Experts from across the energy industry will tomorrow (Wednesday 13 November) be showcasing the latest progress towards delivering a smart grid that ensures a secure, sustainable and affordable energy future for UK customers.
The annual Low Carbon Networks Fund Conference is being organised, in Brighton, by Energy Networks Association on behalf of Ofgem and the network operators alongside this year’s co-hosts UK Power Networks.
Energy Networks Association (ENA) is the voice of the networks, representing the ‘wires and pipes’ transmission and distribution network operators for gas and electricity in the UK and Ireland.
More than 650 delegates from across the networks, suppliers, consumer groups, SMEs and ICT companies will be sharing the innovation and developments that will deliver Government policy and enable the low carbon economy to be affordable.
Hannah Nixon, Senior Partner at Ofgem who will be speaking at the conference, said: “Innovation is essential if consumers are to get the energy network services they deserve at a fair price. Ofgem’s LCNF is designed to drive that innovation and ensure what is innovation today is business as usual tomorrow. This conference is an important part of enabling stakeholders to share latest thinking and practice in helping to deliver a low carbon future that is affordable for consumers.”
The Conference will be opened by Shadow Energy Minister Tom Greatrex MP and will hear from Geoffrey Spence, Chief Executive of Infrastructure UK, senior industry representatives and include an address from Energy Minister Rt Hon Michael Fallon MP.
