IEC 61850 Global 2018 – 150+ IEC 61850 specialists and implementation leaders convene in Berlin for a review of the most recent implementations globally

 

Now in its 5th edition the Phoenix Forums IEC 61850 Europe conference re-brands and attracts global participation. Taking place 16-18 October 2018 in Berlin, the IEC 61850 Global 2018 draws together 150+ IEC 61850 specialists and implementation leaders for 3 intensive days of global utility implementation reviews.

 

This year’s agenda assesses new approaches to achieving multi-vendor multi-edition interoperability within the substation whilst identifying new ways to drive deployment of the standard across the wider smart grid.

 

“IEC 61850 has reached a tipping point, it is now fully accepted and on the investment agenda of the vast majority of European utilities” says Mandana White, Director at Phoenix Forums, organisers of IEC 61850 Global 2018. “What’s been interesting this year is to see how fast utilities outside of Europe, particularly in the US and Canada, are starting to embrace it.”

 

As a result, this year’s programme reflects a more global participation, both on the speaker line-up and in the audience. With all global stakeholders convening in one place to review standardisation activity, share implementation experiences, identify new product development opportunities, and create new partnerships, take-up of the standard globally is set to speed up exponentially, creating economies of scale that will lead to more cost-effective deployments across the wider smart grid.
