How to implement Smart Grids Infrastructure for African Utilities – Smart Grids Africa will look at the steps that would need to be taken to transition the existing metering / power delivery assets into a next generation system – and the additional benefits that could be realized from this – such as better revenue protection, improved maintenance of the network, energy management etc.
Africa is currently undergoing a dramatic overhaul of its utilities in order to meet the growing demands from a steadily growing economy. Smart Grids Africa 2008 aims to sensitise African utilities, regulators, consultants and vendors involved during this period of transition.
