Project LEO and TRANSITION featured in SSEN’s booth at the Energy Innovation Summit at Glasgow’s SEC on September 28th and 29th. Previously known as the Energy Networks Innovation Conference (ENIC), this event was hosted by a collaboration of BEIS, Innovate UK, Ofgem and Regen and this year, it was opened to the wider energy industry and attracted new national and international delegates.
Energy flexibility and local energy systems were popular topics of discussion throughout the 2-day conference and LEO and TRANSITION were showcased as a centerpiece of SSEN’s future innovation projects. The team highlighted the progress made in the past year and shared some of the learning from running Trial Periods 1 and 2 as part of the Local Energy System marketplace.
In addition, Mel Bryce our Program Director was invited to speak on a panel discussion around the increasing role that local energy has within the wider energy system, participating with colleagues from Innovate UK, West Midland Combined Authority, Welsh Government, Community Energy England and SGN.
