Distribution Automation 2012
Distribution Automation projects are increasingly proving the significant cost savings that can be achieved through improved reliability and efficiency gains, plus reduced energy wastage. Indeed with annual growth of 26.6% forecast for the Smart Grid in the US until 2018, DA is being widely marked as ‘the next big thing’ with the potential to deliver higher returns on investment than any other Smart Grid initiative.
Despite this potential, utilities number one challenge remains justifying the business case; the scope, complexity and costs of IT investments necessary means each step of deployment requires careful cost-benefit analysis.
At Distribution Automation 2012 you will gain first-hand insights, lessons learned and actual field implementation results, from the leading utilities advancing DA across their grids, enabling you to drive forward your own projects based on an evidence-based commercially viable strategy.
