about the event

Power Summit - Lights on

Throughout our daily lives we often take electricity for granted. Whether it is to deliver online education throughout a global pandemic, charge your smartphone to keep in touch with family, or simply keep the lights on, electricity is there.

As our society progresses and as we continue to decarbonise, electricity will become ever more present. It will power your car. It will heat your home. It will power ever smarter solutions, and it will come from a wide range of decentralised clean energy sources. More electricity will be needed for greater decarbonisation.

Keeping the lights on, though, needs the right enablers. As electrification accelerates, the grid that delivers it needs to be expanded and digitalised. Keeping the lights on cannot be taken for granted anymore. At Power Summit 2024, we will be discussing the challenges we face and the opportunities there are to keep the lights on.
