Electricity Distribution System Operators (DSOs) from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas gathered on 27-28 January 2022 in the second worldwide Conference focused on “Setting the grid to net zero”. This global event, co-organised by the Association of European Distribution System Operators (E.DSO), the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Eurelectric, confirmed its pivotal role as a forum bringing together the most significant DSOs at global level with a shared purpose: to reach net zero, promote new strategies and strengthen resilience in the energy distribution sector. This initiative plays a key role in advancing international dialogue and cooperation in the energy field, building on speakers’ experience to boost the energy transition and the green electrification on the planet.
