Covid-19 Update
We are expecting to resume our in-person events from January 2021.

Welcome to Smart Grid Big Data 2021

In 2019, the  5th edition of this must-attend smart grid big data conference, exhibition and networking forum drew together leading data management, grid analytics and AI/ML implementation leaders and specialists from across the European electric utility landscape. It provided an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to review 20+ utility specific big data case-studies over three intensive days, benefitting from the insights gained from the technology innovation panel discussions, end-user focused round table debates, and facilitated networking with a highly focused group of utility big data professionals.

Discussion themes included: the demonstration of big data ROI to secure further investment, the leveraging the power of data lakes, the utilisation of next-generation visualisation tools and techniques, the development of attendees data science talent pool, the application of big data to smart grid specific use-cases such as predictive maintenance, non-technical losses, load balancing, demand response, the leveraging of AI/ML innovations to future proof and propel attendees big data capabilities to the next level.
