YEP-SA – SA Power Networks' Network Innovation Centre Tour

Venue: SA Power Networks' Network Innovations Centre

Date: Tue 24 Apr 2018 @ 2:45pm to 4:15pm


You are invited to join the Young Energy Professionals on a tour of the Network Innovation Centre (NIC), to view the wide range of displays and gain some insight into where the future of the electricity network might be heading, and the role that customers, networks and other key stakeholders may play in that future.

The NIC was established in 2012 in response to significant disruptive changes that had become apparent in the electricity industry. The objective of the centre was to provide SA Power Networks with a facility in which to trial and test new technologies that could impact on our business and customers in the immediate and mid-term future.

The NIC has both both network side and customer side technologies on display including a section of distribution network that can be viewed close-up as well as a ‘smart house’ which integrates solar PV, battery storage, and a home energy management system with a range of traditional appliances. Smart meters and an electric vehicle are also on display. This is a great opportunity to hear about the latest developments and emerging directions in electrical and lighting infrastructure.
