Facing the Challenges of Aging T&D Infrastructure
December 7-8, 2016 | New Orleans, LA
Faced with aging transmission and distribution systems and limited O&M budgets, utilities are being pressed to maximize the lifespan of their current equipment while facing heavy scrutiny from both internal and external stakeholders. This conference will provide attendees with clear strategies for managing classifying and prioritizing the repair and replacement of their aging T&D systems.
The format for this conference is meant to be as interactive as possible for attendees allowing them to engage in meaningful question and answer sessions for each presentation as well as a facilitated round table discussion that will bring forth any remaining questions and topics for open discussion among all attendees and speakers. Focusing on real experiences from leading utilities, attendees will be equipped with tools to address problem components and justify their maintenance decisions to management, regulators, and external stakeholders.
