Conference sessions
The main venue for presentations which will bring you up to date on the latest knowledge in the Distrcit Energy Sector.

Workshop sessions ‐ presentations and dialogue in groups
The aim of the workshops is to address issues and topics which need to be discussed in depth, in combination with sharing knowledge and experience from the different countries.

Each workshop is at least 90 minutes and starts with a number of presentations. The presentations provide information addressing the topic of the workshop. Some are picked from the submitted abstracts, others are invited speaker. The length of the presentation is decided by the organizer of the workshop, but would typical be 10 minutes.

After the presentation, there will be group discussion or plenary discussions. The details of the workshop will be further elaborated by the representative from the programme committee who is organizing the workshop.

Exhibition and networking
Special focus will be given to networking opportunities and technology promotions. SDEC will be operating an exclusive brand awareness exhibition during the event and give its participants to opportunity to build up new business relations. Having the conference and exhibition in the same facility provide a unique opportunity for the exhibitors to showcase their projects, services and equipment.
