The inaugural roundtable of the Initiative on Smart Energy and Network Technologies took place in May 2013. It brought together experts from various sectors of the energy and ICT (information and communications technology) industries to discuss innovative solutions towards the advancement of smart energy. That is, how can we use ICT to bring about more efficient, cleaner, cheaper and safer energy?
Government officials, academics, business executives and NGO directors addressed problems of capital formation, public policy and technical applications that have been impeding the growth of smart energy networks for years. The resulting report captures the insights and opinions of those participating members.
