Utility Week Live 2017 officially kick-started a focus on the transformation of utilities, with plenty of networking, live demonstrations, fantastic speakers and innovation competitions.

Day 1

Day 1 saw the launch of the Isle Utilities Big Water Pitch competition, plus a discussion on ‘Penalties, Permits and Incentives’ in streetworks. Elsewhere, industry leaders from the likes of UK Power Networks and National Grid talked about the role of transformation and flexibility in the face of uncertainty, while the Keynote Theatre hosted experts deliberating smart meters and ‘Megatrends’.

Day 2

Day 2 was equally as inspiring, with the Energy Innovation Centre’s second Big Energy Pitch competition and an introduction on innovations in advanced water treatment. Sector leaders advised on meeting the challenges of a changing sector plus what Brexit will mean for utilities. 

Hear from our transformation leaders in exclusive interviews below, and relive the first day in our day 1 highlights video.
