SweGRIDS Conference, 2012

On 13th December 2012 the first SweGRIDS conference was held.  SweGRIDS projects were presented by poster, and an example from each research area was presented orally also.  Research directors from ABB and Vattenfall presented the research challenges within Smart Grids that their companies are currently working on. The programme of the conference can be seen here (pdf 95 kB) .  The full presentation from Vattenfall can be seen  here (pdf 2.6 MB) .


The Poster Prize was intended for one poster, judged by representatives from the SweGRIDS sponsors. It turned out that the posters of Fang Mao and Martin Wåhlander tied in the judging, so two prizes were given.

Some of the posters can be viewed below.  Not all the presented posters are available here.  (For example, in some cases the research is not yet ready for open release, due to publications at the stage of submission.)
