Electricity networks have been widely equipped with alternating current technology at 50 or 60 Hz for over century. However, DC technology provides clear technical advantages in a world that will be dominated by energy storage systems, photovoltaic modules, digital equipment and energy efficient HVAC systems. Introducing DC technology will increase conversion efficiency and power transfer capability while at the same time reducing costs. 

We therefore invite you to participate in the DC Symposium on Tuesday December 13th, in Thor Central at Thor Park in Genk, where the results of two DC projects: the ICON BIDC and the ICON MultiDC will be discussed.
