U.S.-Colombia Smart Grid Workshop: Partnering to Power the Future

U.S. Colombia Smart Grid Workshop: Partnering to Power the Future

Dates: February 11-12, 2014

Location: Sheraton Bogotá Hotel – Bogotá, Colombia

The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is sponsoring a two-day workshop to foster U.S. – Colombian partnerships for state-of-the-art electricity transmission and distribution projects throughout the country in cooperation with Colombia Inteligente (Smart Colombia), an industry coalition established to coordinate the implementation of smart grid technology in country. The event will highlight Colombia's smart grid projects and initiatives, U.S. technologies and the regulatory frameworks, standards, and financing mechanisms available to support them. The workshop will also focus on the applicability of demand response programs. The event will bring together high-level U.S. and Colombian power sector stakeholders, including representatives from Colombia's electric utilities, the independent system operator, the Ministry of Mines and Energy and other regulatory bodies. Representatives from U.S. companies providing smart grid equipment and services should attend to learn about upcoming opportunities and connect with senior Colombian decision makers.
