Smart local energy systems: unlocking net zero

Monday 19th July - Thursday 22nd July

In July, UKRI will be hosting a major online event focusing on smart local energy systems, in alignment with Net Zero Week.


Integrating energy use, generation and storage locally could save costs, cut emissions, and bring communities greener, cheaper energy. This online event will shine a spotlight on the issue – exploring UKRI-funded energy system projects around the UK, the latest research, the lessons being learnt and the hurdles found on the way. The conference and exhibition will showcase and share the experiences of many of the smart local energy system projects funded by UKRI under the ‘Prospering from the Energy Revolution’ programme.


Delegates will be able to hear expert speakers, view virtual booths showcasing challenge participants and funded projects, and network through 1:1 sessions. With separate sessions designed for policymakers, regulators, energy and technology businesses, local authorities, investors and communities, the event offers an opportunity for anyone interested in the path to net zero to find out more about this energy revolution in the making.

Exhibit at the event

There are still opportunities for exhibitors for the event which is likely to attract over 500 delegates. Each ‘virtual exhibition booth’ allows material to be uploaded. You can be available on the ‘stand’ for chats and offer 1:1 meetings.
