There will be masterclasses and bilateral workshops on various technologies such as electric smart metering, artificial intelligence, power sensing and controls, electric vehicle policies, EV charging infrastructure, technologies for the energy transition, battery technologies, and other energy storage systems for grid modernisation.
ISUW 2020 will also host a large exhibition of display stalls for different energy-related companies such as smart meters, power distribution automation, gas-insulated substations, geographical information systems, smart homes, home energy management systems, home automation along with others.
