Welcome

Utility Week: Electricity & Heat

IET.TV and the IET Energy Sector have teamed up with Utility Week to share key conference sessions from UW Live 2016, covering current topics in Electricity, Heat, Water and Gas.

Utility Week Live is the UK’s only exhibition dedicated to the gas, electricity and water industries, connecting Britain’s utilities to their suppliers, contractors and partners.

The IET were at the show to promote CIRED 2017 and to capture the CPD-accredited seminar programme with more than 40 seminar sessions organised around six content streams: Innovation, skills, data & analytics, Totex, customers and resilience. View the full conference stream.

The conference speakers are experts from both inside and outside the UK utility industry. We have selected a few of the sessions below for your interest and enjoyment.
