Flexible Networks: Storage & DSR Conference

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.

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.
