The IEEE PES ISGT Europe 2021 (ISGT Europe 2021) is organized by IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) and Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, 18.-21.10.2021

The conference has been planned to be an in-person event. Virtual sessions will be organized for those participants having travel issues or willing to present the paper virtually.

The aim of the conference is to provide an international forum for experts to promote, share, and discuss innovations and developments in the field of smart grid technologies and applications. The academic and industrial community will address new challenges and share solutions at the interface of technology, information, and complex systems, and discuss future research directions. IEEE PES ISGT-Europe 2021 will feature keynotes, plenary sessions, paper, and poster sessions, industry presentations, and panels by worldwide experts on the smart grid and related technologies.

We invite the submission of original, unpublished technical papers on topics including but not limited to:

  • New Smart technologies in different energy sectors and energy systems
  • Industry experience in deploying smart grid technologies for power generation, transmission, distribution, energy conversion, and storage
  • Smart multi-energy infrastructures and the environment
