Upcoming global events

Global Electronics Forum and Energy Storage 2013

By Claire Marchand

This month we would like to draw your attention to two global events that may be of interest to the IEC community.

GEF-450x450
GEF will focus on connectivity from a manufacturing perspective

Global Electronics ForumShanghai, China – 13-15 March 2013

The IEC regularly lends its support to key global and regional industry events allowing them to put forward IEC endorsement on their website and materials. This is the case with GEF (Global Electronics Forum) which is scheduled to take place next March in Shanghai, China.

This meeting of top executives from the electronics industry will focus on connectivity from a manufacturing perspective. The event will feature executive-led discussions on topics including: product innovation, design, maximizing opportunities in developing economies, supply chain management and connectivity challenges.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet with key decision makers from key electronics manufacturing sectors, including consumer electronics, telecommunications and automotive.

Energy Storage 2013 Nice, France – 27-28 February 2013

ACI (Active Communications International) will be holding its 3rd Annual Energy Storage summit in February 2013 in Nice, France. The event will bring together senior executives from the utilities industry, TSOs (Transmission System Operators) and DSOs (Distribution System Operators), EES (Electrical Energy Storage) owners, developers as well as manufacturers to conduct a thorough cost analysis and comparison of various EES systems and their roles in the business strategies and blueprints of grid operators.

The conference will have a heavy focus on case study examples of large scale RES (Renewable Energy Source) projects across the globe, discussing how they overcame economic, political and technological challenges to improve penetration of intermittent RES.
