The dual 2019 PEAC/ESIC Summit will be held at the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, WA.
PEAC 2019, “Taking it to the Edge: System Awareness, Integration, and Optimization,” will be the 21st in the series that was formerly known as the Western Power Delivery Automation Conference (WPDAC). With a strong industry presence in power and energy automation, PEAC has established itself as a leading forum that attracts practicing engineers, technical staff, R&D personnel, managers, and manufacturers, as well as university faculty and students, to share their experience and ideas. About 200 U.S. and international participants attended PEAC 2018 in Spokane. For PEAC 2019, we expect papers that discuss case studies and pilot projects in smart grid, power grid automation, intelligent control, security, SCADA, networks and communications, and project management.
The 2019 ESIC Summit theme is “Grid Resiliency: The intersection of the utility business model, regulatory policy, and the research and innovation pipeline.” The continued delivery of reliable and safe electric power is critical to our economy and society. This paramount responsibility is imperiled by fundamental changes in generation dynamics, load diversity, customer demands, and shareholder expectations. At the same time utilities are searching for even greater service reliability and resilience to all system perturbations. Join us for a half-day conversation to explore this complex landscape and engage with utility leaders, policy experts, and technology visionaries.
