APEX Summit 2018 - Smarter Solutions

17 August 2018
8:30 am - 6:00 pm
Auckland University of Technology (AUT)
Room to be confirmed

The next Annual Power Engineering Exchange [APEX] Summit 2018 is being held at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) in Auckland on Friday the 17th of August 2018.

It will gather graduate engineers of any discipline (electrical, mechanical, civil, etc.) involved in power supply projects, as well as students interested in a career in the industry. Past attendees valued their APEX experience for the knowledge gained, the opportunity to network and the chance to brush up their presentation skills.

The theme - Smarter Solutions

Engineering is all about doing things smarter. How can we deliver electricity more reliably, at a lower cost, with improved safety outcomes and reduced environmental impact? How can we engineer solutions to achieve these objectives?

Smarter solutions can be found not just in design, but also in how we construct, maintain, refurbish and decommission our assets. As new technologies become available, these can be applied to further optimise our performance. Or sometimes it is just a case of seeing an old problem in a new light and creating an elegant solution. New team work practices can also significantly affect the outcome of innovative projects.

At this year’s APEX Summit, we look forward to listening to presenters able to show how they apply smarter solutions in their engineering work.

Call for presentation abstracts and panel discussion proposals

We are now seeking presentation abstracts from graduate engineers with up to five years experience in the electricity supply industry. Any engineering disciplines can be covered, the more diverse the better! We only ask you to think about what your presentation could bring to the Summit's theme 'Smarter Solutions'. Students involved in projects with industry companies are also welcome to submit an abstract.

We are also interested in hearing from young engineers who would like to propose and facilitate a panel discussion on a topic relevant to the event's theme.

Abstract submissions should be made by email to EEA at by no later than Friday 29 June 2018. Please refer to our Summit's flyer to see all instructions, key dates and other event information.
