Our 3rd annual conference, Telecoms for Smart Grids, will address the current development of both UK and European communications infrastructures for Utilities. We will be discussing what communication infrastructure and backbone will be most secure, flexible, scalable and reliable. We will hear first results and challenges from key pilot projects, along with a view to next steps and conclusions.

Smart Grid Communication technologies capable of enhancing energy efficiency, utility operations, renewable resource integration, and meet the needs of increasing power demands will lead the global evolution of the Smart Grid.
