Demonstrating the full value of CIM to secure investment and speed up wide-scale implementation
21-23 January 2020 | Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Welcome to Common Information Model 2020

This case-study driven conference draws together Common Information Model leaders from TSOs and DSOs across Europe, for 3 intensive days of CIM implementation reviews. Going beyond the fundamentals of the CIM standard, this programme offers the opportunity to get to grips with the practical challenges that arise as you embark on your CIM implementation journey and the strategies and tactics that will enable you to navigate these with ease. By benchmarking your plans against the experiences of pioneering utilities, you will be able to establish a framework for your own CIM implementation that can be replicated across systems and domains, so that you deliver true value through CIM and transform it from a perceived overhead into a solid long term investment with demonstrable ROI.

 

 

Programme highlights include:

  • 14+ Utility Case-Studiesgain in-depth insights into the latest CIM implementation projects from pioneering European utilities and understand how new tools and technologies are being developed to support CIM based integration
  • Strategic Panel Discussion – hear senior management representatives of utility organisations discuss the value propositions and roadmaps that would get their attention and secure their investment in CIM
  • End-user Roundtable Discussions – choose from a selection of intimate roundtable discussions, each addressing a key theme arising from the day’s discussions, allowing you to gain deeper insights into the most specific issues impacting your CIM implementation
  • Technology Innovation Panel – quiz the leading tech experts, stress test their product development plans, and influence the direction of their product innovations in favour of end-user requirements
  • Open Source Simulation Modelling Tutorial – take advantage of this two part 90-minute deep-dive into integrating recently developed opensource systems for advanced power grid simulation modelling to support CIM implementation, and how this can be used to support real life applications
  • Networking Evening Reception – the opportunity to relax and unwind after a full day of presentations and panel discussions, meet with colleagues across the European Smart Grid CIM community, reflect on new ideas and create new opportunities for collaboration
  • Solution Zone – visit the exhibition area where you will see a display of 10+ CIM-enabled solution providers, get advice from those at the leading edge of implementing CIM, and develop new partnerships to take your CIM programme to the next level
