The Joint Radio Company’s Autumn Seminar – the UK’s Smart Grid Vision
Last week we had the pleasure of being the Premier Sponsors of the Joint Radio Company’s Autumn Seminar which was held at the Imperial War Museum in London.
This was the first time we have been part of the proceedings at this event and one that we’ll be sure to do again.
The subject for this year’s seminar was the UK’s Smart Grid Vision, how smart grids will be able to transform our energy system and in doing so, minimise consumer bills, create jobs and fuel growth. A truly fascinating subject and something we’re looking forward to being a part of.
The event was organised by the Joint Radio Company, an industry-owned joint venture company of National Grid plc and the Energy Networks Association Ltd, representing UK gas and electricity transmission and distribution companies.
The membership of the JRC consists of major companies from the UK gas, electricity, public transport and humanitarian sectors. The JRC works on behalf of its membership to secure and manage the radio spectrum they require, supporting the delivery of mission-critical services. Its services include:
- Wind farm coordination
- Liaison with government agencies
- Advice and consultancy
- Lobbying government agencies and influencing industry
- Monitoring technological advancements
The day included some truly interesting presentations, as well as opportunities to network with a number of industry representatives.
The event was held at the spectacular Imperial War Museum in the heart of London, a stone’s throw from London Waterloo Station. Attendees were also given an introduction to the IWM from a senior tour guide, as well as being allowed access to the museum and some of its fantastic displays.
This was an excellent event, an insight into how the UK energy industry is shaping up and the technological advancements we can expect to see in the future.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to visit us to the Joint Radio Company for organising such a fantastic event.
