New technologies, security and the grid
In a world where information is having an ever-increasing impact on the nature of the grid, what are the implications of new technologies for data security and utilities’ business models?
Drawing on his 20 years’ of experience, Martin Hauske, Asia Pacific Energy Segment Sales Leader at Nokia Networks, considers whether utilities, distribution grid operators and technology providers are working in isolation, and how they can come together. Martin discusses how a standardization of communication protocols could help companies move forward. While 5G and fast communication present questions of security, Martin describes the security solutions that can be applied to utilities. He looks at how technology and regulation can play together and believes utility companies must evolve in their role. Finally, Martin tells us how he is inspired by the ‘aggressive visions’ he has seen at the Singapore International Energy Week.
