Electricity North West, in collaboration with Carbon Coop, would like to invite you to a 1-day interactive workshop on the opportunities and challenges of electricity network changes and our transition to a DSO (Distribution Systems Operator) at the the Studio, The Hive, 51 Lever Street, Manchester, M1 1FN.

The challenge

The UK is committed to delivering ambitious targets for reductions in carbon emissions and the importance of these targets has created local, regional, national and international momentum and innovation to meet and exceed these targets.

New technology is changing the way that companies, communities and customers generate, distribute and consumer energy. The application of information and communication technology to existing electricity networks is transforming them into increasingly smart energy systems.

Adoption of electric vehicles, solar generation and battery storage isn’t just advantageous but essential. As well as significantly contributing to achieving low carbon targets, these smart energy systems allow people to participate in energy markets in new ways and to share the rewards of this transformation.

From DNO to DSO

It’s essential that the policy environment is positive and enables all participants to bring their skills and talents together to enable the UK to meet its low carbon targets in an innovative, inclusive and efficient way. In future, Distribution Network Operators, like Electricity North West, will have a unique role to play as Distribution Systems Operators, both enablers and participants in creating open markets which enable early adoption and implementation of new technologies and commercial opportunities.

Opportunities

These changes present huge potential economic, environmental and social opportunities – as well as great challenges and disruption to the 'business as usual' status quo. We would like to invite you to help shape our thinking and plans regarding the future of the energy system. This will be an interactive day where we will be working together in partnership to help deliver our thinking on the future of the energy system.
