Generation, communication and use of Open Energy Data are in their early stages. What can the supply chain offer to this process? And how do we get the supply chain’s input accepted?

BEAMA and Foot Anstey were delighted to run a four-part fortnightly webinar series in late 2020 that focused on energy data and the supply chain.

With guest speakers and interactive discussion we explored the importance of energy data, the role it can play in system improvements, and how we can maximise its benefits for consumers.

Look out for more details on the next webinars coming in 2021.
