Upon my return from my ES Cornwall Scholarship, I was asked to provide some lectures on my experiences (this is part of the condition of the scholarship).

Here’s a copy of this Final Presentation (PDF) for your perusal.

This presentation touches on my experiences at OFGEM and EA Technology (both in the UK) and at Landis + Gyr (in France) where I investigated future distribution networks.

I also provide some notes on:
1) Highlights on my experiences; and
2) Some closing thoughts.


The points of interest for the quarter are the completion of my second placement with EA Technology Consulting Ltd., IEA DSM Task XIX Subtask 3, STP Module 5 “Smart Meters: Next Steps” and my attendance at the IEA Workshop on Demand Side Management.
