Unlocking the Future of Energy through Business Model Transformation, Digitisation and Decarbonisation of the Energy Industry


Organised by IQPC Australia and in Partnership with The International Microgrid Association

Power grids all over the world are being increasingly challenged by weather events, cyber threats and the rapid growth of distributed energy resources (DERs). Grid operators are realising the role microgrids can play in improving resiliency, reliability and efficiency.

Microgrids must seamlessly orchestrate hybrid central energy resources with DERs, while maintaining grid security and safety. However, advanced microgrids have many challenges ahead as operating in parallel with utility distribution systems and seamlessly transitioning to ‘island’ mode is just the beginning…

This event will explore the global transition towards utility optimisation and electrification through advanced microgrids. Leaders from across the globe will come together to assess the evolution of the industry and the new challenges which have arisen. From utilities to regulators to government agencies, a cross industry perspective on how to leverage the opportunities offered by microgrids will be provided through panels, workshops, case studies and debates.
