Smart Meters are currently being installed by the millions around the world: what’s the next step in the development of the Smart Grid? As a delegate at the second-annual Smart Grid Electronics Forum (SGEF ’11), at the Crowne Plaza Hotel San Jose – Silicon Valley on October 24 & 25, you will hear a roundtable discussion about the future direction of Smart Grid developments. To be sure, smart electronic equipment (Communications, Computing & Storage, Consumer, Power Conversion, Automotive, Alternative Energy, Industrial, Medical, and so on) will be required to get the maximum benefit from the Smart Grid. At SGEF ’11 you will learn how the smart grid will change the design of all types of electronic equipment.
To be co-hosted by Darnell Group and Hearst Electronics Group, SGEF ’11 features an expanded schedule with sessions on Smart Meters & Energy Measurement, Communications & Security, Integrating Dispersed Energy Resources, Applications and Case Studies, Home Automation Networks, Industrial Applications, and more. In addition to a strong focus on today’s "best practices," SGEF ’11 will look forward toward next-generation design solutions for electronic equipment. The program is here:.
