ISOLATED POWER SYSTEM CONNECT

Isolated Power System (IPS) Connect provides a unique opportunity for industry, academia and international experts working in the field of remote area power supply and isolated power systems to connect, discuss and share their ideas, present results, reflect on past experiences and discuss future projects.

Isolated Power System (IPS) Connect serves to engage, educate and empower isolated communities to embrace renewable and enabling technologies. Participants all share a common goal to reduce diesel fuel reliance, with the forum used to knowledge share, mentor and workshop innovative solutions and investment case studies. The IPS format includes professional development, problem
