Focus is on covering three Ds of energy sector: Ziad Al-Sati

Siemens Gas and Power (GP) is a global pacesetter in energy, helping customers to meet the demands of industries and societies. At the 24th World Energy Congress, Siemens showcased their broad competencies across the entire energy value chain - for utilities, independent power producers, transmission system operators, and the oil and gas industry.

Siemens showcased their progress on four main topics while at 24th WEC:

  • Securing energy supply
  • Making energy greener
  • Making digitalization happen
  • Managing complexity in the grid

Devdiscourse catches up with Mr. Ziad Al-Sati, Vice President Controls and Digitalization, Middle East Region during his visit to the 24th World Energy Congress 2019 in Abu Dhabi. In an exclusive interview with our Associate Editor Mr. Siddheshwar Shukla, Mr. Ziad Al-Sati shares his views on a wide range of issues related to the energy sector and the transforming world energy scenario. The Edited Excerpts:

Siddheshwar Shukla: How has been your experience in World Energy Congress?

Ziad Al-Sati: Well it has been a very amazing experience over the last 4 days. Many interesting topics (were discussed) with world leaders in the energy supply chain. It started with a very good first day of interesting panel discussions around the main topics concerning the power generation and oil and gas market nowadays.

Shukla: How do you think that your company's technological solutions would make a change in World Energy scenario?

Al-Sati: Our focus is on making a difference for the future (of) energy sector and if you see here just behind me, we are focusing on four main topics. Securing energy supply, making energy greener, making digitalization happen and managing complexity in the grid and if you look on the changes that are around us and trends in the energy sector, (these 4 topics) focus on everything that's changing (and) if we consider the main 3 Ds which is Decarbonisation, Decentralization, and Digitalization, you see that our strategy and our focus is to cover all of these areas.

Shukla: What are your plans for further global expansion of your technological solutions in energy sector?

Al-Sati: In the energy sector, as you know, the renewables are coming more and more into the market, and one of the challenges that we are trying to focus on and solve is energy storage. Here in the region, we have implemented the first electrolyzer which is a very nice compliment to solar power plants or any other renewables where you can use and utilize energy out of these electrolyzers in times where the renewable (energy) is not available.

Shukla: What have been your company's major achievements so far?

Al-Sati: One of the examples is the electrolyzer and also if we see the trends in the area of digitalization, for example, we are working very intensively with multiple of our customers in the Middle East and North Africa or even in other regions like Asia and North America to shape digital journey with the customers and we see a lot of demand from the customers to shape their digital strategy, their digital roadmaps and this I think is (also the) focus of many power generation companies.

Shukla: What message do you carry from the 24th Energy Congress?

Al-Sati: (That) the interaction between energy leaders, companies and operators should continue because (then) only we can go through this era of transformation and the shift in the energy market which we are seeing.

Thank you!!
