IEC 61850 Week 2022
We are delighted to bring you this year’s edition of IEC 61850 Week 2022 in the safe, secure and collaborative in-person environment of the Parkgate Hotel, in Cardiff UK. Whilst the pandemic has exacerbated the need for digital transformation, remote access and cybersecurity, meeting virtually has slowed down the pace of standardisation development, community information sharing, and long-term partnership building. Now is the time for the IEC 61850 community to return to in-person, where discussions can go deeper, interactions can be more extensive, and relationship building can be more intensive. The programme research for this year’s event revealed that the IEC 61850 community is ready to embrace the next phase of IEC 61850 deployments, in terms of laying the organisational foundations, embracing next generation virtualised and centralised architectures, adopting automated engineering and testing procedures.
