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

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.
