31st Annual Canadian Power Conference and Networking Centre
November 21 - November 22
Across the world the power grid is entering a period of major upheaval. Many believe the system is approaching a critical turning point in terms of massive electrification, the integration of vastly increased numbers of players, a shift in focus towards the grid edge, de-carbonization, the widespread deployment of game-changing storage, responsive energy management technology, digitization, sharing technology, new approaches for ensuring resource adequacy, and more. How rapidly will these changes take place, how will they interact, and how to prepare for them? These are the opening questions for APPrO 2019. There is little doubt that the future belongs to those who can see the inflection points ahead and put in place the necessary strategies to embrace them.
