The Smart Electric Grid Conference, hosted by the Department of Energy, discusses sustainability, renewable energy and future directions.
The sponsorship of this conference by the Ministry is part of its ongoing efforts to develop and share experiences in areas related to the electricity sector, at a time when the sector is undergoing a radical transformation in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 through strategic initiatives to achieve the diversification of sources of electricity generation. and localization of the components of the sector in line with the objectives of the Kingdom Achieve an optimal energy balance for electricity generation by 2030 through a number of important initiatives and programs such as the National Renewable Energy Programme, which will help increase the share of renewable energy in total electricity generation capacity to approximately 50% by 2030, and the Liquid Fuels Phase-out Program, which aims to phase out approximately 95% of all liquid fuels used in the three main sectors (electricity generation) . and desalination, industry and agriculture) by 2030. This is achieved through the implementation of electrical interconnection projects in countries, as well as improving the security and reliability of electricity supply and the use of technologies. Modern and artificial intelligence in the expansion and development of its networks and applications to improve the services provided, as well as the completion of the installation of smart meters for all subscribers in the Kingdom, which exceeds 10 million subscribers.
Through officials, professionals and experts in the field, the conference will discuss the latest developments in the regulation, policy and legislation aspects of the sector in a way that promotes its growth and development, as well as the impact of smart grid technology localization initiatives and the integration of cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence systems and blockchains, cybersecurity applications and the most important data of the industrial revolution. The fourth place in this area is ways to develop business and global experience in smart grid systems.
Within the framework of the conference, meetings will be held for a number of officials of state bodies and departments, managers, specialists and experts in the field of electric power industry from around the world.
