The IEEE PES ISGT Europe 2024 (ISGT Europe 2024) is organized by IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) and University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, Croatia, on October 14th-17th, 2024.

This year’s conference theme is “Towards Net-Zero: Integrating Smart Technologies for a Decarbonized Connected Energy Grid.

The IEEE PES ISGT Europe conference is an IEEE PES flagship conference organized in Europe. It addresses power grid modernization and the applications for the wide use of information and communication technologies for more intelligent operation of electric power systems and integration of renewable and distributed energy resources.

The IEEE PES ISGT Europe 2024 conference will feature keynotes, plenary sessions, panels, industry exhibits, paper and poster presentations by worldwide experts on smart grid and related technologies. Researchers, practitioners and students worldwide are invited to submit papers for consideration to be presented at the conference and to discuss the latest trends and emerging and innovative technologies for grid modernization.
