Setting the Scene

The energy industry moves quickly and can often be complex, with new and innovative technologies becoming available at a dizzying pace, so it can often be difficult to keep up and know which technologies are worth investing in.

Powerstar is hosting a free to attend energy seminar in London on 13 March 2019 which aims to provide insight into the energy industry, including projections for the future, as well as the key applications of smart energy technologies, which provide steadfast solutions to a multitude of energy-related difficulties of all scales and severity.

Powerstar’s annual London seminars have grown in popularity considerably over the past couple of years, so ensure you reserve your place early, and avoid disappointment, by completing the short form at the top of the page.

The Subject Matter

In this free energy seminar, Powerstar invites you to join its industry experts in London to take stock of recent movements within the energy industry, the energy problems commonly faced by UK businesses today, and the technologies and solutions available to combat them.

During the seminar, guests will be informed of the current restrictions and limitations on the UK electricity supply network and the ever-increasing demand it faces as we approach Industry 4.0 and continue to invest more heavily into the Internet of Things (IoT). In addition to the current and future energy landscapes, both as a solution to the rapidly growing demand and to maximise investment into renewable generators and the increasing pressures to reduce carbon emissions at both an international and corporate level, businesses are burdened with finding ways to significantly reduce carbon emissions and use energy more effectively to assist the efforts to decarbonise.

Powerstar’s industry experts will also provide guests with insight into complementary smart energy technologies that can be combined to provide a comprehensive business-wide energy strategy, and how continual improvements can be identified through the latest remote monitoring and management solutions.
