  • Distribution of energy transformation costs in society – a new tariff mechanism
  • New technologies in energy
  • How we deal with the structural problems of the Polish energy industry, eg summer peaks, filling the gap after the power plants are turned off

10:45 – 12:00 Rising prices for electricity

Debate:

  • The structure of energy production and energy mix are the basis of shaping electricity prices
  • How to get out of freezing prices in 2020 and later years? What will the consequences be?
  • The vision of industrial energy in the context of the increase of energy prices for small and medium enterprises
  • Energy Plus Program
  • Freezing energy prices in 2019. Compensation policies

  • Rising heat prices

12:00 – 12:45 Networking break

12:45 – 14:00 Implementation of the closed circuit economy postulates

Debate

  • Energy use of waste in the production of electricity and fuel
  • Investments in alternative fuels with a constant increase in energy demand – using Poland and CEE as an example
  • The impact of energy price increases on the increased number of enterprises’ investments in energy efficiency
  • Technologies for the production of alternative fuels. R&D implementations in the sector
  • CHP plants are moving away from coal for gas and renewable energy. What are our national perspectives?
  • Is power to gas technology a chance for a better use of renewable energy sources?

  • Total construction and operating costs (LCOE). What source of risk?
  • LWR (Light Water Reactor) vs. SMR (Small Modular Reactor). Which solution is the best for Poland?
  • Who and why will it be a technology partner to build a nuclear power plant in Poland?
  • If not banks, who will help finance nuclear energy?
  • Small nuclear reactors SMR with a capacity of 200-300 MW. The first Polish step towards nuclear energy?

14:50 – 15:45 Financing transformation in the energy sector

Debate

  • The development of innovation from regional resources
  • EU support in financing the development of the energy sector
  • Modernisation fund. How to use it as the largest beneficiary (approx. 44%)?
  • If not banks, who will help finance nuclear energy?

15:45 Lunch

 

 

Day II (7th November)

9:00-14:15 Innovation in the energy sector

9:00 – 10:10 Development of distribution networks

11:30 – 12:10 Networking break

12:10 – 13:30 Direction of smart grid

Debate:

  • What does Smart Metering look like in Poland in relation to the commitment in the new Energy Policy to install 80% of smart metering recipients until 2026? Will the EC forget about Poland’s commitment to fulfill this condition until the end of 2020?
  • Which Smart Grid features are most needed in Poland?
  • What did particular companies do in the field of Smart Metering, what are their experiences with pilot installations and how does it work? What savings does it bring? – examples of Poland and CEE
  • Real time energy accounting and balancing towards energy efficiency
  • Advanced analytics and data correlations from ICT, OT (Operational Technology) and external systems – implementations in CEE
  • LTE 450 network with increased availability parameters as a base for building Smart Grid in Poland
  • Expanding service quality through the construction of two-speed architecture
  • Cybersecurity of energy networks – what security standards should be adopted taking into account IT and physical security?
