The International Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) eGrid Conference has selected Auckland for its 22nd edition.
The hybrid conference, set to be held in December 2022, will bring together world-leading energy experts from government, industry and academia to share ideas, challenges and solutions to the planet’s energy challenges.
The bid – secured by ACB, a division of Auckland Unlimited, and with support from Tourism New Zealand – is expected to attract over 200 delegates, with an estimated 60-70 percent international attendees. This is the first time eGrid has been held in New Zealand.
The three-day conference bid was won by Dr Nirmal Nair, from the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Software Engineering at the University of Auckland and ACB’s Auckland Advocate Alliance member.
