Event - Distributech Conference and Exhibition
DistribuTECH is the leading annual electric power transmission and distribution conference & exhibition event that addresses technologies used to move electricity from the power plant through the transmission and distribution systems to the meter and inside the home. Bringing together 11,300+ individuals from 78 countries, DistribuTECH offers industry professionals from electric utilities, water utilities, and other municipal utilities more information and networking opportunities than any other annual T&D event.
At this event you will find 14 tracks, here is a review of 5 of those tracks (Advanced Metering, Customer Strategies and Technology, DER, DR and Other Non-wires Alternatives, Internet of Things/Smart Cities).
This track will explore the deployment, operation, and maintenance of such systems through the presentation of actual use cases, experiences and lessons-learned from industry and utility experts. Particular focus will be on the actual benefits derived including planning and deployment, system operations, outage management, theft detection and distribution operations will be explored.
Customer Strategies and Technology
Utilities are developing technology roadmaps and leveraging smart grid investments to enable enhanced customer engagement. This track will provide an in-depth analysis of end-use customer smart grid technologies, services, and solutions.
DER, DR and Other Non-wires Alternatives
The sessions in this track will look at the nontraditional trends and technologies utilities are implementing to balance the grid and reduce their need to invest in traditional transmission and distribution infrastructure technologies. It will include distributed energy resources (DER), such as renewable energy (like solar and wind), energy storage and demand response (DR).
Internet of Things/Smart Cities
The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Grid of Things (GoT) are rapidly evolving into smart cities. Electric utilities/electricity providers are at the heart of this effort, providing, in many cases, the electric, communications and device infrastructures that form the core ecosystem upon which connected and interoperable devices are built. The sessions in this track will look at some of the technologies and trends that will allow utilities to live in the interconnected world of smart cities that is being created through IoT and GoT.
The sessions in this track will cover strategies for implementing microgrids, determining their value and benefits, and understanding their technical design, control, and operation. Attendees will hear from a variety of presenters including utilities, regulators, industry analysts and microgrid owner/operators.
