The 2020 forum is to be held online over two half days, the focus is on Asset Management for day one and Asset Planning for Low Carbon in electricity business for day two.

2020 has been a challenging year that has brought about many changes in the way we work and cancelled events such as the annual EEA conference. However, the Asset Management Group are still very keen and excited to hold the forum and use a new form of delivery that will continue to bring technical professionals together in a new way and environment to continue to share experiences and knowledge for our industry.

This year's forum is designed over two half days and has allowed for breakout sessions to prompt discussion and networking amongst professionals, the structure of the sessions will continue to allow for discussion and questions.
