The T&D senior executive is saddled with meeting reliability standards, easing the burden of energy prices on consumers, whilst remaining competitive and profitable.
On top of this they must also be advancing in the application of cutting-edge solutions
to tackle the numerous challenges facing the electric power industry.

In a time of constant climate change and rising disposable income, European demand for electricity has never been higher. The modern consumer requires a reliable, secure and affordable electric system to grow and prosper. Yet limited resources, an ageing grid and increasing regulation are posing major barriers for utility companies to meet this demand. Unless substantial amounts of capital are invested in new generation, transmission and distribution facilities, quality will degrade and costs will go up. Improving the existing electricity system and revolutionising the electric grid is imperative to enhance customer service, gain competitive advantage and boost profitability and the European quality of life.

Sustaining high levels of reliability from existing T&D assets has never been more challenging. Transmission and distribution professionals are in a challenging position, having to overcome bottlenecks in the transmission system and effectively respond to changing customer needs for electricity.

The European T&D Summit 2008 will bring together the most senior transmission and distribution players in Europe to discuss the optimal ways to achieve operational efficiency and optimise performance with limited budgets. As a sponsor at this event, you will have the opportunity to meet with qualified T&D professionals from leading European utility companies through a number of business one-to-one meetings and many networking activities. All delegates are pre-qualified to ensure that they hold a minimum budget and are key decision makers for T&D budget allocation. Sponsors are also entitled to attend the strategic summit sessions lead by the utility industry’s most high-ranking executives and leading strategists. The European T&D Summit 2008 presents a unique opportunity to develop meaningful relationships and valuable business relations.
