Event description

Description

Purpose

HubNet has run a symposium to showcase UK research in Smart Grids every year for the last seven years. We have featured work on a wide range of topics including decentralised control, communications technology, whole-system modelling, self-organising and self-healing systems, and the analysis of behaviours of consumers in such environments. This year we will run an event that not only covers Smart Grids but also deals with infrastructure showcasing research on high voltage plant, power electronics, HVDC and multi-vector systems. We also explore the market mechanisms necessary to drive the changes envisaged. Alongside presentations from leading experts there are debates and discussions and poster sessions; all of this aimed at providing varied opportunities for researchers, research users and other stakeholders to network and share ideas. Note that, as a new approach, some presentations run in parallel allowing both a wider programme and attendees to choose those of most interest to them.

We are delighted to have keynote addresses from John McElroy, Advisory Board member of UKERC (and formerly Director of Policy & Public Affairs, RWE npower) and Nigel Turvey, Design and Development Manager, Western Power Distribution.

Who would benefit from attending

The event is for anyone interested in the future of energy networks, including network planners and operators, policy makers including regulators and government, energy suppliers, generators, investors, those involved in innovatory technology or business models, equipment manufacturers and information technology providers.

The event is designed to cover a broad range of topics that can help inform researchers and others about their own interests plus many other related topics and also serve as a broad overview of the UK research capability for those looking for the innovations that will mature in the near future and set the direction of the future energy network.
