1 The ‘Integrated Energy Network’ – EPRI’s insight and an invitation to hear more about it

From the IFRF Office
Contributed by Philip Sharman
Sheffield, Monday 7th August 2017

It is clear that the energy systems of the future will need to give customers the flexibility to use, produce and manage energy as they choose, while improving access to reliable, safe, affordable and cleaner energy for all.  To achieve this future requires an integrated view of energy and natural resources.  

This is the thinking behind the essential insight of the Integrated Energy Network (IEN), developed over the last two years by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) in the USA, and building on many years of thought leadership in related issues.  This intensive examining of the forces changing the world’s energy systems culminated in EPRI’s report ‘The Integrated Energy Network – Connecting Customers with Reliable, Safe, Affordable, and Cleaner Energy’ published in February.
