This is the home of the unique 10th Cleanpower & Smart Grids Conference Summit 2019 (#CPSG19) event series. The series brings together technology inventors with commercial innovators, investors and the business network. The 2-day conference summit this year addresses the Grand Challenge of clean energy growth enabled by technologies including machine learning & data analytics, cybersecurity, connectivity, energy efficiency and energy storage.
What is the vision? What are the risks? What technical issues of deployment of new technology exist? How will we commercialise and what new business models will be used? We will present and facilitate discussion. We aim for collective excellence through open talks.
We warmly welcome you to join us in Cambridge, UK this summer 2019, to help solve Grand Challenge of Clean Energy Growth enabled by data, machine learning and digital connectivity and energy technologies such as battery materials and storage. This approach aligns both with private sector technology inventors and commercialising innovators and the UK and other governments. Join us to update, discuss, understand, network, dine, meet, build relationships and invest or fund your business.
Cleanpower & Smart Grids is part of CIR’s network of exchange and global event series. We offer valuable support and market access to those interested in understanding and investing in industry 4.0 technologies and business models applied to challenges such as growing energy provision reliably and cleanly. With complexity and (cyber and investment) risk high, new business models unfamiliar, ROI and market timing unclear, technology implementation challenging, yet investment urgency very high, the CIR network and event series is a bold initiative to connect, understand and move forward. I hope this will be of value to corporates, entrepreneurs at growth companies listed or privately held, engineers, inventors, innovators and investors.
We understand your feedback around using the time efficiently at conferences. This is why we now have over a dozen modularised ticket types that enable you to get the most out of the conference and dinner, given your schedule. Though we still recommend the all event pass! We also try to ensure that programmes are as open as possible with panel questions and also with good time for networking followups. At our conferences we are looking to build a wholesome network; we do not bring in famous or professional speakers and we seek speakers who are involved in the industry and not only wish to communicate their technologies, innovations and case studies, but also wish to hear and gain value from a range of other peer speakers and participants. We set the size of the conference such that there is ample time to locate and meet any other participant that you wish to interact with, rather than allowing the conference to grow beyond this point. We also invite senior decision makers on both days. The first day is a day of technology briefings. The second day is the innovation summit: how do we deploy and commercialise the technologies that we discussed on day 1. Each day is standalone and there are options to split a one day attendance into two halves, afternoon of day 1 and morning of day 2, so that you can also take in the popular networking dinner evening at Christ’s College!

to help solve the Grand Challenge of clean energy as global demand grows and to serve large markets for innovation in energy generation, energy storage, harvesting and efficiency, materials, digital connectivity & ML/data analytics by bringing together powerful ecosystems
Understand selected or general sectors and their challenges and business models and discuss
1. Drivers, trends, challenges and market timing 2. Business models, economic value flow, monetisation, ROI & growth3. Investment and risk for corporate and scale-up businesses.
The forums begin with an executive briefing technology day followed by the dinner networking evening then the following morning is the commercial innovation conference summit and showcase; the programme is designed for very busy senior executives, shorter and more flexible and intense than many events but with enough time for networking and relationship-building.
