AUW 2017 & The Fifth Huawei Power Summit

May 16-18, 2017 | Cape Town • South Africa

The AUW 2017 & The Fifth Huawei Power Summit is estimated to host more than 7000 power company executives and hundreds of international think tank experts. These industry leaders, coming from over 80 countries, will gather together to exchange their ideas on energy revolution and explore new business opportunities in Africa's power industry.
During the event, Huawei and the organizer will jointly host The Fifth Huawei Power Summit (May 17) under the theme of "Leading New ICT, The Road To Smart Grid." Traditional power grids are evolving to smart grids. The new grid development mode, featuring distribution, sharing, and low carbon emission, will eventually replace the traditional modes that suffer large sizes, siloed architectures, and high energy consumption. This has become the mega-trend of the power industry. A smart grid is the extensive integration of new ICT and the traditional power grid, and the direction of power companies' digital transformation.
Huawei is dedicated to building open ecosystems with new ICT and becoming power companies' best partner in digital transformation. On the open cooperation platform of Huawei Power Summit, decision makers, leaders, and experts from around the globe will share their insights into the hotspot topics and best practices of smart grid development in multiple fields, such as power IoT, power communications network, and power Big Data. Here, you will have a clear view on the path that world-leading power companies, such as Eskom and SGCC, take in smart evolution.
