The conference is being held by the Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – Power and Energy Society (IEEE PES), the world’s largest forum for sharing technological developments in the electric power industry. Each year the Asia – Pacific region of the IEEE-PES holds its Power Engineering and Energy conference, where the leading power engineering researchers and industry practitioners present and discuss the latest developments on emerging power industry issues, of critical importance, to countries in the region. This is your opportunity to learn the newest innovations and technologies that will be essential in successfully developing the power system of the future, as well as the changes and challenges confronting the industry along the way. You will hear researchers from the region’s leading power engineering universities and research centres explain their latest technical discoveries, and listen to utility executives and practicing power industry engineers discuss their challenges, experiences and solutions. This is the first time that the conference will be held in Australia, having been successfully run for the last six years in leading Asian cities such as Hong Kong in 2014. This year’s conference will cover a broad range of power industry topics, including the challenges of rapidly growing economies, managing ageing infrastructure in developed countries, and, the network integration problems of intermittent renewable generation and distributed technologies. So make plans to attend the region’s pre-eminent power engineering and energy conference that will be held in Brisbane, Australia, on 15th – 18th November 2015.
