June 26, 2012 - PRLog -- Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is only the beginning of the smart grid value chain for utilities. Advances in the automation of the feeder and distribution network are resulting in greater cost savings, operational efficiencies, service quality, and reliability. As the rollout of AMI begins to approach completion in a number of regions, utilities are turning to distribution automation (DA) as a key strategy for maximising the effectiveness of their smart grid investment and realising the value that network intelligence brings to grid operations.

The second annual Distribution Automation Europe conference will examine the latest technology advances and applications of distribution automation in the electric utility network. This will be done through analysis of real-world deployments, lessons learned, and success strategies for leveraging DA to achieve the full promise of the smart grid from our industry leading speaker line-up.
