Sustainable Generation & Storage Overview

As sustainable energy increasingly features more prominently on the agendas of ASEAN governments and the private sector globally, the role of utilities in securing a lower carbon future continue to be explored.

A free-to-attend, full day of panel discussions and interviews with technical presentations and whitepapers to download, the Sustainable Generation & Storage day provides attendees a unique opportunity to gain in-depth insights. This session will showcase the technologies enabling ASEAN’s transition away from fossil fuels, not only in generation, but equally as importantly, the different storage solutions that will enable greater RE penetration.

The Roadmap to Sustainable Generation

The transformation of global energy systems needs to accelerate with limiting climate change and fostering sustainable growth. While recent years have seen a rise in the adoption of renewable energy globally, this has been more sporadic in the ASEAN region. Vietnam is among the top three nations leading the shift to renewables with wind and solar in Asia Pacific, and Indonesia plans to increase the proportion of renewable power in its 2021-2030 national electricity plan to at least 48%, from 30% in the 2019-2028 plan. But others are still trailing behind due to a myriad of factors.

Renewables are not a quick fix and utility-scale implementation will require significant planning, investment and time. Because the transition will not occur overnight, existing energy infrastructure must be optimised to help resolve intermittencies in supply as more renewables enter the grid. They should also be designed to accommodate new and cleaner energy sources such as hydrogen, ammonia and biomass. Given its current reliance on thermal energy, the region must consider opportunities to reduce carbon emissions in existing and planned thermal assets while continuing the drive to zero carbon.

This panel discussion, hosted by Mitsubishi Power, will explore the prospects for sustainable energy in ASEAN and the power generation solutions that will be critical to transitioning systems toward a low-carbon future while upholding energy security.

Topics of discussion:

  • The current energy landscape, challenges and opportunities for adoption of low-carbon energy solutions including renewables
  • The role of existing thermal power generation assets in paving the way for more sustainable energy systems
  • Prospects of alternative fuels such as hydrogen, biomass and ammonia in driving the clean energy goals of ASEAN nations
  • Potential of renewables in ASEAN and how can they support the SDG7 goals of affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

Technical Discussion: Accessing Uniper’s Expertise Using Mixed and Augmented Reality

The development of digital and virtual video technologies enables power companies to engage the support of international experts in a more sustainable way. With illustrations from a case study, this technical webinar will outline how Uniper delivers world-class engineering insights remotely, conveniently, and with minimal resources.

These insights provide utilities with a detailed status report of their assets and wider access to Uniper’s broad expertise while delivering their outages more cost-effectively and sustainably, avoiding flights and travel across continents.

Case Study
SUR CCGT in the Middle East was having a historical problem with their HP Bypass Control valves on all units that were causing outages and lost generation. Following the subsequent overhaul of their asset’s faulty HP bypass control valve, SUR relied on Uniper’s engineering proficiency and familiarity with the plant processes to develop a qualified inspection plan and assess the contract work accordingly. The inspection was carried out using the Virtual Engineer solution where a member of SUR’s site team was equipped with Uniper’s Microsoft HoloLens device – a pair of augmented reality glasses. A remote engineer from the UK then directed him to ensure that SUR has met all quality standards and legal and statutory obligation was adhered to, which resulted in SUR overcoming their problem.

Hydrogen as the Starting Point for Green Fuels

As the world aims to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, some of the key solutions are hydrogen and synthetic fuels derived from renewable energy using Power-to-X technology. However, while many governments and private companies are putting significant resources into developing technologies, there remains some proactive steps to be taken such as having the proper regulatory framework in place, adequate carbon pricing setup and providing roadmaps for utilization of green fuels.

Join this webinar hosted by Man Energy Solutions as they discuss the optimal advantage of tapping into hydrogen as a solution for critical energy challenges. The panel discussion will also delve into the concept of sector coupling by integrating renewables in developed industry, energy, and mobility infrastructures with Power-to-X solutions using green hydrogen.

Discussion topics:

  • Understanding the hydrogen economy – Using electrolysers to convert into “green” hydrogen
  • Power to X, conversion of green energy into synthetic fuels like SNG
  • Achieve decarbonisation goals and sector coupling with Greener renewable fuels using Power to X
