In recent years, the UK has experienced an accelerated rate of technological advancement that has seen businesses increase their energy consumption through the use of more automated processes, from computers to industrial machines and even the rise of the electrified (EV) fleet.

Whilst this has been taking place, energy prices have risen too, with businesses seeing new rates influence the cost of electricity upwards of a staggering 30%, potentially rising to as much as 42%, significantly affecting companies bottom line.

At the same time, awareness surrounding the environmental impact of an increased use of energy has led to a headache for energy managers, engineers, and facility managers alike who have mounting pressure to reduce all three components and help protect a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR).

This free, short seminar, taking place at the impressive Tees Barrage in Stockton-on-Tees, will explore the future energy mix in the UK, including the concept of the decentralised network which utilises the simultaneous uptake of several elements such as distributed generation, distributed storage, energy efficiency and demand response to tackle the energy trilemma (consumption, CO2 and costs) and allow facilities to move their energy efficiency efforts to the next level.

Seminar Overview:

During the seminar, delegates will be informed of the current restrictions and limitations on the UK electricity supply network and the ever-increasing demand it faces, including the UK’s increased investment into renewable energy sources in the face of challenging Government zero-carbon initiatives.

The implementation of intelligent energy management solutions which integrate technologies to provide a fit for purpose solution such as energy storage, voltage regulation, and smart transformers, will provide significant energy savings as well as a plethora of other benefits, including the ability to balance demand on the network, reduce transmission losses and increase the security of the supply through Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) capabilities.

A bespoke, combined energy management solutions, they will also help sites to maximise existing on-site technology and renewable generation, such as CHP, wind generation, or solar PV, and the energy consumption benefits available from voltage regulation and super low loss smart transformers will provide measurable savings to CO2 emissions, helping companies move forward as part of the UK’s low-carbon future.

Why You Can’t Miss It

During the seminar the following topics will be addressed and discussed:

  • An energy manager’s guide to improving energy efficiency by reducing consumption, costs and CO2, in line with mounting pressures
  • The limitations of the current electricity network and how energy storage technology can help
  • What is a decentralised energy network and how does it work?
  • The role of energy storage technology in maximising renewable generation
  • The increasing requirement for energy resilience
