Want to focus on e-mobility? How about solar + storage? DISTRIBUTECH International wants to connect you to the topics that matter most to you.
Many businesses and homeowners are installing solar PV and batteries to lower energy costs and increase sustainability. Utilities are also working to determine how to manage, control, and even potentially sell those assets as part of their approach to electric power delivery to customers.
From the tiniest smart streetlight, to the largest solar-power electric vehicle charging station—utilities and cites are introducing new, interconnected systems, energy resources and automation innovations in order to transform urban environments into smart, sustainable cites.
Utilities are collecting more data than ever before and making sense of it will help build the grid of the future. At DTECH we’ll be covering advanced analytics for asset management, business transformations through data analytics, automated building energy management modeling, distributed resource planning, AMI, LIDAR and much more.
Distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) are a hot topic today because done correctly, these systems can manage everything from a single customer’s hot water heater to a huge substation-sited battery in order to keep electricity flowing smoothly on the grid.
Utilities know that advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is the key that unlocks a smarter, safer, and more resilient grid. DTECH will explore customer engagement best practices for smart meter deployments; how to use AMI data and how AMI and smart cities work hand-in-hand.
Automating and controlling the flow of energy on the distribution grid is increasingly complicated as more and more devices are connected to it. At DTECH, we will help you understand the optimal implementation of sensors, VVO, and synchrophasors and how these technologies help give utilities situational awareness of the grid; we’ll also look at some of the workforce challenges to automation deployment and we’ll explain about FLISR, state estimation and distribution power flow.
