4th industrial revolution on the energy sector

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 25 aprile 2019

The fourth industrial revolution or as it is also called “Industry 4.0” is an era of innovation characterized by the transition to automated digital production, managed by intelligent systems in real time. The new type of industrial production is based on such technologies as big data, automation, blockchain, Internet of things, artificial intelligence, smart grids. It is obvious that the coming industrial reality will have a significant impact on all spheres of life. Experts of the VIII Global Energy Prize Summit`s round table devoted to the fourth industrial revolution, considered the impact of “Industry 4.0” on the energy sector, assessed the benefits of technological innovations and possible risks.
Despite the possible risks, many countries are introducing new technologies as a platform for future energy systems. In particular, in the chain of production, transportation, distribution, storage and consumption of energy. There are technologies that allow you to control energy processes from beginning to end. For example, according to Sauro Pasini, the Global Energy Prize expert, President of the International Flame Research Foundation, artificial intelligence and big data help predict the operation of the service networks, and to reduce downtime. In addition, continuous real-time data flows make it possible to create a digital version of any product or process, allowing manufacturers to predict results more accurately, identify problems more quickly and create quality products. Artificial intelligence makes an independent decision about what action to take upon detection of a failure. According to Sauro Pasini, the connection of the virtual and physical world will solve the problems before they arise. The expert gave an example of the technology of modeling the “digital twin” power plant with the parameters and data of the real installation. This simulation makes it possible to eliminate possible errors and track key performance indicators. He also noted that the fourth industrial revolution is not enough to consider only from a technological point of view. The formation of a new working class 4.0 with the skills and personal qualities necessary to work in an intelligent factory will be crucial. Only in this way it will be possible to properly implement the new realities of the industrial revolution and make technological advances available to companies and the entire civilization. It is also important to address the political norms and legal constraints of the new reality. Who will be responsible for the errors of the machine running on artificial intelligence.
The idea of the decisive role of political support for the new industrial revolution was supported by Dominique Fache, Member of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, Member of the Board of Directors of Technopark Sofia-Antipolis, Chairman of the RTF Board of Directors. In his view, technological change would be feasible only if it was backed up by political will. The expert also predicted that in the next 5-10 years there will be revolutionary changes in the energy sector. Energy storage technologies, solar energy and electric vehicles are the areas that will ensure these global transformations.
