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 gradually risen too, resulting in significant electricity bills, increased CO2 emissions and heightened energy consumption. 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 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. The main focus of the seminar will discuss the concept of a decentralised energy network as a solution to this rapidly growing demand and increase energy efficiency and resilience for end users.

The implementation of intelligent solutions will provide reliable energy at a much cheaper cost to the end user, whilst simultaneously helping to balance demand on the network, and, when combined with voltage regulation, local generation and underpinned with uninterruptible power supply (UPS), reduce transmission losses and increases the security of the supply.

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 a decentralised energy network can help
  • What is a decentralised energy network and how does it work?
  • The role of energy storage technology in storing decentralised energy
  • The increasing requirement for energy resilience
  • How businesses can increase reliability, supply resilience and cost savings
  • How an integrated storage solution can be delivered capex and opex free
