Low Carbon Hub webinar catch up: The First Year of Project LEO

We’ve started a series of webinars, discussing the future of energy and our work at the Low Carbon Hub to create an energy system which is good for people and for the planet, in Oxfordshire and beyond.

For our third webinar, Melanie Bryce gave an overview of the first year of Project Local Energy Oxfordshire (LEO) – one of the most ambitious, wide-ranging, innovative, and holistic smart grid trials ever conducted in the UK, which the Low Carbon Hub is also a partner on. Zoe Toone, Marketing Coordinator at the Low Carbon Hub, introduced the webinar and took questions throughout.

Melanie Bryce is the Oxfordshire Programme Director at Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN), and also the lead on Project LEO (Local Energy Oxfordshire). As a Chartered Engineer, Mel has spent her entire career in the energy industry spanning roles from Asset Management to Investment and Regulation. A lifelong passion for the energy industry has led to working on Project LEO, the most wide-ranging trial of flexibility on the distribution network undertaken to date. Previous projects have included running the installation programme for Primary Substation Works across the Asset Management Portfolio, and advising on the replacement profile for subsea cables.
