Change is the very essence of the business leader’s job. It is a very complex process of Learning and Restructuring. Transforming the Emotional, the Intellectual and the Behavioral state of the Group. Uncertainty is the very engine of transformation in a business, a continuous source of new opportunities.

Keynote 1: The Interaction of Renewables and Demand Response in a Smart Grid.

Historically the electric power system has been designed and operated to provide a reliable supply of electricity at a lowest possible cost. This paradigm is now shifting due to the rising cost of fossil fuel and nuclear power stations, and the concern about global warming and climate change. As a result environmental sustainability and energy security are now becoming important considerations.

Keynote 2: Sustainable High Quality e-Learning Model.

E-learning in the modern world has become interactive, mobile, project based and available 24/7. Classes can be; full e-learning, blended e-learning and purely classroom classes. All of these are necessary to modern Universities. This talk will present a model of e-learning administration plan adopted by the University of Bahrain that caused a significant rise in the utilization rate of this new medium.

Special Talk: Smart Grid Technologies

For a hundred years, there has been no change in the basic structure of the electrical power grid. Experiences have shown that the hierarchical, centrally-controlled grid of the twentieth century is ill-suited to the needs of the twenty-first. To address the challenges of the existing power grid, the new concept of smart grid has emerged.
