An Announcement and Call for Papers has been issued for the Third-Annual DC Building Power Asia conference (DCBPA ’11) to be held in December in Taipei, Taiwan. Building on the success of last year’s event, this focused two-day international conference will attract an international audience to discuss high-voltage and low-voltage dc distribution in facilities such as data centers, commercial and industrial buildings and residences. The theme of this year’s event will be: "Integrating Buildings with the Smart Grid."
"We are excited about the expanded scope of this year’s event," stated Jeff Shepard, President of Darnell Group. "We have an expanded Advisory Committee, being chaired by Dr. Tsai-Fu-Wu, Professor and Director of the Elegant Power Application Research Center at Taiwan’s National Chung Cheng University and internationally-recognized expert in dc microgrid technologies. And this year’s event will feature a tour of a working DC MicroGrid and Smart Meter lab at CHEM (Chung-Hsin Electric & Machinery Mfg. Corp.)," Shepard concluded.
