Welcome & Introduction Analytics Alliander by Daan Schut, Alliander

Daan Schut, Director of Asset Management, will present Liander’s vision about Analytics. What is the added value of transforming Big Data into actionable insights ? How can it contribute to a more efficient and cost-effective way of Asset Management? Is there a relationship between Analytics and social responsibility through cost-reduction?

Daan Schut will explain why Alliander invest so much in the strategic competence of data driven grid operator and into extracting meaningful insights from the different (real-time) data gathered along the network. Daan will share his view on how to organize efficiently this domain into a Utility company.

10:00-10:30

Improve Predictability of Asset Performance, Turning BIG DATA into one Version of the Truth. Johan Ferket, Stork

With a great diversity of assets, tools, applications, systems and new technology on site, Asset Owners are forced to take actions to find the hidden value of physical assets and ensure continuity of their processes.

That is why operators are willing to invest Asset Performance Management solutions to create value through increased reliability and reduce maintenance cost. At the same time they are looking for answers within BIG DATA coming from multiple assets, processes and systems. Technology, software and solution providers in one proposition is a key success factor to make it happen! Last but not least, the end user is looking for Asset Performance Management solutions that can analyze data coming from multiple sources in order to close the maintenance and reliability improvement loop.

The presentation will cover the following topics:
- What is Asset Performance Management?
- Key Challenges in APM
- CMMS/EAM as an Improvement Engine to grow in maturity
- The Industrial Internet of Things & Big Data: Implementing and using APM Solutions as the logical next step forwards to achieve operational Excellence

Enabling Sustainable Smart Markets: Electric Vehicles as a Rosetta Stone in the New Energy Economy. Wolf Ketter, Erasmus University

The need for sustainable energy is one of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Decentralized production from renewable sources, electric mobility, and related advances are shifting the focus toward the distribution grid, and away from traditional power systems where central, large-scale generation of electricity follows inelastic consumer demand. New types of markets and decision support can enable new forms of dynamic electricity trading that leverage real-time consumption information and that use price signals to incentivize sustainable consumption behaviors.

In this regard, electric vehicles can be the Rosetta Stone for the electricity grid by compensating volatility of supply, because of the storage ability of their batteries. We need to develop energy collaborations in a highly intelligent, analytics-based fashion to create the smart city of the future, where the smart market becomes the smart sustainable market. In 2020, 50 billion devices will be connected and we are facing a cognitive overload. We desperately need intelligent decision support that is driven by analytics!

The Connected Home. From Sensor Data to Customer Value. Jim Anning, British Gas

British Gas Connected Home is an Internet of Things success story. In this talk Jim will outline how his team work with data from the UK's largest network of Smart Meters and data from Hive, the UK's most popular Connected Home product to bring significant value to customers.

Using real-life examples of applying Data Science at scale, Jim will describe the approach BG Connected Home have taken to making sense of this data and delivering real-time, data-driven solutions to millions of customers.

Analytics for Condition Management. Rob Ross, TenneT

Within the electricity and gas sectors, many assets are getting old and uncertainty arises concerning their condition and life time expectancy. Do they need to be maintained on a higher frequency? Do they need to be replaced? What are the cost-effective grid optimizations that can help the assets to live longer ? Those are some of the questions to be answered.

Nowadays sensors along the network gather huge amount of data that can be used to get some insight in the asset health. Processing, validating, and transforming these data into the right actionable insight has become an art that can enormously increase efficiency and reduce costs by optimizing maintenance and investments in the network.

Rob Ross will share his experience within TenneT on this area and show us how they developed an advanced way of assessing their approach of the health index of critical components within their high voltage network transmission grid. With this methodology, TenneT is able to take aims at prioritizing actions and mitigate risks in the high voltage network.
