Conference Overview 2017

What would happen to an emergency ward during a blackout? How much money would a credit card company lose? What about airports, data centers, and other forms of connectivity? Mission-critical power systems are designed to support critical facilities and kick into action whenever the main grid fails.

However, as each facility has a variety of demands and regulations depending on scale and budget, they have different critical power system requirements. In addition, the global trend of big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) drives the need for robust, resilient power supply systems as more and more facilities rely on data for their operation, and this raises issues such as energy efficiency, cybersecurity, and rightsizing. 

Buyers Forum @ Critical Power Expo is the industry’s only free-to-attend technology conference dedicated to helping end users, engineers, and OEMs make the right specifying decisions and select the best power system components for mission-critical applications.

The forum is specifically designed to discuss technology trends, power system component capabilities within new and existing infrastructures, scalability, rightsizing, commissioning, automated and remote monitoring, microgrids, and energy storage solutions.

Buyers Forum @ Critical Power Expo offers you a three-day program filled to the brim with end-user and supplier presentations, giving you the opportunity to:

  • Stay up to date on capabilities and cost modelling of the latest critical power system technology
  • Learn design strategies for eliminating stranded capacity and overinvestment
  • Anticipate power needs of the future by reviewing the impact of industry trends on critical power systems





This has been the most meaningful training, full of new insights that equip me to fight the challenges
