Yes, I am  No one is attending yet.

Event Description

By 2030, it is estimated that 66% of the world population will live in urban areas, this represents a massive challenge in how we build and manage cities but also provides a significant opportunity to improve the lives of billions of people.  During the Smart Cities 2018 event, organizations and governments will learn how data analytics, new technologies and cyber and physical security systems will improve such things as city transportation, parking, water and waste management, energy usage and a variety of other infrastructure issues that result in the operation of cities and the overall lifestyle of urban citizens.

The Smart Cities 2018 Conference will specifically look at:

  • The collaboration of government and utilities
  • How smarter healthcare can help create smarter cities
  • Gathering, aggregating and analyzing data
  • Developing connected intersections and smarter transit
  • Improving public safety through emergency telehealth and navigation
  • Growth in connected vehicle capabilities
  • Greater real-time citizen interaction
  • Linking autonomous vehicles with government sensors and networks
  • Securing smart cities

This interactive and engaging conference will bring you the opportunity to hear best practices, lessons learned and ideas that are being implemented globally when it comes to creating a smart city infrastructure that not only can be implemented today but can be sustainable for the future.

As Smart Cities affect every citizen and business, the Smart Cities 2018 Conference will be taking a holistic look into how Smart City development and planning affect the entire ecosystem.  Therefore, we encourage that individuals throughout the Smart City ecosystem join us in sharing their stories and learning how what they do affects your entire community.  We believe that by bringing together this diverse group of stakeholders will bring the “wave of the future” to you and your city.  Attendance will be comprised of:

  • Government Policy Makers & Managers
  • Mayors and Municipal Leaders
  • Urban Planning Professionals
  • Telecommunication Companies
  • Electric, Water and Gas Utilities
  • Education Leaders (K—12 and Higher Education)
  • Healthcare and Hospital Executives
  • Social Services Professionals
  • Developers and Construction Companies
  • Electric Vehicle and Transportation Companies
  • Financial and Investment Professionals
  • Smart Grid Executives
  • Communication Technology Providers
  • Big Data & Analytics Companies
  • IT and Technology Companies

Learning Outcomes Include:

  • Examine Smart City Trends in the United States and Across the World
  • Improve Collaboration between Government, Communities, Utilities and Businesses to accelerate the deployment of smart city services
  • Determine how government and healthcare can work together to create a healthy smart city
  • Leverage data collection and analysis technologies to transmit real-time information about traffic and parking conditions
  • Utilize wireless technology among and between vehicles and infrastructure to improve safety, efficiency and usability
  • Identify ways to reduce environmental issues and pollution through smart technology
  • Discuss the ways a smart city can also be sustainable
  • Understand how data can assist in building zoning and amenity creation
  • Determine how to use analytics to minimize the risk of overloading important elements of a city’s infrastructure
  • Leverage utility assets (such as data and ICT resources) to enable non-energy initiatives
  • Examine the role utilities and telecommunications companies play in creating a resilient city
  • Determine how cities can prepare for, prevent or most effectively respond to natural and man-made disasters
  • Discuss the latest trends in smart cities as it relates to IoT
  • Create scalable business models for cybersecurity in smart cities
  • Examine what citizens want from their smart city and how to deliver
  • Identify best practices for buildings to communicate with vehicles
  • Optimize Opportunities with Energy, Water and Waste Management through Smart Cities
  • Create effective action plans for decarbonization

About the Organizers

EUCI is a family-operated company founded nearly 30 years ago and headquartered in beautiful Denver, Colorado. It was started by a woman trying to fill an educational gap (or void) in the marketplace and has grown to include over 20 employees providing conferences and courses all over North America.

We have a passion for delving into, exploring and helping shape the industries we work with.  We offer effective solutions and seek to help industry professionals make informed, intelligent decisions to strategically improve their position in today’s challenging and evolving business environment.  We are focused on providing in-depth programming and education for our attendees and handle all aspects of our events – from researching topics and finding the right experts, to logistics and on-site planning and execution, EUCI leads the way in producing the highest quality conferences, seminars, workshops, and courses.

What does EUCI stand for?

It originally was the acronym for Electric Utility Consultants, Inc. but as our company has grown we have expanded our reach and now include the Oil & Gas Industry, Renewable Energy, Water/Wastewater, as well as Emerging Technologies and we continue to grow into new fields.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide an objective, independent perspective on new and emerging practices from across industries (Electric, Oil & Gas, Water/Wastewater and more) by offering quality professional development opportunities that encourage dialog and help spread best practices.

he “surplus” generation of renewable energy resources — wind, solar and in some cases, hydro — that exceeds the ability of the power system to deploy the energy available, is increasingly resulting in incidences of curtailment. These episodes of “turning off the spigot” can be the source of great consternation among project developers, utilities and renewable resource advocates. Rejection of available renewable energy is counterintuitive. In the face of vigorous de-carbonization efforts, expanding renewable portfolio mandates, tax and other incentives to stimulate greater renewable energy production, why would “free, clean and green” fuel-sourced power be dismissed at certain times? This seeming contradiction is present where renewable and distributed energy resources proliferate in a few areas of North America today; tomorrow, it is likely to be widespread. The problem remains that when more renewable energy is available than can be absorbed by the system, grid stability suffers and real-time market performance erodes. These system conflicts can be reduced through other measures, such as transmission capacity expansion, market enlargement, storage, and flexibility improvements in baseload generation resources. At present, though, these options are either jurisdictionally, technically or economically infeasible. That leaves curtailment as one of the few, remaining, plausible methods for shedding this orphan power. This program will examine the power system issues associated with renewable energy over-production relative to load and system capacity. It will review what tools are available to minimize these impacts, devoting particular attention to curtailment. The symposium will also consider ways that curtailment is being addressed today, how market and bilateral transactions are adapting compensation to accommodate curtailment, case studies of active network management of curtailment in the U.S. and Europe, and how renewable energy goals are achievable if curtailment is deployed. Learning Outcomes Discuss challenges associated with “surplus” renewable energy on the grid Review economic and financial impacts of variable renewable energy on wholesale power markets Evaluate options to address “surplus” renewable energy output Examine optimization of economic outcomes through curtailment Assess examples of active network management of renewable energy generation Analyze whether overbuilding capacity and curtailing excess production can still result in renewable energy goals attainment Discuss adapting market compensation to accommodate curtailment Identify negative pricing patterns in wholesale energy markets Discuss case studies of market participants favored and dis-favored by negative pricing Assess project developer perspectives of negative pricing and possible remedies Credits
