TRANSFORMING TRANSFORMERS 2019 – Intertrust, innogy Innovation Hub, and International Energy Industry Leaders to Gather in Dusseldorf on June 4 for a Groundbreaking Conference on the Data-Driven Transformation of the Energy Industry

May 14, 2019 GMT

SAN FRANCISCO & ESSEN, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

On June 4, Intertrust Technologies, the leading provider of data rights management technology, will host Transforming Transformers, the world’s first thought leadership conference on the data-driven transformation of the energy industry. The one-day event, to be held in Dusseldorf, will bring together global energy and IT industry leaders to examine the convergence of energy, IoT and big data management. They will discuss how new and innovative digital solutions sweeping the energy sector will continue to impact business models and enable 21st Century energy services that are environmentally friendly and operate at higher margins. Speakers will explore topics in strategy, transformation, entrepreneurship, disruptive innovation portfolio management, digital privacy regulation, renewable energy and data analytics. The roster includes E.ON CEO, Johannes Teyssen, Origin Energy CEO, Frank Calabria, as well as top executives from TEPCO, innogy, Intertrust, and other leading companies.


“Every electron consumed generates information,” said Talal G. Shamoon, Intertrust’s chief executive officer. “With IoT and distributed big data systems becoming pervasive, it’s time for energy leaders to harness bits the way they once harnessed electrons. Done right, this will lead to huge margin improvements via the creation of internet-based power companies. Done wrong, or ignored, the internet will disrupt and destroy defensive actors. This is a must-attend event for energy executives wishing to lead the transformation avant garde.”

The energy industry is undergoing a tectonic shift driven by the aggressive introduction of renewable energy, deregulation and increased attention to climate impact. This shift is further fueled by the internet and new advances in high-performance and cloud computing, IoT, big data, machine learning and other advanced AI technologies. Transforming Transformers will highlight how these trends are driving change in the energy industry, and explain what major energy leaders are doing to harness the power of data-driven energy, and disrupting their business models as data becomes the most valuable asset to drive growth.
