    Join Free Training on Smart Grids and Network Regulation

    The Clean Energy Solutions Center<http://cleanenergysolutions.org/> in partnership with Enerdata<http://www.enerdata.net/> invites you to join a free online training on key regulatory issues associated with the deployment of smart grids. Drawing on case studies from Europe, this training will delve into the regulatory regimes, anticipated costs and benefits of smart grids, best practices that foster grid integration, and regulatory frameworks that support (or hinder) smart grids.

    Date and Time: January 22, 2013 at 15:00 GMT (Click here<http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Smart+Grids+and+Network+Regulation+Webinar&iso=20130122T16&p1=195&ah=1&am=30> to check your local time)
    Panelists:

    ·         Bruno Lapillonne, Vice-President and Co-founder of Enerdata

    ·         Nicolas, Brizard, Associated Consultant at Enerdata


    Smart grids are seen by many as an effective solution to address some of the toughest challenges the electricity industry has faced so far; the integration of renewables on a very large scale, the promised rise in number of electric vehicles, the necessity of energy efficiency, the improved security of supply or the arrival of the ‘prosumer'. Equipment manufacturers and IT solution providers are eagerly awaiting the hundreds of billions of euros to be invested over the next decades. In this article, we advocate that smart grid technologies have the potential to transform the electricity markets given they are for the most part readily available, but, the correct regulatory framework first needs to be put in place. Failure to recognise the need for a regulatory overhaul can only hamper and delay the deployment of smart grids and their expected benefits.
