ENA supports Hannover Messe conference

Energy Networks Association (ENA) is a supporter of the Hannover Messe conference work to showcase energy networks innovation and the importance of smart grids to our energy future.

Jamie McWilliam, ENA’s Head of Futures, said:

“Innovation on the networks is a critical part of delivering a long term strategy for a secure and sustainable supply to homes and businesses that is also affordable. As we move to connect new forms of renewable generation and low carbon technologies such as electric vehicles and heat pumps the development of a smart grid will be essential.

“I’m looking forward to hearing from exhibitors and speakers at the Hannover Messe about the work taking place to engineer more flexible and responsive energy networks that utilise data and provide solutions for a more efficient energy future.”

In the UK, the Low Carbon Networks (LCN) Fund has enabled electricity distribution networks to inject innovation into the grid and the solutions are becoming part of the business as usual through the Network Innovation Allowance.

Every year ENA organises the UK’s innovation showcase, the LCN Fund Conference and will be continuing this in 20-22 October 2014 with the first Low Carbon and Networks Innovation Conference which incorporates the work of recent years on the electricity distribution network with that of the transmission and gas distribution networks too.

Conferences that showcase this exciting work are offering industry and policy makers a glimpse of the future of our integrated and smarter energy future that delivers more for consumers.
