Webinar Synopsis: Energy provides the fundamental condition necessary for the evolution of civilization. Smart energy is the inevitable demand of civilization evolution. Intelligence forms the footstone for civilization and promotes energy optimization. Smart energy is a mix of human scientific and technical innovation, which is the fundamental power of exploring smart energy and core content of it. Smart energy systems process and manage main sources of energy (electrical, heat, and gas) integrated with intelligence tools to achieve an economical, efficient, resilient, and clean energy production and distribution. The corner stone of smart energy systems are smart grid which revolutionized the way electrical energy is produced, managed, and consumed. The penetration of renewable sources, electric vehicles, energy storage, smart meters, and other elements lead to a new paradigm of energy grids that changed the energy market and economy. In this seminar we will present and discuss evolvement of smart energy system, its drives, opportunities, and future. We will present some case studies and success stories of the transformation to smart energy and grid world.
