Webinaire : Research & Development and Emerging Technologies to Foster Clean Energy Transition
La Faculté du Génie Electrique et d’Informatique et le Laboratoire de recherche L2CSP de l’Université Mouloud MAMMERI de Tizi-ouzou organisent un Webinaire qui sera animé par Dr. Chaouki Ghenai (Maître de Conférences, Université de Sharjah, Émirats Arabes Unis).
Thème du webinaire:
Research & Development and Emerging Technologies to Foster Clean Energy Transition
The future of the energy sector will be sustainable and cleaner (decarbonization), smart and intelligent (digitalization), and based on distributed and connected energy systems (decentralization). The decarbonization or transition to low-carbon energy systems is based on the shift from traditional fossil fuel-based energy systems to clean energy systems using renewable resources. This shift consists in the transition from high-carbon to low-and zero carbon fuels energy carriers; the integration of more energy efficient systems; the development of innovative and sustainable energy systems for transportation, and the development of carbon sequestration and storage technologies. The transition to digital energy systems is needed for energy generation, transmission, distribution, and consumption. The digitalization of energy systems will include the deployment of smart metering systems, big data and analytics, internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence, machine learning, remote control and optimization methods and strategies. It will also comprise connectivity and integration; cyber security; new business models, as well as new tools for customer engagement in the energy systems (block chain for energy sector). The transition to digital technologies is a key factor for intelligent, flexible, reliable, and responsive energy systems. Moreover, the decentralization of energy systems is crucial for the transition to distributed generation using renewable energy resources, energy storage, and micro-grids. Decentralization is actually very important for the diversification of energy resources, energy security (reduce risks of energy costs), improvement in energy conversion efficiency (generation close to point of consumption), augmentation of resource efficiency, and environmental sustainability, in addition to providing new opportunities for business and economic growth. This presentation will review the 3-Ds energy model, research projects to support the energy transition, and new energy emerging technologies.
La conférence aura lieu le lundi 10 mai 2021 à 10h00. Le Webinaire sera modéré par Mr Mansouri Rachid, Professeur au département d’électrotechnique, Université Mouloud Mammeri de Tizi-ouzou.
