Smart Living solutions are at the heart of Wales’ drive towards achieving its low carbon ambitions.  This ranges from smart energy technologies to ICT / data management solutions to achieving a balance between consumer demand and supply.

Wales is supporting R&D through both industry and academia with our researchers leading the way in several key energy and environment areas.  This includes Cardiff University’s Energy Systems Research Institute where the focus is the integration of renewable energy systems into the national network.

Welsh Government is also working with key stakeholders across the private sector, voluntary and third sectors plus academia to formulate a clear policy and strategy to deliver a range of benefits for Wales.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts at this event to further the debate in this exciting area. Further information is available at Smart Living, Innovation Support, Green Growth Wales and Local Energy, or call 03000 6 03000
