Britain’s largest electricity distributor will be tackling the industry’s ‘hot topics’ at Utility Week Live.

What is your electricity challenge? Because whatever it is, UK Power Networks wants to hear from you during the UK’s biggest utility show at Birmingham NEC from May 17 to 18 (stand C34).

The company which keeps the lights on in London, the South East and East Anglia will have a panel of electricity experts in the hot seat ready to answer your electricity conundrums. 

Whether you are a customer who wants to power a new fleet of electric vehicles, connect a solar farm to the electricity network or store electricity, get in touch for advice from the team.

Visit the company’s stand to see a model of UK Power Networks’ Smarter Network Storage (SNS) facility - Britain’s ‘biggest battery’ at Leighton Buzzard, in Bedfordshire. A new video will offer a unique glimpse inside the unit, with virtual tours of the facility.

Mark Adolphus, director of connections at UK Power Networks, said: “This is the biggest utility show in the UK and we look forward to seeing some of our customers there. This is a lively new way for us to engage with the challenges they face and offer practical solutions.

“We want to make life easier for our customers, with more accessible services, so this is also an opportunity to listen to feedback and shape further improvements to our networks and services. Whatever power challenges customers are facing, we want to help.”
