ENERGY Smart Classes focus on the energy challenges faced by UK cities and regions (security of supply, ageing infrastructure, fuel poverty etc) and show key buyer side stakeholders how deploying the latest digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices can help utilities and distributors to forecast and manage loads better, reduce the need for costly infrastructure expansion, and improve service quality and customer satisfaction. Delegates include commissioning, procurement, trialling and partnering leads, senior influencers and strategic decision makers from UK electricity and gas utilities, independent energy companies, energy brokers and aggregators, local and combined authorities with energy provider partners, DNOs/DSOs/TSOs, insurers, large energy consumers, housing associations, energy authorities, central government departments and regulators. Core themes range from smart grids and metering, automated demand response, intelligent energy storage and smart home automation to energy disaggregation and machine learning, energy modelling and forecasting, predictive customer profiling and segmentation, energy efficiency in transport (EV infrastructure, smart street lighting etc), and IoT potentials (e.g. aiding widespread adoption of renewable energy sources, utility monitoring, electric cars communicating with people and the grid).
Delegates will hear from industry movers, shapers and disruptors during initial rapid-fire thought leadership presentations, before moving on to in-depth consultations with experts and peers during the roundtable discussions. In addition, this Smart Class will feature up to 3 keynote presentations giving real world insight into collaborative initiatives, digital journeys and adoptions of emerging, transformative technologies. This half day interactive event is free to attend for bona fide delegates satisfying our registration criteria.
