Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference 2017

This event has already taken place.

Sunday 19 November 2017 to Wednesday 22 November 2017

We are pleased to invite you to take part in the 2017 conference, to be held from 19 – 22 November.

Hosted by the Victoria University College of Engineering & Science, the conference will be held at the Melbourne Park Function Centre, Melbourne & Olympic Parks.

Theme: Smart Power Grids in the 21st Century

Smart energy technologies are transforming the power network into a smart grid capable of meeting 21st century economic, security and environmental challenges. But the smart grid still faces hurdles.

Particularly, the requirement for extensive field testing to prove new energy systems and regulatory reform, in order to eliminate financial disincentives for adopting new technologies.

A host of new smart energy devices and systems are emerging that can take pressure off overloaded grid infrastructure and power costs, dramatically improving grid reliability and security, and accelerating the growth of cleaner power generation.
