MeteoGroup hosts two Round Tables at Accenture Innovation Summit.

On November 2nd, 2500 innovation leaders gather in Utrecht for the Accenture Innovation Summit 2018. The annual Innovation Summit aims to inspire, to connect, and to drive innovation collaboration to improve the way the world works and lives. Visitors can enjoy live pitches by the awards finalists or can be inspired by the speakers. In addition, they can participate in in-depth discussions with corporate innovators, start-ups, investors and opinion leaders, e.g. in one of 30 Round Table Discussions, of which MeteoGroup will be hosting two:

1. Climate Theme: Optimizing grid capacity by providing better predictions for the early detection of congestion in electricity grids.

Transmission capacity of overhead power lines is dependent on cooling capacity, which is heavily influenced by the weather. Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) enables Transmission and Distribution System Operators to stabilise their systems by avoiding and managing congestion. With DLR grid managers can analyse the natural cooling of power lines in various weather situations and make reliable assessments on how to optimize the utilisation of power line capacity. The growing role of renewable energy generation, up to 100% of capacity, makes forecasting critical for maintaining the reliability of the grid. Improving the accuracy and the confidence level of forecasts is critical to the goal of reducing the conventional reserve capacity, and will result in substantial savings in capital and operating costs.

2. Mobility Theme: Autonomous driving and bad weather, that's the real challenge.

How can we create intelligent systems to help self-driving cars drive safely in ALL weather conditions. A nice-to-have or need-to-have?

Join industry experts, innovators and opinion leaders at one of our round tables.
However, seating is limited, so register now!
