Smart Metering and PV Seminar to explore technologies of the future
The team behind the Solar Photovoltaic Academic Research Consortium (SPARC) project at Swansea University will host their first event on 29 September 2010 at the Village Hotel, Swansea.
The Smart Metering and PV Seminar will give an insight into current and future technologies that are currently available and those under development for both Smart Metering and PV technologies.
The Seminar is targeted at raising awareness between the key stakeholders in the South Wales region towards the current status of Smart Metering, PV technologies and the Feed in Tariff (FIT) (a scheme which intends to encourage the uptake of small-scale low carbon technologies through tariff payments). The potential challenges that face the users of these technologies will be raised and discussed.
Key speakers from energy utilities; impartial research organisations; commercial companies and Universities (including Swansea) will present at the event.
The event is supported by BRE Wales, an independent and impartial research-based consultancy, testing and training organisation with offices throughout the UK.
The Seminar will comprise targeted presentations on the following topics:
" Opportunities for energy monitoring, smart metering and FITs Including case studies from monitored projects
" Smart Metering roll out projects
" Energy Management for large organisations
" Renewable energy performance and monitoring
" Advantages of solar power generation and comparisons with other EU countries
" Maintenance and long term monitoring of renewable energy systems
" Opportunities for investment
The Seminar will be held at the Village Hotel on 29 September 2010, 9am-4pm and is open to all those interested in Smart Metering and PV applications in the built environment. The event is free of charge and a buffet lunch will be provided. Early registration is advised as places are limited.
