Southeast Asia's power grids are facing radical changes as the world strives to transition to cleaner, more sustainable energy systems and as distributed energy resources become increasingly prevalent. While advancements and upgrades on networks have been implemented to meet rising demand and greater challenges, the grid today still operates in the same manner it did over a century ago, with minimal flexibility or adaptation to emerging renewable technologies. There is no clear vision of how the Grid of the Future should look like, but we do know it has to be a smarter, stronger and sustainable one.
Under the umbrella of Energy Market Authority’s Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), Future of the Grid is Singapore’s only grid-focused event that examines impending challenges faced by our grid systems.
Taking place on 25 – 26 October 2023, Future of the Grid will gather policymakers and regulators, electrical utilities and grid operators, technology providers, and energy consumers into a single platform to discuss effective grid development strategies and greater opportunities as the world accelerates the transition to a lower carbon future.
