Description:

What are the big issues keeping our energy leaders awake at night and busy by day?

Come and hear Asa Cox from Intela AI, James Muir from Callaghan Innovation and Tina Schirr from BusinessNZ Energy Council speaking on the burning energy issues in New Zealand.

The 2018 World Energy Council’s Issue Maps show how decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation are now defining trends.

Digitalisation is one of the biggest movers in the issues monitor findings over the last five years. Change is happening, and fast.

Current success by New Zealand’s technology and innovation companies comes off the back of sustained past investment in education, training and R&D. But research by Callaghan Innovation shows New Zealand lagging in current investment into research and development projects.

Tina will share the highlights of the this year’s New Zealand Energy Issues Maps and the emerging trends, energy leaders' critical uncertainties and issues that require priority action.

James will demonstrate how to use the powerful messages from the maps for the energy sector, particularly the opportunities for energy businesses from Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Blockchain, Cloud and Internet of Things and how we can increase the energy sector’s investment in technology R&D.

Asa will present exciting case studies on the application of data science and machine learning in the global energy sector, near term opportunities to harness the power of AI and on how to select business cases that prove value to stakeholders.
