Providing a platform for off-grid energy players to meet and
share information on projects and technologies


The “Off Grid & Stand Alone Power Conference”, formerly known as the Remote Area Power Supply Conference, is now in its 5th year. The forum was launched to create a platform for off-grid energy players to meet and share information on projects and technologies. It has become an annual meeting place for industry participants to share learnings and perspectives.

Over the past 5 years, the off-grid sector has been evolving at a fast pace sustained by the transformation of the global energy industry with the introduction of new technologies, the increasing use of renewable energy and the rising prices of traditional energy supplies. The off-grid electricity industry shares common challenges with an environment that is characterised by the remoteness, the non-access to the State electricity grid and a variety of energy requirements with customers ranging from community groups, businesses and major energy users.

The “Off Grid & Stand Alone Power Conference” proposes two days of in-depth discussions around the current changes and challenges affecting the industry. Discussions revolve around practical cases studies, project demonstrations, technologies, system issues, batteries, regulations, maintenance, communication strategies, finance, and international perspectives.
