Connecting Projects to the Grid 2023  | 14 June 2023 - Burges Salmon, London

Understand how both the transmission and distribution networks are modernising to facilitate more connections, and how new projects can operate within current capacity constraints.

You will hear insight into new innovations, network upgrades, and how reforms to the connections process may streamline current queues. Developers will provide first hand advice on how they have secured a connection for new energy infrastructure accross the UK.

Learn how to achieve a quicker and cheaper connection time, while operating within existing network capacity constraints. The day will explore the technology unlocking capacity and consider key solutions including co location, bespoke innovations and private wire connections.


  • Explore how the network needs to improve to incorporate new projects, meet future demand and reach net zero targets by 2030
  • Understand how new policy and regulatory frameworks are creating a reformed approach to the energy system – managing which projects are given priority and creating certainty around cost and timings
  • Hear about plans to improve existing transmission infrastructure including asset management and digitalisation plans
  • Learn about how your project can operate within current network capacity – gaining quicker connections times through solutions such as co-location, private wire connections and new technology
  • Discover future plans for the distribution network – exploring new projects that are aimed at improving connection times and meeting demand
  • Gain a practical understanding on planning and consenting new grid infrastructure – with emphasis on engaging local communities and working with local authorities
