The UK utilities industry is entering a critical period of investment, market and regulatory reform and technological innovation that will shape the sector for decades to come. The challenge of delivering energy and water industries that take into account the need to decarbonise, improve efficiency, manage demand and increase sustainability is one that requires collaboration between all stakeholders. The Future of Utilities brings together the leading players to debate and discuss what the industry must do to ensure that these challenges are met.

Following the success of last year’s post-conference day, The Smart Utility Forum will return in 2011, bringing together key stakeholders to discuss how utilities can take advantage of a smarter future, through a forward thinking, interactive agenda. The utilities sector is entering a period of great change. Smart meters will lead to a step change in relationships with consumers and have the potential to revolutionise the way energy is consumed. Smart grids, electric vehicles, microgeneration and water metering will play a critical role in changing how people view energy and provide opportunities for utilities to supply new services and diversify their revenue streams.
