Huge thanks to our submitters.

Wow. The numbers are in and we just got a record-shattering numbers of submitted abstracts. This is going to be the best year yet.

Conference

The 15-track conference brings industry thought-leaders from all over the world opportunities to network, share knowledge and problem solve with worldwide utilities and product and service providers. The topics covered are relevant and timely, answering the current call of the market each year.

NEW TRACKS THIS YEAR:
Disruptive, Emerging and Innovative Technologies • Reliability, Resiliency and Response

Exhibition

Exhibition

520+ companies fill the exhibit hall with information, products and services related to electricity delivery automation and control systems, energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy integration, advanced metering, T&D system operation and reliability, communications technologies, cyber security, water utility technology and more.

Networking

Networking

DistribuTECH continually focuses on bringing it all back to one-on-one engagement and relationship building. That is one of the defining characteristics for the event. From the Women in Utilities Breakfast / Breakfast Roundtables to start your day - to our fun and exciting Networking Party the last night, you will walk away with a slew of new business cards.

Key conference tracks for 2019

Check out what our utilities are learning and how the conference staying one step ahead with these 8 tracks. Want to see all of them? We knew you'd say yes.

Advanced metering track icon

Advanced metering track

Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems are one the most significant investments that electric, gas and water utilities will make. These systems now go well beyond advanced metering to be a foundation for grid intelligence, customer enablement, energy conservation and distributed renewable energy resources...

Customer strategies & technologies track icon

Customer strategies & technologies track

Energy providers and electricity deliverers are developing technology roadmaps and leveraging smart grid investments to not only enable enhanced customer engagement, but to improve infrastructure efficiency and defer capital expenditures. Customers expect their utilities to provide them with much more than just electrons...

DER management and control track icon

DER management and control track

The electric grid is becoming more complex and much of this complexity stems from the rapid rise of distributed energy resources (DERs). To maintain grid reliability and efficiency, grid operators must understand the operational concepts, capabilities and architectural principles related to managing and controlling DER...

Digitized substation track icon

Digitized substation track

T&D substations are essential elements of power systems being the active nodes of electric networks. The need for safety, reliability and efficiency, along with technological trends like digitalization, are driving the industry toward digitized substations. This transition and its associated organizational, operational and technological challenges...

Digitized substation track icon

Disruptive, emerging and innovative technologies track

Emerging and innovative technologies create new opportunities for utilities, electricity deliverers and energy providers. At the same time, these technologies can create major disruptions and challenges. Either way, these transformational technologies are a fact of life for most companies involved with electricity delivery. To succeed...

Energy storage track

Utilities have always looked for ways to increase the reliability, flexibility, security and efficiency of power delivery systems. The introduction of alternative energy sources and active energy markets has led to an increased focus on energy storage to address both traditional and emerging power system needs, such as...

Internet of things & smart cities track icon

Internet of things & smart cities track

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...

Reliability, resiliency and response track icon

Reliability, resiliency and response track

Grid reliability and resiliency are not the same, but are strongly interlinked. Cyberattacks and hacks, aging infrastructure and disastrous weather events make it harder than ever for energy transmission and distribution (T&D) companies to keep power flowing and to restore power when outages do occur. Customers’, regulators’ and...
