The Customer-Led Network Revolution (CLNR), the UK’s largest smart grid project, is set to share early findings from trials involving over 12,000 energy customers at its free knowledge-sharing event on Tuesday 1st October at One Great George Street, Westminster, London.
The one-day event will present the latest findings from the various CLNR customer trials. Key members from the project team will draw some interim conclusions and consider the likely impact on the energy industry, future policy and consumers.
Learning from the Low Carbon Network funded CLNR project will help the electricity industry prepare for the mass uptake of low carbon technologies like solar panels, heat pumps and electric vehicles and give consumers greater flexibility in how they use and generate electricity.
Presentations from project partners Northern Powergrid, British Gas, EA Technology and Durham and Newcastle Universities will cover hot topics like demand side response and emerging consumer trends and attitudes towards energy consumption.
Speakers include the CLNR project’s academic lead Professor Phil Taylor, Head of Sustainability at Newcastle University, who will discuss the importance of a socio-technical approach to smart grids, to meet the energy demands of the future.
