The event will be a unique exhibition of innovative digital and industrial technology all designed with a common goal: to improve efficiencies, lower operating costs and enhance competitive advantage for our customers. Innovations that advance the digital grid of the future and integration of renewable energy, intelligent manufacturing along with software-defined machines to smart sensors, cloud services and smart buildings.
National and international speakers, including Otto Preiss, ABB Group Senior Vice President Digital will outline the impact of digitalisation on the bottom line and how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and ABB Ability solutions can drive operational excellence.
The important topic of “How to achieve 50 percent renewable energy without comprising grid stability” will provide an ideal platform for a lively debate during the morning plenary session. Leaders in industry, utilities and government will feature and initiate discussion about the policy setting and technologies needed to maintain reliable power supply and help Australia grow its economy while meeting its international commitments to emission reduction.
