Date: August 5, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Cloud computing is known for virtually providing unlimited, sharable computing resource on demand with a more cost effectively approach than traditional one. The technology has been discussed for a while in power and energy community. With the increasing grid complexity, it is timely to revisit cloud computing in this panel to have a better understanding about what impact cloud computing has made and could make in the power grid domain, what is current maturity of cloud computing to enable power grid applications in terms of security and efficiency. To achieve these goals, this panel will bring leading cloud experts from service provider, utility, national laboratory and academia to discuss the state-of- the-art techniques and analytical service, what are the existing applications, lessen learned and the benefit, what are the barriers and solutions, what are the other suitable applications, as well as the difference between a public or a private cloud.
