The 10th Smart Utilities Australia & New Zealand conference & exhibition is the region’s largest platform focusing on the latest developments in the water and electricity utility industry. Electricity industry retailers, distributors and water utilities will meet to evaluate the latest smart technologies and project experiences, exchange ideas on steps towards the ultimate smart grid and hear how the evolution of smart technologies and smart appliances will have an impact on their current business processes and investment strategies.
According to Lucintel’s recent research, the global smart grid market has experienced double-digit growth rates over the last five years and is expected to continue its growth momentum, reaching approximately US $57 billion by 2016. Growth in renewable energy generation sources and their integration into a common grid is one of the major drivers in the smart grid market. The high cost of installing smart grid components such as smart meters and sensors, and the maintenance and monitoring expenses of smart grid technology are challenging factors. Rising costs of electricity generation, government incentives to promote green energy and the distribution of smart meters, however, are boosting the smart grid market.
With these fascinating developments in mind, Smart Utilities 2012 will provide a timely platform for the utility industry in the region to get insights into the latest developments and initiatives and to collect new ideas from experienced industry professionals from the region and beyond.
At the multi-track conference, carefully selected utility professionals will present updates on their latest project experiences, results and steps forward. International case studies from the USA, Europe and Asia will encourage the participants to stay tuned with the latest innovations and successes.
The targeted, large scale exhibition will provide an excellent opportunity for visitors to get informed about the latest technologies and solutions to make their next steps more successful and to better prepare themselves for the ultimate Smart Grid.
