EPCC Workshops

The International Workshops on Electric Power Control Centers were founded and organized by Tom Dy-Liacco in 1991. EPCC Workshops provide a unique platform for information exchange among the industry professionals involved in technical, business, regulatory and financial aspects of system reliability and electricity markets. Workshop discussions focus on the latest developments in control center technologies, highlighting their impact on the most urgent challenges of power system operations and system planning.
