Registration is no longer possible

Utilities leaders in the UK are invited to join this virtual roundtable on ‘Building a nation of personal power plants’.

An expert moderator will guide the knowledge-sharing event, stimulating discussion between participants in a closed, confidential environment. Attendance is by invitation only and complimentary. Registration is limited to a select number of guests per event.

Building a nation of personal power plants

The UK will not reach net-zero emissions by 2050 solely by building scale across renewable generation. The energy system will also have to become increasingly flexible, relying on consumers and businesses to willingly shift their energy consumption away from peak times and feed power back into the grid. However, the frameworks for encouraging flexibility and allowing mass engagement with the energy system remain in their infancy.

There is a need to roll out time-of-use tariffs and smart devices, encourage vehicle-to-grid technology, and ensure electric vehicle charging infrastructure keeps pace with demand. The delivery of these capabilities requires a shift in focus from a provider mindset to a consumer mindset to encourage full participation. With public debate currently consumed by concerns around affordability, it is nevertheless essential that progress continues to be made on building these millions of personal power plants across the UK.

  • What challenges do organisations face in aligning flexibility with affordability, including sharing data securely, to maximise the potential of mass consumer interaction?
  • How can organisations build a marketplace for key digital products and services to unlock the potential of digital energy ecosystems through API-enabled products?
  • What market signals are needed to understand where to invest in demand-side response?

Join leaders interested in discussing digital marketplace strategies and actions that can be taken by utilities and areas where pressure on government and the regulator must be applied.

Job titles may include CIO, CTO, Chief Data Officer, Chief Technology Officer, COO, Head of Product, Head of Digital, Head of Infrastructure, Head of Integration, Head of Architecture, Head of API, Head of Platforms, Head of Data, Head of Strategy, Head of Digital/Transformation, and other decision-makers.
