Mr. Carvallo's keynote will explore how in the coming years the electric industry will evolve dramatically in how it makes infrastructure investments and what products and services it will offer. Historically, electric utilities had been extending already existing grid networks and offering services with very little variation to the infrastructure needed, to the business model and to the customer offerings.
He will share his vision of what will happen as grid optimization becomes center to the Smart Grid investments driven by the proliferation of electric vehicles, distributed generation (e.g., solar PV), and distributed energy storage. We will see a re-design of the grid networks, the business models, and the customer offerings. Terms like Islanding, De-coupling, V2G, B2G, H2G, Dynamic Modulation, Predictive Volt/VAR, Demand Action, Predictive FDIR, and Advanced Power FACTOR will become more and more popular.
