As Friends of the Supergrid moves towards its goal, it will be holding its first conference in March to discuss how to develop a pan-European transmission network that will facilitate the integration of large-scale renewable energy and the balancing and transportation of electricity.
“Supergrid is not only a business opportunity for industry but one of the best ways to empower consumers in a more price transparent and intelligent energy system. Innovative and clean technologies are being developed today that deserve leadership in our present and future societies,” says Friends of the Supergrid.
As well as developing an integrated set of proposals to deliver Supergrid, attendees at the conference will tackle a number of key issues, including:
Confirmed speakers include: Johan Vande Lanotte (Minister for Economic Affairs, Consumers and of the North Sea, Belgium), Eddie O’Conner (President, Friends of the Supergrid and CEO, Mainstream Renewable Power, Ireland) and Marcello Del Brenna (Chairman, Friends of the Supergrid and CEO of Prysmian Powerlink, Italy).
Friends of the Supergrid invite readers to join the first forum for an open and focused debate on the business case for a European Supergrid towards EU integration. For further information and to register, please here. http://www.fosg-event.eu/
