The Role of AI in Energy Management: Pragmatic Approaches, What Is AI and What It Is Not?
How is AI used currently in the energy sector? What is AI and what is not? Artificial Intelligence can have hundreds of functions. The most prominent use for the energy sector is applying AI to progress data for utility managers to make efficient decisions based on the inputs they get in real time. AI helps utility managers to identify and understand consumption trends and ensure an optimum level of efficiency. Is that right that the expansion of AI within the energy industry will mean that utility managers will have the ability to see the whole market at a glance at any moment? What other benefits can bring AI and how dificult is to implement those solutions? What are the downsides etc. 
April 2, 2021 - Building Solar Cities Rethinking How Cities Get Their Power
The next three decades are a unique opportunity in the history of cities: the chance to remake two of the central systems that have defined and organized the city for the past two hundred years–electricity and the automobile. The choices we make in redesigning these systems will have profound implications for how people live, work and play in the post-carbon city of the future. At the heart of those choices is the humble solar panel: a source of abundant, cheap, clean power that is already reconfiguring urban and rural landscapes. In the coming decades, we will deploy billions of solar panels around the globe. What makes the solar panel different from previous energy technologies is its flexibility to be deployed in a wide variety of social, economic and engineered forms, including in a host of different forms inside cities. Moderated by Dr. Clark Miller, with panelists Dr. John Byrne (Director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy (CEEP) and Distinguished Professor of Energy and Climate Policy at the University of Delaware); Dr. Job Taminiau (Research Principal, Foundation for Renewable Energy and Environment); Dr. Joe Nyangon (Senior Industry Consultant for Power and Utilities Innovation at the SAS Institute), and Dr. Christiana Honsberg (Director of the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies Engineering Research Center and Professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University).
March 6, 2021 - Reaction to President Biden's Pledge to Reduce U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Earth Day offers an annual opportunity to reflect on and advance climate action, but this year’s observance brought with it some big news. Among other aims, the Biden Administration announced that the United States will target reducing emissions by 50 percent by 2030, as compared to 2005 levels. Other initiatives were announced around how to help developing countries establish net-zero strategies, how to transform the transportation sector and how to harness the potential of solar, wind and energy storage — among many others. That leaves the electricity industry with plenty to talk about and plenty to do. On this episode of Electrifying AI, Dr. Joe Nyangon, a senior industry consultant for power and utilities innovation here at SAS, joins us to break down the news and examine how the energy and utilities sector can move forward.


April 8, 2020 - Panel Presentation, Delaware Power Dialogue on Climate Change Policy Innovations,
Panelist presentations on key innovations in climate change policy in Delaware state. Part of the Solve Climate by 2030 challenge from Bard College. Moderated by Dr. Saleem H. Ali, with panelists Dr. John Byrne, Dr. Joseph Nyangon, Dr. Cristina Archer and Dr. Phil Barnes.
