 The Technology Strategy Board has established a Special Interest Group of KTNs and associated partners to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing across the Smart Grids, Smart Meters, Smart Homes space.

The following are anticipated as the main work areas to be pursued by the SIG:

  • To provide an overview of market-driven research, innovations and opportunities across the various domains
  • To ‘map’ work being undertaken through the TSB, through the Low Carbon Networks Fund, and through other programmes which are testing new innovations or business models
  • To exchange and disseminate knowledge and insights emerging out of funded and other projects
  • To provide a forum for discussion between KTNs, funded projects and other partners, including partners involved in complementary programmes being run as part of the Digital Britain, Low Impact Buildings, or Assisted Living programmes
  • To identify and undertake research or evaluation studies, as necessary
  • To provide a vehicle for the facilitation of joint bids to EU funding programmes etc.

The Special Interest Group will bring together four KTN’s: Energy Generation and Supply, Modern Built Environment. Electronics Sensors and Photonics, Energy and Digital Communications. The four KTN’s will form a Steering Board along with other key stakeholders and using funds provided by the Technology Strategy Board define a work programme that will be coordinated by a secretariat provided by ICT-KTN.

The Steering Board will be chaired by an independent and universally respected figure from the sectors who will be able to provide a check and balance on the work proposed. The Steering Board will also contain representatives from the major stakeholder groups and will be to take an informed view on the project work to be undertaken.

The S.I.G. will act as a catalyst to accelerate the delivery of key policy objectives formulated by the Technology Strategy Board and other government departments and agencies. The main objective being to put the UK at the fore front of this industry and to be in a position to develop commercial outcomes that can be implemented in the UK and exported to other geographies.
