MKI Smart Grid Webinar Series
Everything is becoming smart nowadays, including the ways to generate, distribute, transmit and consume energy (particularly electricity) which lead to a well-known term “Smart Grid”. Many studies confirm its huge benefits to shape a better future with cutting-edge energy technologies.
A study done by Mondor Intelligence stated that the global smart grid network market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 11% over the period of 2020-2025, with a base year of 2019.
Moreover, the ASEAN smart grid market has continually grown and demonstrated significant benefits to consumers and large scale vendors (Telcoms and Computing Market Reports, 2018). The market is projected to grow from US 1,248.8 Million in 2019 to US 2,949.6 Million by 2024, at a CAGR 18.76% from 2019 to 2024.
However, poor initiatives to expand and modernize the grid infrastructure and the problem of low accessibility to electricity in some underdeveloped regions are highly expected to limit the growth of the market projected.
Nowadays PLN investment and adoption for smart grid is below other utilities in ASEAN regions grid. Nevertheless, PLN plans to accelerate the smart grid development in several islands in Indonesia.
The Indonesian Electrical Power Society (IEPS/MKI) as the stakeholder organization which consist of the electrical power stakeholders in Indonesia and also the government partner will organize a virtual seminar/webinar on smart grid technology and its ecosystems. The webinar will discuss and share the latest development of smart grid in Indonesia and the Asian region.
The MKI Smart Grid Webinar Series being held virtually in April 2021 - January 2022 will discuss comprehensive topics and perspectives on smart grid, including:
The fundamental concept, elements, structure of the smart grid and its ecosystem,
How smart grid guarantees the adaptability and capability of handling new systems and components,
Challenges related to the international standardization and requirements of smart grid technologies and implementation, and
How to unlock the growing smart grid technology market in the developing world from the point of views of policy makers, state-owned utility companies and private companies.
