La French Tech Australia

Enabling AI and algorithmic potential to accelerate the energy transition (15/06/23)

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry is delighted to invite you to its upcoming Energy Series event which will explore how next-generation digital technologies, such as algorithms and AI, can play a significant role in the energy transition towards a net-zero carbon future.

Join FACCI for this Neoen Australia-sponsored-event at the Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre​ (AMDC), a facility kindly provided by Swinburne University of Technology. This event is also the result of a collaboration with La French Tech Australia.

The energy sector’s transition efforts have primarily focused on hardware, such as inventing new low-carbon infrastructure to replace legacy carbon-intensive systems. However, the introduction of next-generation digital technologies could also become essential enablers to accelerate the energy transition. During the panel discussion, several critical questions surrounding the role of algorithms and AI in the energy transition will be addressed:

How can key players unlock AI and IT’s potential in this domain? How is research/academia working along with companies to accelerate the introduction of more efficient algorithms?

Our esteemed speakers will shed light on where and how new algorithms can interact with carbon-intensive processes, and the need for “smart” algorithms, such as Artificial Intelligence, in comparison to “traditional” algorithms used in energy production and storage.

During this exciting event, you will have the opportunity to hear from a diverse and knowledgeable panel of experts. The panel will be comprised of:

  • Jean-Christophe Cheylus, Energy Management Director at Neoen Australia,
  • James Colbert, Partner – Energy & Technology Advisory at KPMG,
  • Michael Rosetta, Business Unit Manager – ACT Lighting at Omexom Australia,
  • Mehdi Seyedmahmoudian, Associate Professor and Director of Siemens-Swinburne Energy Transition (SSET) Hub, Swinburne University of Technology.

Lisa Zembrodt, Principal and Senior Director of Schneider Electric’s Sustainability Business division in the Pacific Zone will moderate this discussion.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to participate in an insightful panel discussion and network with industry leaders. Register now to secure your spot at this event and join us in better understanding the energy transition towards a more sustainable future!
