North America’s Leading Energy Event: The Role of IT in Sustainability

Some of our team members at Ironclad TEK will be attending the Global Energy Show Exhibition & Conference in Calgary, taking place from June 13-15, 2023, at the BMO Centre. Attending this event allows us to stay on top of energy trends, network with industry professionals, and have a finger on the pulse of the latest innovations.

The Global Energy Show, recognized as the premier energy event in North America, serves as a significant platform for industry stakeholders, buyers, sellers, CEOs, and young professionals to exchange knowledge and foster innovation within the dynamic energy sector. The event encompasses a comprehensive B2B exhibition and conference that embraces all energy systems, including oil sands, hydrogen, wind, solar, petrochemicals, gas and LNG, electrification, and nuclear.

Energy professionals will collaborate in charting the path to meet energy demands, engage in discussions about energy transition, showcase cutting-edge technology and innovation, and explore the role of all energy sources within the broader energy system.

The IT Industry’s Role in the Energy Sector

IT services are essential for the global energy sector as they enable effective data management, real-time monitoring, renewable energy integration, cybersecurity, energy efficiency, and collaborative efforts, among others. By leveraging technology and data-driven solutions, the energy industry can enhance its sustainability, resilience, and ability to meet the world’s growing energy needs, whether through Managed IT Services, consulting, and more.

IT services play a crucial role in the global energy sector for several reasons:

  • Data Management and Analysis – The energy industry generates massive amounts of data from various sources. IT services enable effective data management and analysis, allowing energy companies to optimize their operations, improve efficiency, and make data-driven decisions. This is particularly important in a global context where energy demands and supply chains span across regions and countries.
  • Monitoring and Control – IT services enable real-time monitoring and control of energy infrastructure, including power generation plants, distribution networks, and renewable energy systems. Through advanced technologies, energy companies can remotely monitor and manage their assets, detect anomalies, and respond quickly to any operational issues or emergencies. This improves the reliability and safety of global energy systems.
  • Renewable Energy Integration – The transition to renewable energy sources is a critical component of global energy sustainability. IT services play a vital role in integrating renewable energy into the grid, managing the variability and intermittency of renewable sources, and optimizing their utilization. IT solutions help balance supply and demand, maximize renewable energy utilization, and enhance grid stability
  • Cybersecurity – The global energy sector is a prime target for cyberattacks due to its critical infrastructure and vast interconnected networks. IT services are essential for implementing robust cybersecurity measures to protect energy systems from cyber threats. This includes network security, data encryption, intrusion detection systems, and continuous monitoring to safeguard energy assets, prevent unauthorized access, and ensure data integrity.
  • Collaborative Platforms and Communication – Global energy operations involve collaboration among various stakeholders, including energy companies, governments, regulators, research institutions, and consumers. IT services facilitate seamless communication, information sharing, and collaboration through digital platforms, cloud computing, and online portals. These technologies enhance coordination, knowledge exchange, and collective efforts toward addressing global energy challenges such as climate change and energy access.
