Shortly after every Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our contacts in government, and stakeholders more widely.
A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
Each publication includes:
- All speeches from the day, with accompanying slides and speaker biographies
(subject to approval by speaker);
- Transcripts of question and comment sessions;
- Supplementary articles from speakers and delegates; and
- Event information such as the delegate list and final agenda
The UK's smart grid strategy and latest thinking on the prospects for a European Supergrid
PUBLISHED June 2012
This publication is CPD certified
As the Government continued to develop its policy on smart grids, and following the publication of the Smart Grid Forum's How to deliver smarter grids in GB, this seminar examined the opportunities and challenges associated with the future of the UK's electricity network, whilst focusing on the next steps in the development and implementation of a smart grid strategy.
Delegates assessed the financial, practical and technical requirements for a smart grid - considering in part the impact of the Electricity Market Reform White Paper - as the Government moved to ensure that UK electricity networks can meet the long-term challenges of tackling climate change and securing clean and affordable energy.
Topics for discussion also included the latest thinking on the prospects for a European Supergrid and the implications and further opportunities this may present for UK electricity.
