Wow. 16 hand-selected, timely, and relevant topical tracks designed to keep your experience organized and productive. We understand you don't want to leave a single stone unturned. So, here is your first step in prioritizing your list.

Conference tracks:   

These sessions are vetted and curated by our advisory committee and in-house content team for excellence and thought leadership. The content is presented in a variety of formats including 30-minute presentations or 60-90 minute technical seminars, panel discussions, and case studies.

Advanced Distribution Operations

Technologies and solutions that keep the electric grid running smoothly. Fault location and voltage optimization figure prominently in this track.

G&W Electric

Asset Management

Tools and strategies to help utility professionals effectively manage and maintain their assets for long-term reliability and sustainability.

Mitsubishi Electric

Communication Tech/Networks

A smart grid requires constant communication. This track presents communication network strategies and modernization plans for electric utilities.

Ericsson Inc

Customer Engagement

Customer engagement is increasingly important for resiliency and customer satisfaction. This track covers tools and technologies aimed at keeping the utility/customer relationship mutually beneficial.  


Cyber and Physical Security

Whether it’s a physical assault, a safety incident, or a cyberattack, the focus of this track is keeping the grid and workers safe and secure.

Data Analytics

Data is everywhere. It’s collected from smart devices in the field or at the meter, it’s collected from customers, it's collected from electric vehicles, chargers, and other distributed energy resources. This track looks at best practices for data collection, management, and analytics.


DER for Reliability

Distributed energy resources can be used during an outage to keep critical customers online. DER can also be strategically deployed to balance renewables on the system or reduce peaks when the grid is strained.



This track focuses on the distributed energy resources management system, a software platform that can be used to manage, monitor, and control DER on a grid.


Electric Vehicles

This track showcases how utilities are working to ensure the grid is stable and able to provide energy to electric vehicles as they are being deployed worldwide.


Energy Orchestration and the DSO

As more DER are being added to the energy system and as the markets are defined so utilities can truly use them for all that they can provide, distribution utilities will need to evolve into distribution system operators (DSO). This track covers the tools, technologies, tariffs and markets that the electric utility of the future will need to take full advantage of DER on their system.

Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG)

This track covers best practices in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) for electric utilities, cities, and the vendors and partners they work with. Companies with strong ESG foundations are working to minimize their environmental impact; create inclusive and diverse workplaces; contribute to the well-being of their employees and local communities; and communicate with honesty and integrity. 


Grid Modernization

This track looks at how utilities are monitoring, operating, and optimizing grid operations using software tools including the ADMS, the OMS and other enterprise-wide systems.


Smart Cities

The Smart City uses technology to monitor everything from air quality to water efficiency to parking and more. This track highlights smart city best practices and utility/city collaboration on a broad range of topics from smart streetlights to resiliency and sustainability.


Storm & Disaster Management

Storms, floods, wildfires, hurricanes, heatwaves, and tornados are all happening more frequently. This track looks at how utilities prepare for disasters and how they ensure the quickest and most efficient recovery after them.

System Hardening & Vegetation Management

Minimizing damage when those weather events occur requires active vegetation management. Other topics in this track include undergrounding, installing stronger poles or larger conductors, and even creating microgrids.


The Flexible Grid

A grid powered by intermittent renewable energy and distributed energy resources needs built-in flexibility to remain in balance. This track showcases the tools and strategies utilities are using to add flexibility to the distribution system.
