Conference 1 of Digital Utilities 2022

21 June - Digital Utilities: Future Grids

In this conference, we’ll look at the evolution of energy and water networks, as we begin to integrate new technologies and new directional flows into our existing grids. We’ll look at the challenges and opportunities; and hear case studies from utilities who have cracked the code of making their networks work for them in the new, connected world.
