Technology for the 21st Century Electric Utility
The Grid of the Future™ Symposium is sponsored by the CIGRE US National Committee (USNC) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).
The Symposium, hosted by FirstEnergy, will be a forum for the participants to discuss state-of-the-art innovations in generation, transmission, distribution, and innovative smart grid technologies. The Symposium will feature plenary sessions, technical paper sessions, and tutorials by international experts. Contributions from Next Generation Network (NGN) young engineers are encouraged.
