En.forum Smart Grids 010 - Challenge for Today!

GZS, Ljubljana, 16. February 2010
  • Increasing use of energy, liberalysation of markets and increasing numbers of small power plants from renewable sources show the need to upgrade electric power systems. In future they will need to allow more flexibility, accesibility, reliability as well as energy, environmental and economic efficiency. The answer to those and many more future demands lies in Smart Grids. 
    • What is the future development of Smart grids in Slovenia? 
    • When can we expect first results?
    • Will we dog the footsteps of the developed countries as far as development is concerned, or will we stand side by side with them to jointly realise the vision of the future?

    On February 9th 2010, Ljubljana will host the first En.forum on smart grids, dubbed “Smart Grids, Challenge of Today!”. A number of local and foreign experts and representatives of the industry will try to provide answers to questions regarding development of smart grids in Slovenia, and above all outline specific solutions and reach certain agreements that will foster realisation of the set goals.
