Bristol & Bath Science Park plays host to Smart Grid Symposium
Guest speakers at Low Carbon South West's Smart Grid event.
A fifty-strong delegation gathered at Bristol & Bath Science Park on 23rd July for Low Carbon South West’s (LCSW) latest event on ‘smart grids’ and the future of energy use.
The half day symposium brought together experts from both the professional and public sector who are working together to develop intelligent networks that will form the infrastructure behind tomorrow’s towns and cities.
The event identified opportunities for developing ‘smart’ networks in the South West as we move away from solely centralised energy generation towards microgeneration and local energy networks. It covered subjects ranging from complex emerging energy management technologies to building design and behaviour change.
With a large number of businesses developing environmental technologies and services and several prestigious universities pushing forward research, the symposium highlighted the breadth of opportunities in this emerging field and demonstrated that the South West is well-placed to lead the way in the UK in the ‘smart grids’ sector.
