CDT group visit to National Grid Control Centre

A group of Energy CDT students visited the National Grid Control Centre on 26 February 2015.

The group toured the control centre and observed the operation of the national grid from the viewing gallery. This was followed by an informative and enjoyable series of presentations from national grid staff covering: Operation, Generation and Demand, Balancing the System, Predicting Future Demand and Generation, and Energy Challenges.
