Emergency power, lithium batteries and earthing conference

May 3rd, 2016, Published in Articles: Energize


Registrations are now open for the Emergency Power Supplies, Lithium Batteries and Earthing Conference to be held at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand on 27 and 28 July 2016.  The conference will deal with the adequacy of emergency power supplies; the quality of power supplied, and discuss how these problems can be addressed for plant, business and home. Earthing, lightning and surge protection will be explored and the recent global interest in lithium batteries as a form of energy storage – with the latest trend moving away from traditional lead acid batteries in favour of lightweight lithium batteries.
