About the Conference
Building on the success and reputation of the previous events, the 7th Annual Global Outage Management Forum for DSOs is the only conference on outage management in the of whole Europe.
Prior to the pandemic, a momentary outage in the middle of the day was easy to ignore. However, ensuring a reliable power supply nowadays has become an absolute must, which creates constant pressure on the local electric utility. Nevertheless, not all utilities have invested time and resources to make sure that their clients have constant access to continuous power.
Furthermore, the number of unplanned power outages is rising globally and is expected to rise even more due to aging components in networks, third-party damage, extreme weather conditions, and accelerated integration of renewable energy. In addition, renewable energy sources that are not depleted when used (e.g. solar/wind power), are making the network grid unstable due to its volatile character.
We are approaching the topic from a strategic and technical perspective: addressing automation, new technology solutions, investment into the network, and crisis communications. The focus of all our expert speaker presentations stays on the solutions to these issues. Participants will be leaving with clear, practical ideas about how to improve their outage management.
We are offering a highly interactive forum with senior level participants from the major European network operators, where all questions will be answered during the open discussions by professionals from the industry. It is a great opportunity for the participants to hear how their peers are handling the prevention and management of outages.
