Description

Across the globe, power grids are known to be increasingly challenged by weather and cyber threats as well as the rapid growth of distributed energy resources (DERs). As a result, grid operators are realising the role that microgrids can play in improving resiliency, reliability and efficiency of power supply.

The challenge with this market shift is to seamlessly orchestrate central energy resources with DERs, while maintaining grid security in a microgrid. Operating in parallel with utility distribution systems and seamlessly transitioning to ‘island’ mode is just the beginning…

To support the energy industry through this transformation, we're delighted to announce The International Microgrid Event - the first event of its kind in the southern hemisphere taking place on 30th March – 2nd April 2020, in Perth, Western Australia.
