Undergrounding of low and medium voltage electric power distribution networks is possible today thanks to technology developed which have advantages in terms of environment, energy efficiency and reliability. Nevertheless, the undergrounding development presents a cost that must be compatible with the requirements of the price of electricity delivered to consumers.
A first seminar Cabos'09 was held on this theme in 2009 in Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil. Given the success of this first meeting, the organizers decided to hold a second seminar: Cabos'11, from November 8th to 10th 2011.
The objective of Cabos'11 will take stock of the state of the art, new achievements and future prospects of undergrounding distribution networks.
