Webinar on Smart Grids and Island Energy Business Opportunities , 17th September 2020, online
Marine South East will be presenting at this online event to discuss the business opportunities for smart grid technologies with particular reference to isolated and island communities including port areas.
Smart grids are being developed on land, and are increasingly looking at how to incorporate marine renewable energy into the mix. Some examples of these are the Smart Energy Islands project involving the Isles of Scilly, and the ICE project focussing on Ushant and port communities.
Marine South East is collaborating with Marine-i and the EU funded ICE Project to host this webinar.
The first in a series of webinar will take place on Thursday 17th September 2020, 10am-12pm online.
Topics being discussed at this event include:
* Market opportunities for smart grid technology developers and providers
* Specific opportunities in isolated communities, ports and harbours and other geographically isolated scenarios
* Opportunities to create smart grids incorporating marine energy
* Marine-i and ICE opportunities for research assistance

There is no cost to attend this event; it is fully funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
There are eligibility criteria in order to receive direct support from the Marine-i programme. However, we welcome attendance from all interested stakeholders
The Intelligent Community Energy project (ICE) aims to design and implement innovative smart energy solutions for isolated territories in the Channel area. The Marine-i project aims to assist SME businesses in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to develop innovative marine technology around the themes of low carbon, clean marine and coastal adaptation. There is some overlap between these programmes, and this webinar will explore the possibilities of collaboration between the two, to the best advantage of developing business opportunities for industry and the supply chain.
More information on speakers and topics will be sent prior to the event.
