Energy Technology Conference Unites Top Industry Executives to Share Their Best Practices and Strategies for Today's Global Market

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - Frost & Sullivan's Principal Consultant Farah Saeed and Research Director Veerender Kaul look forward to serving as panel members at the 2011 Smart Grid Technology Conference taking place June 1 and 2, 2011 in San Jose, California. Saeed will serve on "The Opportunities Created by Advanced Distribution Management System (DMS) and Demand Response," focusing on defining these technologies and advances as part of the overall smart grid solution. Kaul will be serving in another panel geared towards disseminating the benefits, opportunities and steps to prepare for the incorporation and management of electric vehicle (EV) technologies into the smart grid, entitled "EV Update."

The 2011 Smart Grid Technology Conference will discuss the latest technologies in energy transmission, distribution and consumption solutions, as well as how companies purchase and utilize those tools. The conference will also explore means of enhancing operations from the viewpoints of key industry executives to keep up with significant changes and increased competition in the market. This event is a one of a kind gathering, a confluence of progressive technology leaders from around the globe. It is a great opportunity to network and gain an understanding from peer group members as to the challenges currently at play, and how companies are overcoming these challenges and driving productivity improvements.

"Investments in smart grid technologies are expected to prosper in the near and long term," said Saeed. "While advanced meter infrastructure held a dominant position in 2010, it is projected distribution grid management that will take the largest market share of smart grid investments by 2012 worldwide. This is being driven by strategies to maintain and implement real time coordination between power supply and demand, while avoiding interruptions caused by the growing presence of distributed and renewable power as well as electric vehicles."
