Event description

Description

It’s the fine balance between defining personal data, and the capacity to use data to build hyper efficient energy economies. In particular, domestic demand side response. The debate will hear from speakers linked to the Pete Project, who have begun to navigate this new path. The subject will be introduced by the evening chair Sam Botterill (EI Committee Member).

The Pete Project are one of the first Innovate UK funded projects that have had to contend with this new paradigm. The project has delivered a GDPR compliant process, just as the general public develop a new level of scepticism on data. The "Clash of Digitalisation" is the now the defining force in the holistic development of global energy.

The speakers will include:

Sam Botteril MSc – Chair

Sam believes he has recently ‘coined’ the phrase the “The Clash of Digitalisation.” Borrowing from Samuel P. Huntington, the clash has been drawn from the new data paradigm and how to manage it. The idea, wider than just the energy industry, stems from work carried out in the last three years starting with KiWi Power, and then learning about Blockchain with Electron (2017), before being asked by Capita to help with the London Mayor’s bid for a domestic demand side response project (2018). Following this work, the Pete Project asked Sam to identify domestic assets for the Pete Project in the London Area.

Sam is a member of the Energy Institute, and serves on the London Branch Committee; he is formerly a Director of the Pipeline Industries Guild.
