Registration is now live for CIM 2020, 21-23 January!

We are delighted to announce that registration is now live for the premier Common Information Model 2020 conference, exhibition and networking forum. Drawing together 100+ participants to review 14+ CIM implementation case-studies over three intensive days, this ground-breaking new forum provides a clear roadmap for gaining investment and driving the practical implementation of CIM across the wider smart utility infrastructure.

Whether you are at the start of your CIM journey or have already integrated several systems, you cannot afford to miss out on this crucial conversation between like-minded CIM advocates and pioneers who are determined to push the maturity, organisation, and practical application of the standard to its next level. You will join CIM representatives from TSOs, DSOs, system suppliers and integrators who will not only address the technical configuration and interoperability challenges that are currently impeding CIM, but also discuss new frameworks for procuring CIM-based tools and technologies.

If you want to challenge the status quo, address CIM’s greatest flaws, and move the needle on this important standard and market, then join us for the most in-depth, inspirational and innovative review of CIM yet.

Discussion Themes Include:

  • Applying IEC 61970 – achieving reliable configuration between internal and external IT systems to ensure their seamless compliance with CIM standards
  • Applying IEC 61968 – establishing a robust framework for implementing CIM as DER integration accelerates within a more flexible grid environment
  • Applying IEC 62325 – effectively managing the influx of high-volume, real-time data across the energy market whilst minimising risk
  • CIM Working Group – leveraging the power and focus of the CIM working group to drive greater awareness and speed up deployment of the standard across the smart utility industry
  • CIM Configuration and Interoperability – leveraging advanced tools and technologies to support timely and cost efficient implementation of CIM and maximise operational efficiency
  • The Future of CIM – developing a robust roadmap for efficiently updating existing network models in alignment with new CIM versions

14+ Utility Case-Studies Including:

  • Chavdar Ivanov: Power System Analysis Engineer (Tennet) & Co-Convenor of Group for CGMES (ENTSO-E)
  • Svein Olsen: Enterprise Information Architect (Statnett), Co-Convenor of Group for CGMES (ENTSO-E) & Member (IEC TC 57 WGs 13 and 14)
