  • Facilitating the energy system transition: network operators’ views on the next steps
  • Asset optimisation technologies you could ‘plug and play’ into other networks
  • The UK’s plans for taking vulnerable customers on the net zero journey
  • How to get involved in the Gas Goes Green 2021 programme of work

Electricity-focused sessions:

  • Networks’ initiatives for building the flexibility markets of the future
  • Plans for protecting vulnerable customers as we decarbonise electricity networks
  • Fast follower technologies to emerge from recent NIC and NIA projects
  • Smarter asset management: what have we learnt from the innovation projects in the past year?

Cross-vector (gas and electric) perspectives on:

  • Enabling net zero: decarbonising the energy system
  • The decarbonisation of heat
  • New solutions for future energy systems
  • Which international net zero projects can we learn from?
