Track PS1: AI in Power and Energy

Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Power and Energy Industry

Artificial Intelligence (AI)/ Machine Learning (ML) in power and energy industry is evolving for demand forecasting, load balancing, predictive maintenance, renewable energy integration, energy storage optimization, fault detection and diagnosis, and so on. By analyzing real-time and historical data, AI/ML algorithms can make accurate predictions, optimize energy supply and demand, and improve the efficiency, reliability, and sustainability of power and energy systems. However, successful applications of AI/ML in power and energy industry are few, in contrast to other areas, e.g., ChatGPT, Watson, etc. The successful application of AI/ML in this field requires collaboration between stakeholders, high-quality data, regulatory compliance, and ethical considerations. Overall, the use of AI/ML in power and energy industry has the potential to significantly improve the way we produce, distribute, and consume energy, creating a more sustainable future for all.

Track PS2: Hydrogen Energy for Future Grids

Hydrogen Generation and Storage for Transportation and Grid Integration

With the ever-increasing penetration of variable and fluctuating renewable energy (solar and wind), the need for storage of energy is on the rise. The elegant idea of storing renewable energy in an energy carrier as Hydrogen which is storable, transportable, and utilizable offers a solution. Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element and has many uses including but not limited to a way of storing electricity, heating, fuel for transport, and can also be used as a raw material in industry. Large scale production, storage and transportation of hydrogen involves a set of challenging technologies that are receiving international interest as demands for renewable energy resources increase.  Although Australia has the potential to lead this technology in the near future, hydrogen is a new technology and the industry has not widely explored the impacts of renewable hydrogen on power grids.  This has been the stimulus for many recent initiatives, for example the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC), which is a world-first pilot project to produce and transport liquid hydrogen from Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, Australia to Japan by a liquid hydrogen tanker. This panel session aims to explore the production of hydrogen energy using surplus energy produced by renewable energy resources and effective ways of storage of hydrogen energy.
