Theme and Aim of the Conference

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. This year’s theme is on smart grids. Smart grids play a major role towards a low-carbon future because they are key to both supply and demand-side management of energy systems. Aside from technological advancement, these solutions also require political sensitivity, well-informed policy analysis, and improved understanding of stakeholder perceptions. 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. We will feature 2 keynote speakers: Professor Rikiya Abe from the University of Tokyo, and Dr. Alice Siu from Stanford University.
