About this event

Abstract for President’s Address 2018

The UK energy systems have been developed by government and industry over a number of decades with key decisions being made from the top-down over its future operation, delivering great benefits to consumers over a long period of time.
However with the need to decarbonise our energy system being ever more present, consumer voice and consumer choice now play a prominent role in shaping the market, products and services available and may allow the customer to finally be king.
The IET President’s Address will highlight how the challenges these changes will bring, will provide exciting opportunities for our engineers working in the energy sector as the industry must learn to innovate quickly in new products and services, invest in infrastructure and to continually integrate a complex and fast-moving energy system.

Robotic systems are perhaps at their most valuable when carrying out tasks that would otherwise put humans in danger. In some cases they give us visibility or enable operations in environments so extreme humans could not even wilfully venture - space, nuclear and deep subsea.
