Conference: Smart Grids Africa
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Presenter: Matthew Laherty
Abstract: Presented by Matthew Laherty at Smart Grids Africa

This presentation will cover the energy challenge and practical strategies for conservation.  Special attention is paid to the load-side of the energy challenge.  Attendees should leave the presentation with an awareness of the way in which passive conservation strategies combine with technology to improve energy efficiency.   Moreover, there will be a discussion around the way in which programs should be promoted and incentivized.  The presentation will also provide a glimpse into future energy conservation mechanisms and trends.
