The Future of the Supply/Demand Interface in Electricity Distribution

On 12th November 2014, Bird & Bird in collaboration with SmartGrid GB will be hosting an all-day conference at the British Library which aims to explore how the generation and supply side of the energy industry can utilise technologies and data streams to maximise efficiency in operation. The projected transformation of energy markets and the management of systems using machine to machine control is a revolutionary change that industry will face in the near future. The role of distributed generation, storage and new forms of generation will require solutions to allow the most efficient use of assets.

This event is aimed at industry to stimulate discussion around these issues with some of the key industry players, including generation companies, National Grid and DNOs.  The discussion will provide energy industry participants with the opportunity to express and hear views around areas of concern and potential solutions.

Bird & Bird has expertise in these issues and the development of a smart grid more generally, having been commended at the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards for its work advising the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) on the national roll out of smart gas and electricity meters.
