Conference on energy transition and Internet of things at l'X
Nicolas Leterrier, vice-president for innovation at Schneider Electric, will come on Monday, November, 3, for the conference cycle on energy and environment organised at École Polytechnique to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21).
"How Internet of Things is changing the energy environment?" will be the topic of the conference presented by the vice-president for innovation at Schneider Electric, Nicolas Leterrier, on Monday, November, 3 at 4pm at École Polytechnique.
This presentation is part of the conference cycle on energy and environment organised by the Coriolis Institute to prepare the Paris Climate Conference 2015 (COP21) and the debates on energy transition.
This cycle began in September 2014 with a talk given by Jean-François Minster, Science Director for Total, and then with a conference by Pierre-Etienne Franc, Air Liquide's Director of Advanced Business and Technologies.
Nicolas Leterrier, vice-president for innovation at Schneider Electric : "Starting from the need to reduce our CO² emission by a factor of 2 while the energy demand will double at the same time, I will explain how Schneider Electric has, somehow, been operating over the last decade its transition towards the Internet of Things and one of its most immediate application in helping individuals, communities, industrials and cities to become smarter energy consumers. This includes smart demand plus smart supply plus demand response mechanisms to achieve a smarter grid avoiding blackouts.
I will try to elaborate on how the competitive environment has been evolving towards the extensive integration of customers and business partners in business and value-added processes and how the R&D capabilities have been widely open to new ecosystems.
Conclusion on how the convergence of Information Technology and operational technology are today leading to a more complex environment which is a huge opportunity of operational efficiency for all the stakeholders."
Conference "How Internet of Things is changing the energy environment?" - Monday, November 3, 2014 at 4pm - Becquerel Amphitheater
Next conference on November 17 2014 at 4pm with Professor Gilles Bœuf, President of the Natural History National Museum in Paris.
The Coriolis conferences are meant for everyone to understand without need of a huge scientific background. The conference lasts for about 45 minutes and is followed by questions with the spokesperson.
This conference is open to everyone: researchers from all fields, students, PhDs, post-docs, staff members, visitors.
