Past Conferences

2017

The 2017 GREEN Grid conference took place on 15 February 2017 at the MBIE offices in Wellington. Presentations at the conference discussed Demand Flexibility and Renewable Variability, as well as New Technologies in the Distribution Network. Most research presentations at the conference were introduced by an industry speaker, to discuss the research and its application to their company. The EPECentre would like to thank the GREEN Grid conference 2017 sponsors: Powerco, Orion, and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

Dr Allan Miller (Director of the EPECentre and of GREEN Grid) introducing the conference.

2016

The 2016 GREEN Grid conference took place on 10 February 2016 at the MBIE offices in Wellington. The conference brought up to date research findings from GREEN Grid and presented tools that can be used to manage some of the changes brought about by new technologies such as photovoltaic solar power. Presentations at the conference discussed consumer drivers behind the uptake of new technologies such as solar photovoltaic systems and electric vehicles, how new technologies impact the electric grid, and how we can manage a safe, efficient and secure energy supply for New Zealanders.

All set up to go at the 2016 conference.
