World : UK energy networks work to create new opportunities in the smart grid transition

The UK's Energy Networks Association (ENA) today launched a consultation seeking views on how to create a smart electricity grid that encourages new opportunities for innovation for the Open Networks Project.

“The smart grid transition has the potential to create a whole new range of market opportunities for new technology and service providers, many of whom will be participating in the UK market place for the first time," said David Smith, chief executive of the ENA.

The group is looking to make the most of the smart transition by enabling new markets for distributed energy technologies, battery storage, solar panels and services like electric vehicle to grid demand response.
