 Herbert Smith Freehills, London

Benefits of attending include:

  • Hear the latest insight from DNOs on the work they are doing
  • Understand the changing interface between the transmission and distribution networks and the proposals for DNOs to become DSOs
  • Review how energy storage is developing – including insight from current projects incorporating energy storage and discussing what these projects mean for the network
  • Explore what options are available to help you achieve a faster and cheaper connection to enable earlier generation – from queue management and active network management through to incorporating the latest technologies into your project
  • Find out more about the planning requirements to deliver new energy projects and supporting infrastructure

Further Information: The Connecting Projects to the Grid conference will return in 2017 and will once again provide practical guidance on how to gain a grid connection for your project. Providing the latest regulatory updates and reviewing the transition from DNOs to DSOs and what this means for the sector, the event offers a complete update on the issues affecting the grid and explores how to secure a faster, cheaper connection for your project.

Attendees will receive the latest insight on how to create a more flexible energy network, and explore the role of new technologies in balancing the supply and demand of energy, including the use of energy storageactive network management, and the latest innovative solutions from DNOs.

Taking place over 1 and a half separately bookable days, day 1 will focus on the creation of a more flexible energy system and how to gain a connection, with day 2 examining the planning and delivery of new energy and electrical infrastructure.

Day 2 will take the format of an optional morning workshop, which will explore how to plan for new energy projects and grid infrastructure. Explore some of the main elements of the planning processes that you must complete when developing new projects, including stakeholder engagement
