1-Day Virtual Event

. Welcome to Common Information Model 2021. Whether you are leading CIM implementation, designing secure and flexible CIM-based tools and technologies, or developing future proofed, reliable CIM software, this is the only forum that will provide you with all the in-depth practical information needed to demonstrate the full value of CIM, secure long-term investment, and speed up wide scale implementation.

Welcome to Common Information Model 2021

The 2nd annual conference provides CIM specialists with a clear roadmap for gaining investment and driving the practical implementation of CIM across 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 issues that are currently impeding CIM, but also discuss new frameworks for procuring CIM-based tools and technologies and drive its deployment across a wider range of systems.

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.

This programme consists of 12 x case-studies, 3 x technology innovation presentations, 4 x live Q&A panel sessions, a 90-minute roundtable discussion session, all in just one intensive high-value day.
