Smart Grids Asia Summit 2013 at Singapore

Logo Smart Grids Asia Summit 2013About the Summit:

The Asian energy industry is gaining momentum in global smart energy development. The local markets are strikingly versatile with different grid maturity levels, political and economical environments and as a result distinct approaches towards smart energy systems developments. The goal, however, remains the same – to provide sufficient, reliable and affordable energy for growing populations.

The Smart Grids Asia Summit 2013, organized by the World Trade Group (WTG) and scheduled to be held on June 26-27, 2013 at Singapore, will provide invaluable insights into the most important smart grid projects, research and developments, which are making Asia a new frontier for global energy technology and innovation.

The Summit will bring together forward thinkers from electricity grid transmission and distribution, renewables and generation sectors, technology institutions and R&D centers, investors and regulators to share insights into the immediate challenges and projects now started to realize the smart grid roll-out. The event includes – Keynote Presentations, Streamed Sessions, Case Studies from Experts, Pre-Scheduled One-to-One Meetings, Product & Service Exhibition, and Workshops.
