MKAI Technical Forum – AI and Environmental Sustainability: Part 3 AI For Smarter Energy Management

Theme: Sustainability

A Community Event from MKAI

Location: Virtual
Format: Talks

Series Rationale: The race to protect the earth gets more critical every year. The world is set to see its warmest five years on record – in a trend which is likely to continue – and is not on track to meet agreed targets to keep global temperature increase well below 2 °C or at 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. Atmospheric CO2 concentrations showed no signs of peaking and have continued to increase to new records. The Emissions Gap Report 2019 showed that the cuts in global emissions required per year from 2020 to 2030 are close to 3% for a 2 °C target and more than 7% per year on average for the 1.5 °C goal of the Paris Agreement. Organizations and governments are waking up, taking action, but the pace is just not matching up. We need to piggyback on exponential technologies if we are to ride out this wave successfully.

Series Objectives: Through this series of three MKAI Technical Forums, we will learn more about the massive opportunities on the horizon to shape markets, protect habitats and influence consumer behaviours using environmental data and artificial intelligence.

March Forum Objectives: At the MKAI technical forum in March, we seek to discover the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and projects that are producing practical solutions for the Smart Grid. A new generation of energy networks will be able to make efficient use of renewable energy sources, support real-time and efficient demand response, as well as the large-scale deployment of electric vehicles (EVs). We will learn more about the AI techniques and methodologies that will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the way we manage and allocate energy
