Available to watch on-demand: edie’s smart grids masterclass focused on energy storage and demand-response

The masterclass is available to watch on demand

With distributed energy assets fast becoming a mainstream part of the UK power network, this live online masterclass equips businesses with the insights and inspiration they need to decentralise, decarbonise and democratise their energy through smart grid technologies and systems.


Brought to you as part of edie’s “Smart Grids Masters” series of content in association with E.ON, the 45-minute session breaks down how energy and sustainability managers can generate their own low-carbon power, store it onsite, and/or sell it back to the grid.

Masterclass chair: 

Matt Mace, 
Content Editor, edie
