"Now in its fourth year, the ISGT conference has assembled some of the industry's top minds and professionals to further advance smart-grid innovation," said Saifur Rahman, ISGT 2013 conference chair.

According to a recently released survey commissioned by IEEE and conducted by Zpryme Research & Consulting, Europe and North America are the leaders in adopting and utilizing distributed generation, microgrids, and storage technology. The survey report, "Power Systems of the Future: The Case for Energy Storage, Distributed Generation, and Microgrids," states that these regions stand to "takethe lead when it comes to developing and deploying next-generation distributed energy systems."


Rahman continued: "The development and deployment of smart-grid technologies continues to be at the forefront of many conversations in the world of energy. Many of these pivotal discussions take place at ISGT, helping lead the industry to next-generation distributed energy systems solutions and adoption."

Conference attendees will hear and see paper and panel presentations and can participate in discussions on the following topics:

  • impact of smart grid on distributed energy resources (electric cars, demand response, distributed generation and storage);
  • smart sensors and advanced metering infrastructure;
  • cyber-security systems (intelligent monitoring and outage management);
  • wide-area protection, communication and control in energy systems;
  • power and energy system applications (generation, transmission, distribution, markets, operations and planning), and
  • energy management systems (with applications to building and home automation) and smart-grid standards.

ISGT conference co-sponsoring societies include IEEE-USA, IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society, IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Power Electronics Society, IEEE Systems Council and IEEE Signal Processing Society.
