edie’s next online masterclass to focus on smart grids for business

The online 45-minute masterclass forms part of a new masters series sponsored by E.ON, and takes place at 1pm (BST) on Thursday 25 June.


With distributed energy assets fast becoming a mainstream part of the UK power network, this live online masterclass will equip 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 will break down how energy and sustainability managers can generate their own low-carbon power, store it onsite, and/or sell it back to the grid.

The masterclass will have a particular focus on the burgeoning vehicle-to-grid (V2G) market, which enables energy stored in electric vehicles to be fed back into the national electricity network to help supply energy at times of peak demand.

The masterclass will be split into two parts: the first part will see two industry experts deliver individual presentations on how to accelerate the smart grid transition; and the second part will be an open Q&A, allowing the live audience to have their smart grid questions answered by our presenters.
