Which innovations will change the way we maintain and develop our grids?

How can we decentralize our energy production?

How can we re-think the utilities business model with the blockchain and smart metering technologies?

Find out what the future of energy and water utilities will look like with our "Powering The Future" tour!

Like the utilities market, Tel Aviv has experienced a big transformation these past years. The town has evolved into a hotspot for innovation driven by startups and government spending and it's the perfect place to discover how technology changes are going to impact the energy and water utilities market.

This tour is aimed at professionals in the energy and water utilities market. On day 3, we will split up the group to narrowly focus on the field of expertise of the participants: water or utilities. 

Join innovation thought leader Rik Vera in Tel Aviv and find out all about the impact of:

  • AI & Robotics
  • Decentralized production
  • Smart energy storage
  • Water economisation vs. new ways of producing clean water
  • The circular economy
  • IoT & Big Data

Full program

DAY 1 November 25

Welcome to Tel Aviv!

Time to get to know your travel companions and discover the city while doing so.

DAY 2 November 26

Technologies for future success

The robots are coming!

No really, they are coming. Not in the form of the terminator but in a task-focused way with an eye on the increased security of people working in utilities.

The first day is all about innovations that will change the way you maintain and develop your grids.

DAY 3 November 27

Utility grids of the future

Whether we're talking about water, gas or electricity, the grid of the future will be smart, connected and lean. Gone are the times of centralized production, stable demand and loyal customers. Decentralization, peak load and cost reduction are the new sheriffs in town. 

On Day 3 of our innovation program, we'll split the group into water utilities and power utilities both with their own program. In the program below, every trail is marked by either "water" of "power" to make clear which companies belong where. Here ar the main themes of the day:

- Circular economy
- Self-healing grids
- Intelligent Markets & Load Forecasting
- Decentralized production

DAY 4 November 28

Blockchain & Energy Storage: enabling decentralized business models

Blockchain is hot and not just because of Bitcoin. The technology, often labeled as "the trust machine", will enable utility providers to re-think their business models. Payments, smart contracts, energy usage, etc. everything can be stored and processed on a blockchain.

Completed with smart (energy) storage solutions, blockchain can revolutionize the way countries think about and work with their utilities. From microgrid to supergrid, from energy-consuming business to self-sustaining village, both water companies and electricity providers will be able to profit from the touchpoint between these two technologies.
