As Britain seeks to decarbonise energy, provide security of supply  whilst driving down bills, new and innovative solutions and approaches are required. In this time of unprecedented change, this series of seminars will explore new technology, commercial and operating arrangements and changes to the regulatory system. The seminars will examine the implications, opportunities and challenges presented by storage, decarbonisation of heat, the future of the gas network and flexible integrated smart infrastructure and how these will contribute to the transformation of networks.
