The HubNet Smart Grids Symposium is an annual event intended to showcase outcomes from the UK Smart Grids research community. This encompasses power system operation and management, information and communications technology and wider disciplines that have made advances in this field. The objective is to bring these advances to a broad audience of stakeholders.
The event is organised by HubNet – the EPSRC SuperGen Hub for energy networks – and draws on the work of various SuperGen research consortia as well as other major activities in the area.
The 2015 symposium is dedicated to the importance of infrastructure for the successful development of Smart Grids and the programme is supported by Top and Tail Transformation, an EPSRC Grand Challenge, which is nearing completion of its research activities, and has concentrated on both the “top” of energy networks (including, for example, transmission and HVDC) and the “tail” (distribution networks and user demand).
