Save the Date! The Networked Grid 2012 will be held on April 4-5, 2012 at the Washington Duke Inn in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. More information coming soon!
The Networked Grid 2011 is Greentech Media’s premier two-day Summit event covering next-generation smart grid infrastructure and applications. This year's conference will highlight the critical, emerging trend relating to the integration of intelligence in the power layer infrastructure itself, among other topics.
Greentech Media and GTM Research know the value of up-to-date information and analysis, especially in the fast-changing smart grid market. At The Networked Grid 2011, the most current topics will be covered by the experts in the industry and discussed by utilities, major corporations and vendors, policy makers, innovators, financial executives and more.
With the last several years focused primarily on smart meters and networked advanced metering infrastructure, essentially defining smart grid 1.0, the industry is evolving toward the ultimate vision of an intelligent grid as the physical power layer infrastructure in the distribution grid captures attention via technology innovation and investment. Led by new advancements in power electronics and software control, the physical layer of the distribution grid is evolving in terms of both monitoring and actuation. Distribution Automation and Grid Optimization technologies and applications are becoming critical to ensure grid stability as the power generation architecture becomes more distributed and intermittent, and as new, unpredictable loads such as those created by electric vehicles stress the grid.
Although AMI is has been an exciting first application for the smart grid, the ultimate foundation for AMI and the many other current and future smart grid applications is ultimately dependent upon the evolution of the physical layer distribution grid. The Networked Grid 2011 will continue to cover the the end-to-end market from generation through distribution to consumption, but with a keen focus this year on the power layer foundation that will ultimately support the plethora of current and future smart grid applications.
