SME Talk One: Carbon calculator
Electric utilities are facing a multitude of challenges: growing regulatory and customer pressure for increased reliability and reduced carbon emissions, adoption of distributed renewable generation and energy storage, increase in severe weather patterns and network outages, and the inevitability of both an ageing workforce and infrastructure.

Panel Two: How can Green Hydrogen accelerate a Net Zero electricity system?
Host - Ben Gray, Segment Marketing Manager - Power & Grid, Schneider Electric
As we increase our share of renewables on the network, we need to look for a way of storing energy over seasonal periods of time. Whether its reducing renewable curtailment, adding flexibility to the generation and demand side of the grid, or decarbonising hard to electrify industries, Green Hydrogen will have a role to play. Could it be the silver bullet on our journey to Net Zero?
