Data & Disruptive Technologies in Energy

We are delighted to invite you and your colleagues to our Data & Disruptive Technologies in Energy seminar at our offices in London on Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Digitalisation, decentralisation and decarbonisation are together transforming the energy sector, and increasingly the application of data gathering, open access data, blockchain, smart contracts, the IoT and AI are becoming integral to the ongoing viability and improvement of the energy system. However, whilst these innovations have phenomenal potential there are legal issues arising which could hamper their successful deployment.

During this seminar Clyde & Co's team of specialist data & technology and energy lawyers, together with leading industry experts, will identify the legal, legislative and regulatory issues associated with these disruptors and will discuss the potential solutions to those issues.

Over the course of the seminar we will cover:

  • Data and disruption across the sectors: what can the Energy sector learn? – A Q&A with Mark Enzer, Chief Technical Officer, Mott MacDonald and Director of the National Digital Twin Programme, Centre for Digital Built Britain
  • The 4Ds of disruption in the energy sector – How data and technology are transforming the modern energy system - Stuart Ravens, Chief Analyst, GlobalData
  • A better data infrastructure for the energy sector: A look back at initiatives in open and shared data, and how we can learn from other sectors - Olivier Thereaux, Head of Technology, Open Data Institute
  • Open visibility of infrastructure assets and its effects on the planning & consenting process - Brian Greenwood, Partner, Clyde & Co
  • Smart use of data in the energy sector – Key legal issues - Mark Williamson, Partner, and Tom Tippett, Legal Director, Clyde & Co
  • The data driven energy system – policy and regulatory gaps (and how to fill them) - Barnaby Wharton, Director, Future Electricity Systems, RenewableUK
  • Smart contracts and the blockchain in energy systems – Trading, auto-payments and construction efficiencies – Lee Bacon, Partner, Clyde & Co
  • New approaches to dispute resolution in a decentralised network - Richard Power, Partner, Clyde & Co

This seminar is free of charge and qualifies for 4 hours of CPD.
