Speech title: Cutting-Edge Energy Technologies: Addressing Unpredicted Challenges

Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to revolutionize numerous sectors, including the energy industry, by offering innovative strategies to enhance the operation and reliability of energy systems, ensuring techno-economic benefits. However, the integration of AI into the energy sector is not without its unanticipated challenges, which could alter optimistic perspectives towards AI assimilation. These challenges are identified from a multi-faceted viewpoint, categorized based on shared dependency attributes, and subsequently evaluated to align with feasible recommendations. An interdisciplinary approach is adopted, leveraging extensive literature to assess the primary obstacles impeding the integration of AI into the energy sector. This study also offers insights and suggestions on navigating these challenges and underscores the potential advantages of successful integration. The findings underscore the necessity for a coordinated strategy to navigate these unanticipated challenges and can serve as a valuable guide for policymakers, energy practitioners, and researchers aiming to harness the potential of AI in the energy sector.
