EDF, ESB, E-ON, OFGEM, and 200 Others
Hosted by leading utility EDF Networks, Smart Grid Update’s utility led tech event, Smart Grid Technology Conference (26 & 27 October, Regents Park Marriott) in London, UK has invited all the top DNOs and energy retailers to discuss winning strategies to increase penetration of smart grid technologies on the grid.
Over the past 18 months, the smart grid industry has experienced a significant growth in interest and investment with the new administration pumping billions to upgrade existing networks with intelligent technologies, solutions and services.
However, new tech entrants and cross-industry giants are still trying to find the right mix of solutions to match the budgets and tech requirement of slow moving electric utilities. This annual event targeted at the technology industry is uniquely positioned to bridge this disconnect and provide the vendor community with tools necessary to develop the value added, cost-effective and custom made solutions.
Following a fresh new keynote on what EDF networks looks for from its partners and suppliers for their upcoming Smart Grid City London project, the event has some of the top names sharing best practice with case studies, pilot results, and interactive session including E-ON, ESB Networks, Scottish & Southern Energy, O2, EPRI, Enernex, IEC, OFGEM amongst others
The conference will unite electric utilities, regulatory bodies, service providers, tech giants, wireless carriers, communication network providers, meter manufacturers, software developers, system integrators, consultants, and many others. The programme covers a complete market overview, communication networks, home automation, standardisation, electric vehicles, growth opportunities in Europe, scaling up technologies and much more.
