ABB at Technical Sessions : Offshore emission reductions in the transition - Tuesday 30 Aug. Time slot : 10:15-12:15

Camilla Lie

Technical Consultant

Camilla has a MSc degree in Renewable Energy from Norwegian University. Graduated in 2019 and currently working in ABB, Norway. Through ABB Trainee rotations she has worked in areas spanning from software development of dynamic simulators, to DevOps within AI in fish farming and business development. In her current position as Energy Industries Technical consultant, she is highly involved in power- and energy management, for all kinds of industry and solutions. This includes design and control concepts of integrated energy systems, for reliable and robust operations.

Topic: Low-emission upstream solutions

In this energy transition we are facing today, we also see a greater complexity in our power systems due to the integration of fluctuating renewable power. How to ensure reliability and stability in integrated energy systems are becoming more important than ever. The use of digital twin in order to simulate the entire system – including design, control and protection, operation, process and power, will allow for assessing the whole system as one holistic system. This will improve the understanding in order to make better investment decision to a safe and robust system.

ABB at Technical Sessions : Digital Green Transition - Thursday 1 Sept. Time slot : 10:00-12:00

Today Thomas work as Strategic Account Manager for petroleum related customers to ABB in addition to holding the position within the Smart Community business.

Topic: The Importance of Energy Optimizing - How to enable the right energy source and carrier based on emission, cost, and infrastructure.

Demand for reduced CO2 emissions, technological innovations, cost reductions, new business models and enabling policies are accelerating the electrification. Transformation of the power system into a decentralized grid and microgrids — with both energy and information potentially flowing both ways.

The challenge is how to turn the potentially disruptive effects of multi-source and distributed energy into an efficient and profitable way of operating a plant and the way we are doing business.

Continued electrification as of today will increase the need for investment in infrastructure. Energy optimalization can control the assets so we may utilize flexibility in the plant and grid and reduce the cost of the green shift.

Topic: Subsea Power Solutions for Offshore Wind

This presentation will show the potential use of Subsea Power Equipment’s to build Subsea Substation to capture Power from offshore windmills. Subsea Power at this stage has been developed based on needs in the oil & gas industry but will need to be modify somewhat to better serve the offshore wind industry. Initial studies show both Capex and Opex reduction compared to traditional solutions.

ABB at ONS Young: Energy and Cyber Security - Monday 29 at 11:30-11:45 + 14:10-14:30

Topic: Energy and Cyber Security


We have an energy crisis, we have a climate crisis and you can see in the news that threat activity is increasing. We want cheap and accessible energy, we want safe and predictable energy access, while we at the same time are working towards Net Zero. What the energy sector doing to ensure this? Is there too little focus on energy security? Is there too much blue-eyed optimism and too little realism?


This talk at the ONS Young arena provides insight into, and reflections on the situation and challenges we face. A part of this is what is being done to monitor, manage and secure our energy supply. Ane gives a young employee in the industry's views on why energy and cyber security are incredibly important and exciting to work with.
