This unique Eighth Smart Grids Cleanpower Conference 2017 (SGCP) event series and investor and business network provides a platform for understanding and investing in, partnering and innovating in grids and energy sector within “industry 4.0”. It is an ambitious platform to understand increased productivity and the trillion dollar question of investment in the relevant opportunities. Leading figures have said that the category will see high, long-run growth by enabling large productivity gains and new models. But when? And how? Who will benefit/lose out? At what ROI and how do we calculate it? What are the risks? What technical issues of deployment exist and how severe are they? What new business models will be used? Assessing winners and losers in a nonlinear change scenario is fraught; we will present a method and enable intelligent discussion.

Some of the most insightful leaders will provide executive briefing sessions and conference presentations.

Welcome from Director

We warmly invite you to join us in Cambridge, UK to update, discuss, understand, network, dine, meet, build relationships and invest or fund your business. Welcome to the the 8th Smart Grids Cleanpower Conference 2017

I am thrilled to announce that Smart Grids & Cleanpower is now part of C4IR’s network of exchange and global event series which will offer valuable support and market access to those interested in understanding and investing in 4IR technologies and business models. With complexity and (cyber and investment) risk high, new business models unfamiliar, ROI and market timing unclear, tech implementation challenging, yet investment urgency very high, the C4IR investment network and event series is a much needed, bold, global initiative to connect that I hope will resonate with the world’s corporate and financial investors, engineers and innovators. There is also a new membership network; I encourage you to join.

- Dr Justin Hayward, Investment Research Director, Cambridge Investment Research & Co-Founder, CIR
