5.45pm - Octopus Energy
A space for the brightest and most progressive players in energy and tech to envision, co-design and develop the future energy system.
We’re delighted to invite you to the third session of en_tech_talks.
We’re bringing together a diverse community with a unifying principle: to rapidly accelerate the energy transition. If you’re an energy tech leader, distribution network operator, academic, researcher, policymaker, city/borough/place-based representative – or simply involved and/or interested in the decarbonisation of energy systems – we’d love you to join us! Please note that we have a limited number of tickets available for this event.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
How can we intelligently manage energy demand and reduce stress on the electricity system? Energy flexibility holds the key. For the next edition of en_tech_talks, we’ll be discussing how tech can help us achieve flexibility at scale and what the benefits look like for households, businesses and communities.
Expect the usual set-up: cutting-edge keynotes from subject matter experts, followed by some lively networking, fuelled by carbon neutral beer and pizza.
WHAT’S THE SCHEDULE?
5.45pm – Arrival & welcome
6.15pm – Introduction
Head of Strategy
6.20pm - Keynote 01
Senior Manager, Moixa
Natasha will be discussing the importance of residential flexibility, the approach taken at Moixa, the UK's leading smart battery company, and introduce their software GridShare: a cutting-edge cloud-based platform that applies AI and machine learning to optimise power distribution through the grid and help customers maximise the value of energy.
6.40pm - Keynote 02
Data Management Lead, Project LEO
Masaō will be sharing insights around Project LEO: one of the UK’s most ambitious, wide-ranging and innovative energy trials. He’ll be arguing that a decentralised or local energy solution focused on building energy flexibility at the grid edge (closest to homes and businesses) will be the most desirable approach to accelerating our transition to a zero-carbon energy system.
7.00pm - Keynote 03
To close the session, Iain will be discussing the role of smart EV charging in delivering a flexible energy system. With demand for EVs soaring, the opportunity to establish residential flexibility as a reliable energy and grid management resource continues to grow. He’ll particularly focus on Ohme’s data-driven approach to customer segmentation in Crowdflex trials to date, showcasing how understanding and classifying consumer behavioural patterns is a key application of tech in accelerating net zero. Crowdflex is a "first of its kind" trial looking at domestic flexibility which determined huge potential, especially from EVs.
