WEL Takes Centre Stage at EEA Conference

WEL Networks’ innovative transformation to a Distribution System Operator (DSO) model has been recognised by the industry at the 2022 Electricity Engineers’ Association National Conference in Hamilton.

The DSO team received a People’s Choice Best Paper Award for their presentation, sharing a strong framework around WEL’s DSO Strategy and future innovation.

DSO Engineering Manager Lingsong Zheng says the presentation provided a balance between strategy and detailed information with practical examples relating to the implementation of our DSO journey.

“Future energy transformation requires careful planning and industry-wide collaboration. We are positioning ourselves as industry leaders and while we’re wanting to continue to lead, we also want to work with the wider industry to achieve better outcomes for New Zealand,” he says.
