Conference Outline from Gavin Jones, Chair 2017

“2017 feels like a year in which major change in smart energy in the UK seem close.

“Yet what that change is, is unclear.

“We’ll see:

  • the smart meter rollout starting, bringing smart technology into homes across the country;
  • possible booms in the development of storage, reducing costs of renewables technology;
  • the first subsidy-free bid for provision of offshore wind in Germany;
  • and National Grid and Google working on the use of artificial intelligence in energy.

“On the other hand we have the following combination of uncertainties:

  • our future access to international energy;
  • the impact of political attempts to fix the failures of our energy market;
  • the growing impact on communities and business of living the most expensive energy in the developed world;
  • and future changes in how our electricity system will be managed.

“The conference centres on perfect area for fascinating conversations!”

Dr Justin Hayward, Director of C4IR added: “Just 5 weeks to go to this event and we are very excited! We have a VC & ARM-led innovation pitching session on 20th business conference and a high quality delve into basics, technologies, markets and innovation on 19th in the briefing day.”
