WELCOME TO EXCHANGE – WELCOME TO PROGRESS!
THE ENERGY GRID OF THE FUTURE FOR A SECURE AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SUPPLY
Alternative energies, e-mobility and carbon dioxide reduction are essential elements of the energy turnaround, happenening slowly but steadily. The energy sector faces significant challenges in the future. With the energy transition, also the electrical grid is changing. An awareness about this makes us work today on how to find solutions for tomorrow’s demands. The exceptional and novel situation in the energy market necessitates new forms of organisation and orchestration of the electrical grid. A challenge that adresses all authorities, educational institutions and companies in the market.
Energy generation from diverse sources, including renewable sources, is a necessity worldwide. Energy generation options such as onshore and offshore wind turbines, photovoltaic systems and battery storage systems are becoming increasingly important and are being installed and integrated into existing energy grids. And the importance of secure energy storage and supply has never been as evident as today. Establishing, expanding and maintaining a functioning nationwide energy supply is central to every national economy.
RENOWNED EXPERTS AND EXCITING SUPPORTING PROGRAM
The Swiss T&D Days offer the platform to discuss current events and future challenges for electrical transmission and distribution networks and to exchange ideas with power technology experts. Aspects and trends in the area of service life extension of primary equipment through monitoring or the challenges of operating equipment through DC voltage are also of interest.
The Swiss T&D Days is a knowledge and dialogue platform for decision makers in the professional environment of electrical grids and high voltage technology. The organizer is the PFIFFNER group of companies – a manufacturer of energy technology solutions – with roots in the innovative energy canton of Aargau, Switzerland. Within the framework of this platform, the “electrical energy network of the future” will be highlighted with a focus on innovative technological solutions. Thus, there is a new industry meeting place where relevant players can inform themselves, network and drive ideas and new developments.
Engineers and those responsible for transmission and distribution networks and market players in power generation will meet on site, i.e. experts from energy supply companies who are responsible for plants at utilities, industry or in the field of renewable energies, electric railroads or e-mobility. Also in focus are sales partners, purchasers / Purchasing managers of major customers, business managers / CEO, technically responsible and also very important, students and new talents from research and business.
BROAD RANGE OF TOPICS FOR INTERESTED SPECIALISTS
The conference is aimed at a broad audience of experts and specialists. Specialists and decision-makers will illuminate the topics from various perspectives: from the general viewpoint of science, grid operators and cooperation between industry and colleges / universities, against the background of strengthening high-voltage competence and the professional environment of electrical grids. Therefore, the viewpoint of the various education and training partners, or the viewpoint of vocational training, is of great importance. Current topics such as more sustainable insulation solutions, high-voltage direct current transmission and CO2-free infrastructures are important. Grid expansion has long been indispensable and is therefore an overarching theme of the contributions and the discussion. But also which innovations will be promoted or demanded in the context of the energy transition are in the center of interest.
EXCHANGE OF EXPERIENCE AND NETWORKING
The aim of the event is to bring the energy community together to discuss technological solution approaches and to network. What makes it very special is that a mix of experienced and younger generation representatives of professors and industry representatives will speak on the main topics of discussion and topics at the Swiss T&D Days.
This event will allow members of the energy community to learn from each other and build relationships that can lead to further collaboration.
