About this event

The talk will shed light on what goes on in the background when you switch on the kettle, or turn on the TV? How does National Grid balance energy in real time, juggling a hugely diverse energy mix with second-to-second changes to national demand. What challenges has renewable generation added to the already critically complex task and what is the future of the transmission system as more and more distributed, unmetered generation enters the mix?"
