INTELEC95 Symposium 2017

‘AC or DC: Who wins the battle!’

Tuesday 11 April 2017
in Het Spoorwegmuseum in Utrecht, The Netherlands

Organisator: Stichting INTELEC95

The symposium generally focuses on three fundamental fields of activity: power electronics, energy storage and intelligent distribution networks. These activities in turn form the basis on which the continuity of energy supply for telecommunication and information technologyis based. Sustainability and the ability to quickly recover after a calamity are important incentives. 

Target audience

The Symposium is especially important for companies and institutes engaged in research, development, installation, management and maintenance of energy supply systems by and for the subject area.
