Future Control of the Grid

11 January 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


There are key changes for the electricity sector in the way electricity is generated and consumed.
To meet carbon reduction targets, the UK continues to introduce significant volumes of low-carbon generation technologies, such as photovoltaic (PV) and wind-driven turbines, to replace conventional generation that relies on burning coal and gas. Studies predict that the way electricity is used and managed will also see significant changes. Heat pumps and electric vehicles will create new demand for electricity.
These, combined with measures to manage demand, all contribute to a new electricity system landscape in the future that is very different to that we have been used to.

This talk will focus on the challenges to the stability and control of these many varying changes to the National Grid.
