"Thank you very much for a your highly informative Conference on Dynamic Pricing and Demand Response.  I found the presentations to be varied, in depth and robust.  The Event offered me valuable insights and was well worth the investment required to attend.  Congratulations!
I look forward to attending your future events"

 “The DR industry in Europe is still in the early innings of growth, but is fast gaining traction with increasing awareness and also support in various EU member states. Conferences like the one organized by SMi: “Demand Response & Dynamic Pricing”, which was held on May 18th & 19th, 2011 are the kind of gatherings needed to stimulate the Demand Response industry in Europe to gain traction. The conference was very well organized, indeed an inspiring two day event. For Entelios, a relatively new player as Demand Response aggregator, who's giving to utility, grid and/or transmission operators a firm capacity resource, are such gatherings critical to build its network and become a strong player operating in tomorrow's smart grid.”
Oliver U. Stahl, CEO  entelios – moving energy
 

The promise of Demand Response and Dynamic Pricing could save utilities billions in capital expenditure on peak demand infrastructure, and create synergies between customers and the utilities that will assist in managing cost, and reducing environmental impact of power generation and consumption.
Thanks again for inviting me to the Demand Response event. Very well organized, great presentations! 
We will address key Demand Response and Dynamic Pricing issues such as;

EU policies

Regulatory framework

The role of smart metering

Creating a secure and balanced energy supply

Dynamic price structures for networks, producers and consumers

Commercial, industrial and consumer engagement.
 
Major European utilities and leading industry bodies will present in-depth case studies on DR programs for Germany, Poland, Denmark, Spain and Ireland. We will also hear from Telecom Italia, Italy’s leading telephone operator who will help us understand the big consumers point of view, and Indesit will provide a case study on the role of the consumer and their Direct Digital Control contribution to the Smart Grid.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
