Flexible Networks: Storage & DSR Conference
As energy networks prepare to meet the demands of a flexible power system, Network, the UK's only dedicated media brand for engineers in gas, power and heat networks, is launching Flexible Networks: Storage & DSR - a unique conference exploring today's solutions to tomorrow's challenges.
9th May 2017 by Networks
The conference will explore the drivers for flexibility and set the strategic context, before diving into the detail of operational and technical solutions around storage and DSR, including the latest findings from innovation-funded studies. It will ask how customers and other stakeholders can be engaged in the transition, and will look at the role of flexibility beyond the network, at grid-level.
