Rejlers energy experts speak at SvD Energy Summit

Digitalization is affecting and accelerating the modernization of the energy industry. Development is going quickly. At the SvD Energy Summit on 21 September, Rejlers Sweden’s Business Manager Jenny Edfast will speak about the effects of digitalization and the industry’s innovative capacity. Thomas Pettersen, President of Rejlers Embriq and Rejlers Norway will hold a discussion about how the energy industry increase its innovative capacity and create change. Other speakers from Rejlers are Claes Böös, an expert on power lines and David Westerlund, an expert on pattern recognition.   

There are major challenges in the energy sector. The political framework agreement on a controlled transition to an entirely renewable electricity system, where the goal is 100 per cent renewable electricity production by 2040 places new demands on the industry. Integrating IT solutions to create smart grids is central to development.

-        We will talk about efficient IT tools, how digitalization provides effective grid investments and how we have begun working with pattern recognition, says Jenny Edfast, Business Manager for Energy at Rejlers.

Creating optimal power grids through pattern recognition contributes to an efficient use of the grid, an area where Rejlers is on the forefront. Through measurement data, builders of power grids can design functionality that contributes to energy-efficient solutions already from the beginning.

-        This is a very interesting area and we will also tell about our new programme for project engineering that streamlines planning and construction of power lines as an example of the advantages of digitalization, explains Claes Böös, Power Line Department Head, Rejlers.

David Westerlund at Rejlers Embriq will also talk about the large European Pattern Recognition project and the possibilities it provides from a European perspective.

Charlotte Bergqvist, Chairman of Power Circle and Thomas Pettersen, President of Rejlers Norway will be on stage together and hold a discussion under the heading “How can the energy industry increase its innovative capacity and create change?” Among other things, they will talk about the attraction that solar power, wind power and batteries have on private investors and how it is affecting the industry.

Ibrahim Baylan, Minister for Energy, Ulla Sandborgh, Director-General of Svenska Kraftnät, and Magnus Hall, President and CEO of Vattenfall will participate at the summit. Jenny Edfast and Claes Böös will speak on 21 September from 9:50 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. Thomas Pettersen will speak on the same day at 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. More information on the Energy Summit is available at:
