Thought Leaders Series: Powering tomorrow's grids 2023: Part 2

This webinar will focus on exciting technological innovation for a sustainable energy future.

Engineers Australia

Electricity will be the backbone of the entire energy system in the quest towards carbon-neutrality and the achievement of sustainability goals. New technology and greater collaboration will be required to modernise the grid and unlock opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint of high-energy use industries. In this session, we will explore game-changing technologies that are improving the environmental performance and safety of critical assets, delivering public transport with zero tailpipe emissions and extending the life of high-value equipment through digitalisation.

Who should attend

This event is relevant for anyone working in Asset Management, Network Planning, or Electrical Engineering in the Electrical Transmission & Distribution, Data Centers, Power Generation, Industry (Oil & Gas), Mining, Transportation, or Renewables sectors.
