Event Description

The development of Smart Grids is a prerequisite for reaching key energy objectives – decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing energy efficiency and the share of renewable energy – bringing us effectively and cost-efficiently to a more sustainable and competitive energy future.

EDSO for Smart Grids and the Global Smart Grid Federation invite you to their joint-conference taking place in Brussels on 21-22 March 2013. The event will highlight real-life Smart Grids projects from around the world and present and debate the current challenges and best practices, the supply of Smart Grid equipment and services, and what is needed regarding market development, policy and regulatory frameworks.

The conference will gather high-level speakers from around the world, representing utilities, ICT companies, system operators, manufacturers, research communities and policy-makers and revolve around four key themes: 

  • Integration of renewable energy resources, plug-in EVs and energy storage to the grid 
  • Smart metering and active demand management 
  • ICT control and data security 
  • Business objectives and market organisation
