UtiliNet Europe 2018

Date: 15-17 May, 2018

Location: Brussels, Belgium

 

The 4th annual UtiliNet Europe 2018 draws together 100+ utility telecom and cyber-security professionals for 3 intensive days of packet telecom implementation reviews. 14+ case studies reveal how European TSOs and DSOs are future-proofing their telecom networks to ensure high levels of reliability and cyber security as the migration from SDH to IP-MPLS and MPLS-TP takes hold.

 

Days 1 & 2 address IP migration strategies, the opportunities and challenges presented by the different technology options such as SDH, IP, IP-MPLS, MPLS-TP, experiences in deploying new IP-enabled services and applications such as IP SCADA, PMU, and IP Video Surveillance, monitoring of an increasingly complex multi-vendor, multi-technology telecom network, and the integration of IP network security into a comprehensive end-to-end security strategy. Assessment of the different public and private telecom infrastructure options including MVNO and PVNO will be made, as well as an examination of the future SDH and NFV service-oriented telecom network architecture.

 

Day 3 provides two parallel workshops, one focused on cyber-security for Utility telecom professionals, the other on supporting tele-protection services with packet telecoms.

Asean Power Grid Summit 2018
Event Details

 

ASEAN Power Grid Summit 2018 

Date : 21-23 May 2018 

Location: Vientiane, Lao PDR 

 

Enhancing APG Investment Towards Regional Energy Optimisation 

 

Secure, reliable electricity infrastructure is vital to support the regional economic growth and integration process. Southeast Asia countries are forecasted to have growing demands in the power sector, expected to triple from 789TWh in 2013 to about 2,200TWh in 2040 which doubles the current capacity. Hence, calls for investments of USD 618 billion in generation and USD 690 billion in the transmission and distribution of power is needed. 

 

A regional ASEAN Power Grid (APG) would help ASEAN member states to meet the rising energy demand, improve access to energy services and reduce developing costs for energy infrastructures. APG is established to connect countries with surplus power generation capacity to those facing a deficit. An interconnected power system as such could further enhance the development and integration of variable renewable power generation capacity. 

 

The hosting of Asean Power Grid Summit 2018 (APGS 2018) with its overarching theme, ‘Enhancing APG Investment towards Regional Energy Optimisation’ is timely in addressing 

pertinent and relevant issues in foregrounding the potentials of power sector of ASEAN countries and attracting more Foreign Direct Investments into ensuring the success of meeting the rising energy demand and translating that into successful connections of power grids in ASEAN member states.

Solar India 2018 Expo

Date: 23-25 May, 2018

Location: New Delhi, India

 

Welcome to Solar India expo

Over 300 million people still have no access to electricity, which is why solar power is being seen as a viable, long-term source of clean energy. Solar energy, a clean renewable resource with zero emissions, has tremendous potential of energy to be harnessed using a variety of devices. 

India is on course to emerge as a solar power hub, and will become one of the largest green energy producers in the world. This can be clearly seen from the fact that India has become the second-biggest solar-energy installer in the world in just two years. Also, according to estimates, Indian solar-energy capacity will get increased by 300 percent this year and next. 

As part of its blueprint for energy security, government plans to float five funds of $5 billion each, targeted at promoting green energy sources. 

Prime Minister Modi’s target is to achieve 100 GW of solar power capacity by 2022 with an estimated investment of around US$ 100 billion. 

Realising the immense potential and emerging opportunities existing in solar industry. Exhibitions India Group is organising the 3rd edition of Solar India 2018 expo which will be held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi from 23-25 May 2018. The theme of the exhibition and conference is “Solar Energy for a Sustainable Future.”

CIRED Workshop 2018
Event Details

CIRED Workshop 2018

Date: 7-8 June 2018

Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia

 

CIRED workshops on specific topics are organized every two years between CIRED main conferences. In 2018, the workshop will address "Microgrids and local energy communities".


Microgrids and local energy communities can have a tremendous impact on distribution system development, and may offer a number of important advantages for the end-users and for the utilities. Customers, producers and those who do both have the potential to reduce energy costs, improve service continuity and bidding system services and flexibility. Distribution system operators may reduce or postpone investments, increase hosting capacity and improve quality of services. A proper regulatory framework has to be designed to allow them to bring these expected benefits to the various stakeholders, while maintaining an effective market operation, making sure there is no negative impact on the overall cost base and avoiding unfair cross-subsidisation.


This is the reason why this CIRED workshop focuses on microgrids, i.e. electricity distribution systems containing loads and distributed energy resources (such as distributed generators, storage devices, or controllable loads), that can be operated in a controlled, coordinated way, whether they are:
 

  • Isolated microgrids, which only function in an island mode,
  • Embedded microgrids, which can be controlled either while connected to the main power network or while islanded,
  • Local energy communities, which comprise consumers cooperating for the satisfaction of their energy needs using local production
    sources, and which are not designed to operate in an island mode.

Electricity Loss Reduction & Theft Management Summit 2018
Event Details

Electricity Loss Reduction & Theft Management Summit 2018

Date: 2-5 July, 2018

Location: Singapore

 

World’s Leading Electricity Loss Reduction & Theft Management Summit Comes to Singapore in July 2018!

 

The electricity and power industry faces countless challenges in managing electricity loss and thefts, specifically in emerging market countries.

 

From report, non-technical losses which make up more than 70% in the electricity losses. There are many reasons why. A large proportion is due to theft and frauds. From reports, the world loses US$ 96 billion a year to electricity theft with over US$58.7 billion per year owning the top 50 emerging markets. In the face of these challenges, even though a number of policy initiatives have been put in place, the task of reduce the case of electricity theft is yet to be achieved.  Electricity power still lose large amounts of money every year due to unlawful usage of electricity and fraud by electricity consumers. Technology oriented means for combating the problem have often showed their limitations. For example, finding effective measurements for detecting and identifying fraudulent electricity consumption is one of the major obstacles facing the electricity power utilities companies.

 

While for technical losses, the electric power company is facing the challenges in identify the main sources and causes of technical losses and failed to accurately allocate the appropriate methods in reduce the electricity technical losses. 

 

Due to the above reasons, it is particularly important that the power utilities, electricity and smart grid companies together with government and ministries of energy/infrastructure to come together to discuss the latest trends in electricity theft and technical & non-technical losses and to look at proven solutions and technologies in countering these massive issues.

 

Equip Global’ s Leading Electricity Loss Reduction & Theft Management Summit 2018 will take place from 2nd – 5th July 2018 in Singapore to discuss the real challenges that the electricity power utilities companies are facing today in the region. In this summit, we will discuss and identify the effective strategies for reducing technical loss in distribution and transmission lines, effective electricity theft detection, identification & management system, improve revenue collection, pre-payment & billing system to minimize & control electricity theft, smart metering in loss management reduction, and better operation practices of revenue assurance for electricity companies. Expect to hear case studies on successfully power down electricity theft and effective methods in preventing electricity loss around the world.
