Sponsored by Lord Whitty this event will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the heating evolution – The compulsory condensing boiler.
2013 was an important milestone in the history of the UK gas industry – not only did the industry celebrate 200 years since the first practical use of gas for lighting the streets of Westminster but it also repositioned itself as a key industry in the transition to a low carbon energy future and beyond. In a regulatory context, the price control for gas distribution was one of the first settlements to be landed under the new Ofgem-led RIIO framework, and Government saw the positive virtues in supporting future shale gas developments as international security of supply events continued to rumble. As last year’s Gas 2013 event emphasised, natural gas was indeed at the very heart of helping solve the ‘energy trilemma’. So one year on, what does the industry now need to do to sustain this positive momentum and to capitalise on the commercial, regulatory and technical leadership inherent in the sector and where should it be doing better?
Details to follow shortly.
Please join us for the 11th running of this popular industry seminar, an event which is always guaranteed to bring together the important players from the equipment supply chain, government, regulators and representative bodies. With mass roll-out fast approaching, hear from those involved at the sharp end of system installation and testing and meter manufacturers. Understand how they are managing risk throughout the transition phase, learn about the latest technical developments, hear how they are working towards effective deployment and get anupdate on the crucial engagement of the British public. The programme will be supported by a topical supply chain exhibition and excellent networking opportunities.
There is little doubt that ‘customers’ and ‘data’ have headlined in the recent regulatory settlements for energy transmission, and gas distribution, and in the forward asset management plans now being scrutinised for electricity distribution (RIIO-ED1) and water and waste water (PR14). It is clear also that the utilities are being challenged to be more innovative in the way data is translated into knowledge on behalf of customers and other stakeholders. Building on its ‘data’ theme of 2009, this year’s Utility Asset Management conference examines how data and data analytics are being deployed to both develop and deliver asset management plans. With the field of data analytics moving from analytic, through predictive to prescriptive solution capability, and with its roots in consumer facing markets, we examine how asset-intensive utilities are now unlocking value from smarter planning, investment, maintenance and operating activities.
ICOM Annual Luncheon is one of the premier events in the commercial and industrial heating calendar. Attended by many of the industry’s leading companies and key decision makers, it is a great venue to network with industry colleagues.
EUA and IGEM are pleased to announce the Gas Industry Awards Lunch 2014. Hosted at the Hilton, Park Lane, London, this annual event brings together over 600 gas professionals and is the largest and most prestigious event in the gas industry calendar. Rt Hon Caroline Flint MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, will give the keynote address.
EUA is pleased to announce its one day seminar ‘Data and Communications for Smart Metering 2014’. The commercial landscape for smart metering has changed greatly in the last twelve months with the appointment of key governance groups and service providers, but there is much to do before enduring roll-out commences in 2015. As well as providing the latest update on design and build progress, this event looks ahead to the important testing and assurance phase of implementation, and asks the question ‘how ready are users’?
