2012 National Smart Electricity Conference

Innovation, Strategy and Investment for Power Utilities and Government


Following the success of the inaugural 2010 National Smart Grid Summit, iQuest, in association with ESB Networks, is delighted to present the 2012 National Smart Electricity Conference.

The concept of Smart Electricity and how it will contribute to future economic growth in Ireland is now widely acknowledged. Investment in the smart grid is crucial as current transmission and distribution systems need to be transformed into smart networks in order to accommodate larger amounts of renewable energy, as well as allowing customers to actively manage their electricity needs.

To-date, electricity has been a centrally produced commodity for a predictable market. A change is now taking place towards a market where flexibility must occur on both the supplier and the consumer sides.

The National Smart Electricity Conference is Irelandís most comprehensive platform for energy and policy makers to debate strategies for the development of Smart Networks, to enable Ireland to move to a low carbon economy, while enhancing the reliability and efficiency of transmission and distribution networks.

With the Energy 2020 strategy driving the move towards competitive, sustainable and secure energy throughout Europe, the National Smart Electricity Conference 2012 will provide invaluable insights into the most important projects, research and developments which could help Ireland become a leader in energy technology and innovation.

The development of Smart Networks is not just for Ireland, but is a worldwide challenge. Therefore, iQuest is delighted that, through ESB Networks leading presence in this area, it has been possible to assemble an internationally-based speaker line up from America and Europe, as well as the many multinationals based in Ireland.

The Smart Electricity Conference 2012 will bring together leading National and International energy specialists, investors and regulators to share insights into the immediate challenges and opportunities realised by the Smart Electricity vision.
