Smart Energy Canada announces biggest ever program for 2010


Smart Meter deployment continued at a rapid pace in Canada in 2009, thanks to regulatory requirements. But smart meters are only one piece in the smart grid puzzle.

Spintelligent’s Smart Energy Canada and Water Meter Summit in Toronto on January 31 – 2 February looks at the whole picture through 3 days of interactive panels, workshops and presentations designed to give you  the tools necessary to make real savings in your business in 2010 and beyond by understanding and utilising the power of smart grid technology.

Smart Energy Canada looks beyond the smart meter rollout and asks:

  • What’s next for the smart grid? Is there a roadmap?
  • Beyond TOU billing: How can you leverage your meter data to improve customer service and operations?
  • Every major car manufacturer has a plug-in car on the market or in development. 1 in 5 cars will be electric within this decade – how do you prepare for that?
  • Distributed generation: how to withstand the uncertainties of integrating distributed generation that is set to pick up following the introduction of the FIT.
  • Software solutions: making the link from utility to smart grid.
