About the trade show
Distribution Automation is emerging as the next hot topic in the smart grid industry. For utilities, DA deployments can yield significant cost savings through measurable improvements in operational efficiency, reliability, service quality, and energy conservation – all of which can contribute to customer satisfaction. In many cases, we expect DA will yield stronger return on investment than smart meters or other high-profile smart grid initiatives.
In order to increase the capacity of the electricity network at a low cost and to facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy, DA will offer significant savings, and will enable generation and demand to connect to the network faster.
Utility DA upgrades are a necessity in supporting the proliferation of distributed renewables and electric vehicles. New capacitor banks, voltage regulators, load tap changers, as well as the retrofit of older units with monitoring and control modules to allow for feeder, substation, or system-wide coordination will be crucial for the next generation grid.
SMi's second annual event will enable you to meet and network with utilities and hear about their spending on:
- distribution switchgear
- upgraded distribution transformers
- reclosers and sectionalizers
- disconnect switches and fused cutout switches
The conference will also showcase the latest on self healing grids, voltage optimisation, data security and analysis via case studies from different stake holders including utilities and technology companies.
