2nd EAI International Conference on Smart Grid Inspired Future Technologies

March 27–28, 2017 | London, Great Britain



2nd EAI International Conference on Smart Grid Inspired Future Technologies

The smart grid is envisaged to be the next generation electric grid for Smart Cities. It enables the smart integration of conventional power generation, renewable generation, distributed generation, energy storage, transmission, distribution and demand management. The benefits of smart grid include the enhanced reliability and resilience, higher intelligence and optimized control, decentralized operation, higher operational efficiency, more efficient demand management, and better power quality. However, the large scale deployment of smart grid without proper utilizations causes new dimension of threats, especially in the critical infrastructures that are highly depending on the availability of electricity.

Hence, the proposed theme for SmartGIFT 2017 is “Smart Grid Inspired Future Technologies: A smarter and more resilient grid”. The primary technical challenges to be addressed in SmartGIFT 2017 are related to the resiliency of Smart Grids, Microgrids, Distributed Grids and Distributed Resources, with the focuses on the following tracks to ensure the smart cities based power generation and storage are prioritized and enable the minimal viable operation in the cities.

Track 1. Smart Control and Operation

Track 2. Reliability, Resiliency, Cyber Security and Privacy

Track 3. Communications, Networks and Architectures

Track 4. Data Management and Grid Analytics
