The Power in Unity 2014 multi-stream conference from a whole-system philosophy, brought together all the key information on smart grid, smart metering, energy storage and power quality.
The ‘whole system’ approach to adapting the UK’s power grid for decarbonisation, with a ‘systems architect’ role at the helm, recommended by the IET Power Vision Joint Network (PNJV) report “Electricity Networks: Handling a Shock to the System” has been explored further.
A selection of leading professionals from the Power Network Joint Vision Expert Group discussed the challenges being faced in integrating low carbon generation to the grid while decarbonising heat and transport and the role of a system architect for the UK electricity system (Electricity Networks: handling a shock to the system). They put forward their perspectives through plenary sessions, parallel conference sessions and panels.
Delegates found out about how this work aims to assist the government in lowering carbon emissions, making more efficient use of the UK’s resources, and identifying new opportunities for jobs and exports.
