Please save the date for the inaugural IEC 61850 USA 2021 conference, exhibition and networking forum, taking place 26-28 January in New Orleans. Drawing together 100+ IEC 61850 implementation leaders and specialists, this ground-breaking, case-study driven conference puts the end-user centre stage and explores the implementation challenges experienced at the coal face, as well as the solutions created to support the migration from pilot project to large-scale deployment of IEC 61850.

 If you are currently charged with carrying out a feasibility study, launching a pilot project, or driving large-scale deployment of IEC 61850, you cannot afford to miss this conversation!

 There is no other meeting like it. Over three intensive days, you will get up to speed with standardisation activity, hear insights and lessons learnt through 14+ utility case-studies, get the opportunity to challenge the product development status quo, and influence the future direction of standardization activity – all in support of end user needs.

 As the program and speaker line-up are being finalized, we wanted to give you the opportunity to put the dates in your diary, request management approval to participate, and inform colleagues in other departments who could benefit from joining this conversation.
