Power Distribution Business

Electric power industry is undergoing significant change, fueled by marketplace forces and legislative & regulatory activities. Competition, aging proprietary systems, reductions in staff and operating margins are leading utilities to rapidly expand their use of information systems and to interconnect previously isolated networks. The 2 day Seminar will focus on “Guidelines for Specification and Evaluation of Substation Automation System” and on “Risk Assessment in Power Distribution Business”.

The Power Distribution seminar & exhibition series offers a unique platform to learn, discuss and exchange experience about the major structural, technical, managerial and regulatory changes in the Electricity Distribution segment amongst various stakeholders.
