The Challenge

Across the world its projected 1.9 trillion dollars is set to be invested in DER in the next 10 years*. As a result, power industry organisations across the Asia Pacific region are increasingly facing technical challenges around the integration of distributed energy resources (DER) into existing and future networks.

Get the technical solutions you need

CIDER is the ideal forum to get the know-how you need in this rapidly emerging space. The conference focuses on creating a forum to facilitate practical information sharing between utilities, product manufacturers and communities. It sets out the challenges and opportunities presented by these technologies and will help us all build a road map for workable technical solutions.

So if you want better knowledge of how CIDER will work in our existing and future electricity networks get along to CIDER 17, the hottest topic facing the industry!
