This Briefing provides an introduction to electricity storage technologies and answers some key questions about the roles that storage can play within the electricity system.
This IET briefing document explains what a smart grid is and why it is different from the existing electricity grid. It explains why the move to low carbon electricity with significant amounts of variable wind generation will require new ways of balancing the electricity grid.
Publishing papers of a high technical standard with a suitable balance of practice and theory. Its scope covers a wide range of applications and apparatus in the power field.
A roundup of the Sector's activities so far this year and plans going forward.
The IET Energy Sector is actively engaged in highlighting the potentially catastrophic UK Engineering and Technology skills gap.
The IET gave oral evidence to the UK Parliament on 13 February 2013 in response to the Gas Generation Strategy.
Following a cross sector roundtable debate between senior executives from the Energy and Built Environment on the topic of the future for Heat provision, we are planning a UK road show of activities in conjunction with IET local and technical networks to obtain input from key stakeholders around the country in preparation to produce an IET positional document in conjunction with our Energy Policy team to the UK government on District Heating and Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
Ofgem’s Low Carbon Network (LCN) Fund is being invested to help Britain’s current electricity distribution network support faster and more cost effective distributed generation connections.
If you would like to meet with representatives of the IET’s Energy Sector and other IET departments in the near future then please review the key activities we will be attending in the first part of this year.
The IET’s Micro & Nano Letters publishes cutting edge global research in energy storage and energy harvesting, based on selected papers from the Asia-Pacific Conference on Transducers and Micro/Nano Technologies (APCOT 2012).
Calling for Power Electronics innovators to help enable a resilient energy system and address some of the high level challenges facing the Energy industry.

This high-level review summarises the major outcomes from a remarkable year of activity for IET Sectors.
Covers all existing energy storage techniques and at the same time deals with power system considerations for energy storage and storage applications.
This book discusses the connection of generation to distribution networks and then moves on to consider how sustainable generation can be fully integrated into the operation of the power system.
The IET represents the views of its members on a wide range of professional and technological issues.
The IET and UK Power Networks have formed a unique partnership to share knowledge gained from an innovation project (Flexible Plug and Play) that is largely funded by Ofgem’s Low Carbon Network Fund.
The E3 Academy involves three universities (Bristol, Newcastle and Nottingham) and six companies (Emerson – Control Techniques, Cummins Generator Technologies, Edwards, Parker SSD, Ricardo and Siemens Industry) working together to address the graduate recruitment crisis in the Electrical Energy Engineering (E3) sector
