A media conference on "Top 10 Trends of Digital Power" was organised recently through a virtual platform, said a press release on Tuesday.
Huawei Vice-president and President of Digital Power Product Line Zhou Taoyuan shared insights on the future trends of digital power at the conference.
Highlighting the 5th anniversary of the Paris Agreement, he first pointed out that carbon neutrality is the top priority task in the contemporary world. Since more than 110 countries have committed to the "Carbon Neutrality" goal, it is important to modernize the energy infrastructure and accelerate the transformation from fossil energy to renewable energy.
The entire industry needs to provide high importance to increase investment in digital energy infrastructure, which is the digital world's foundation.
Dr Fang Liangzhou, vice-president and CMO of Huawei Digital Power Product Line, introduced Huawei's top 10 trends of digital power, including power digitalization; green energy for all; efficient E2E architecture; aI boost; simple and convergent; autonomous driving; comprehensive and smart energy; intelligent ESS; super-fast charging and safe and reliable.
"Digital Power will move towards simple and convergent network, including architecture convergent, simplified form, and prefabricated modules. Energy devices will become compact, lightweight, and modularized." said, Dr. Fang Liangzhou.
Huawei emphasised the innovative integration of digital and energy technologies that enable intelligent management of power generation, power transmission, power distribution, power storage, and power consumption, substantially improving energy efficiency.
Green energy can also help the ICT industry to reduce carbon emissions. In the future, Huawei aims to build a "zero-carbon network" and "zero-carbon data centers." Huawei proposed the trend of efficient E2E architecture, which can improve energy efficiency in terms of architecture and system.
Huawei also believes that AI will be widely applied to the energy field and will replace experts' functions to enable independent system collaboration. As the energy industry gradually transforms to digitalization, the traditional manual O&M mode will be changed, and the energy network O&M will achieve autonomous driving.
The traditional energy system will be changed from Silo architecture and isolated management to comprehensive smart management, achieving the goal of E2E collaboration, including power generation, power distribution, and transformation as well as power consumption.
In terms of energy storage, common lithium batteries will gradually evolve into an intelligent Energy Storage System (ESS), which will maximize the battery potential. It is also worth noting that people can enjoy super-fast charging anytime, anywhere.
