About the event

How to move smart grid implementation forward


The age of large scale smart grid deployment is finally here after years of research, demonstrations and small island prototypes. Transformation of energy market have paved the way for smart grids as a highly responsive solution to changed power dynamics created by large scale wind farm projects both onshore and offshore, increased penetration of generation in low voltage networks supporting solar PV and micro-CHP and increased use of controllable devices on the customer side of the meter.

Smart grids delivers a key component in this revolutionary change. Greater intelligence, especially in low and medium voltage networks, controllability of both networks and customer demand, coupled with greater intermittency in generation are all driving the deployment of smart grids. The 2nd annual Smart Grids Europe conference and exhibition will bring together 25+ of Europe’s industry professionals to deliver case studies on smart grid projects providing an answer to the complexity of distributed generation allowing utilities to balance generation and effectively manage power usage.

Smart Grids Europe is co-located with the 7th annual Transmission & Distribution Europe conference and exhibition.
