What is SEND?

Keele University is working with businesses, graduates and academics to create Europe’s first ‘at scale’ Smart Energy Network Demonstrator (SEND) – a living laboratory where new energy-efficient technologies can be researched, developed and tested in a real world environment.

The SEND programme is part-funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the England 2014 to 2020 European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme.

The demonstrator will build on the University’s privately-owned and managed smart energy network infrastructure and aims to optimise energy distribution and improve the management of a range of building-based and campus-wide on-site renewable or lower carbon energy sources such as wind, solar and geothermal.

If you would like to join us to meet the team, learn how you can get involved and find out more about SEND Project, please follow the link below to book your place.

Please note, bookings for this event are by invitation only.
