NSW Annual Electric Energy Conference 2018 Call for Papers
The NSW 2018 conference has the theme – “Adapting to the major changes reshaping the electric energy industry“.
The conference will cover many of the key issues impacting the electric energy and associated businesses in the short to medium term and the opportunities that available for existing and new players.
In putting together the conference program, we have focussed on the subject areas that we believe are most relevant to people working in the many businesses in the electric energy industry.
The EESA NSW Annual Electric Energy Conference will again be held at the Dockside Conference Centre – on the Balcony level at Cockle Bay Wharf. This conference centre has great facilities, is centrally located in Sydney, allows easy access from public transport and there is plenty of parking available close by.
All the conference sessions will be streamed live and thus remote participants will be able to view the sessions live online and also ask questions of the presenters online via the session chair. There is also ample opportunity to learn from and network with your peers and the many exhibitors in a relaxed setting.
We are calling for people to present papers in 3 of the conference sessions with the following themes
Session 1 – The “Internet of Things”, “smart houses”, “smart grids” and more – examples of the clever use of smart technologies across the electric energy area.
Session 2 – “Microgrids, new types of generation and storage developments – what is the experience of businesses in these areas?”
Session 3 – “The changing role of engineers across the electric energy area – and the new skills required for success”
