AESC is pleased to announce that AESC and the Department of Geography at Hong Kong Baptist University will be organising the First Asian Energy Conference: Smart Grids, Sustainability Transition, and Innovation in Governance tentatively scheduled on November 2, 2015.
This year’s theme is on smart grids. The aim of this Conference is to provide a forum for academics to share new policy and governance practices of smart grid deployment from Asian perspectives. It will contribute to a better understanding of governance, institutional, and political challenges underpinning smart grid deployments and help formulate policy recommendations for successful smart grid deployment.
This Conference is unique in that it will feature speakers from around the world such as the US, Japan, South Korea, Germany, and the Netherlands who will share their experiences on smart grid developments worldwide and in Asia (to see featured speakers and topics, click here).
