This year’s event will enable delegates to meet and network with utilities and gather information. Hear about the most up to date topics to help you with your day to day activities and challenges.
Date: 29-30 September 2014

In the context of smart grid deployments today, Distribution Automation (DA) refers to intelligent distribution systems that are fully controllable and flexible, and that can help operate the grid more efficiently due to their embedded intelligence. The lessons learned from smart grid pilots over the last 5 years are leading to proven reliability improvements and verified grid efficiencies, which in turn have become powerful drivers for growth in the DA market. According to a new report from Navigant Research, revenue from DA systems will grow from $6.3 billion in 2013 to more than $11.3 billion in 2020.

Against this backdrop, SMi's 4th annual conference will enable delegates to meet and network with utilities and gather information.
