integrated within market-demand driven and climatic reactive response systems. As a
consequence, the electricity sector is undergoing a dramatic overhaul in terms of the development of
key assets and technologies that will enable the transition to new business models and an
increasingly distributed energy paradigm.

As Europe’s most exclusive strategic forum for the power utility industry, the Power Europe annually
features the European Power Distribution & Transmission Summit (EPD). Here DSO, TSO and
power utility representatives, regulators and distribution architects have the opportunity to hear from
the most qualified experts bringing the issues to life using the most recent, high profile and relevant
case-studies.

For DSOs we examine how to successfully build upon IT and analytics capabilities; merging OT
systems; driving real time visibility; the automation and control of networks; and improving asset
management through predictive processes. Case studies also feature the integration of small scale
distributed generation and electric vehicles with new and flexible approaches and strategic
partnerships. For TSOs the focus is on increasing their co-operation with DSOs, balancing their
systems, securing their security of supply and evaluating the impact of emerging disruptive
technologies on their business models.

Featuring over 60 industry speakers from leading European power utilities, T&D companies, power
technology developers and financiers including:The European Commission, RWE, Finnish Energy
Market Authority; CEER, ENEL S.p.A, Vattenfall Europe Innovation, TENNET, Elektrilevi, Axpo Italia
SpA, ESB Networks, Etela-Savon Energia, CEZ, VERBUND, Smart Energy Demand Coalition,
Eurelectric, , ESB ECARS, ESB Innovation, Acciona, Poyry, PGE POLSKA, & many more!
