empower and inspire today’s businesses to use the impact of converging exponential technologies and human insight to create sustainable disruptive change to the businesses and to society. 

Jan-Peter Doomernik, Senior Business Developer of the Dutch Grid company Enexis and alumni of the Singularity University Leadership programme, will share his insights on the impact of exponential technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets. 

Why is a grid company interested in exponential technologies?

Jan-Peter says: “To be ready for the future, we must explore new and different infrastructures. From our perspective, these new infrastructures have to be caring, include everybody and should adhere to our core values: affordable, sustainable, reliable and secure.

Jan-Peter, who presented at Europe’s largest blockchain conference - BIC17 - and excited the audience with crazy changes they can expect in the coming 20 years, is also part of European Utility Week’s Initiate! taskforce.  

In this webinar Jan-Peter will present the impact of exponential technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence and autonomous assets on the energy sector, disruptive infrastructures with which no company can compete, machine to machine economy, blind spots and paradigm shifts, tangible transition and energy and mobility.

The webinar challenges the audience to refresh, reset, reframe, re-imagine and re-engage! 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  1. How to think 10x bigger to change the world 
  2. How to get going and moving: Education, empowerment, inspiration 
  3. Experience at least three paradigm shifts while listening

In order to create a low-carbon society conforming with COP21Paris Summit and to create storage by balancing all energy forms versus each other, Norwegian demand response company XTN Group Holding has developed the XTN system during the past six years.

The data hub aims to change the current value chain in the energy industry from today's 'producer to consumer' with a new value chain 'consumer to producer' ie. empowering consumers by digitalisation, where consumers criteria for buying energy is based on individual consumer values in addition to prize, executed by consumer choice of energy form by interoperability in the energy mix.

Interoperability is the key functionality to make consumer choice happen.

In this webinar, attendees heard how XTN Hub is the only datahub in the world that can make consumer choice happen in the next five years and as such will function as the refinery on the electricity side which makes 'refinery economics' possible for a combined electricity and petroleum business – ie. optimising the owner's profit in between consumers and producers.

This will balance the electricity grid with any of the other energy forms at household site, particularly gas, preventing negative prices and fall in credit ratings.
