About GridWeek 2012 

Globally recognized as the must-attend gathering dedicated to the modernization of our global Smart Grid, GridWeek is the only event that attracts the complete diversity of global electric-industry stakeholders to explore Smart Grid’s impact on the economy, utility infrastructure, consumers and the environment. Now in its sixth year, GridWeek is planned by a representative committee of 14 industry stakeholder groups to ensure the agenda is focused on the most pressing industry topics.

Unprecedented networking opportunities with complete diversity of global stakeholders. 

  • Utility leaders, policymakers, regulators, researchers, technologists, advocates -- there’s no better place to meet the industry’s movers and shakers, forge new relationships, and uncover new business opportunities.
As grid-modernization and smart grid efforts provide the energy industry with more information, a broader system view, and more efficiency and control, we are faced with increasing complexity. The challenge lies in deriving value from that complexity -- for all stakeholders.

GridWeek 2012 will tackle the challenge of deriving value from this complexity -- gathering utility, policy, regulatory and consumer experts to approach the topic head-on.

Providing a mix of in-depth panel discussions, value-focused case studies, and a forward look at how the ever-changing energy landscape will impact the electrical grid, GridWeek will explore three key themes:

  • Stakeholder value: A look at the value of grid-modernization efforts for diverse stakeholders, including utilities, consumers, government and more.
  • Managing complexity: Discussions on managing complexity of the ever-changing energy landscape -- from the integration of microgrids to the growing importance of natural gas -- as well as the challenges in handling increased volumes of data through analytics, building secure networks, managing expectations on privacy and more.
  • Smart energy policy: In an election year, it’s hard to ignore the impact of politics on the energy industry. GridWeek will gather top political minds to discuss how election results could alter the path we’re on -- or even provide a clearer road map.
