Workshop Goals

The focus of this workshop will be on virtual power plants, communication protocols, security, Vehicle to grid technologies, storage technologies, demand response, data analytics, pricing strategies, integration of renewables, energy policy and sustainability. The multidisciplinary nature and the impact of these technologies are important to investigate. The introduction of free market environments and CO2 targets raises further complex issues including demand side response and pricing. Hence, the realisation of these technologies will require a major effort from all stakeholders. 


This workshop aims to bring engineers, consultants, companies, policy makers, researchers and academics in the field together to discuss current work carried out in related research groups in UK and India, key future challenges that still need addressing, and possible opportunities of collaboration. In particular, the workshop will seek to identify needs in India and UK that would benefit from bilateral collaborations, and further strengthen UK-India ties.
