Driving operational efficiency for aging infrastructures, carbon reduction, and lower energy consumption are top priorities for today’s Utilities. The communications network will need to not only facilitate advanced control and monitoring, but also support additional generation, transmission, marketing and service provisions.

SMi’s 3rd annual Telecoms for Smart Grids conference will provide insight into emerging communications technology, requirements for metering, methods of coping with increasing demand, data communications and monitoring and control initiatives.
