A successor of the Smart Grid Forum, this new forum is tasked with helping to implement and steer BEIS and Ofgem's Smart Systems &amp; Flexibility Plan, as well as provide industry oversight on wider network issues related to the evolution of the electricity system. techUK is delighted to join the Forum and will keep members updated as work progresses, highlighting areas where members can directly contribute.</p> <p>BEIS published its long awaited <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33059&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">Clean Growth Strategy</a> setting out proposals for decarbonising the UK economy through the 2020s. The strategy builds on a number of successes. In 2016, 47% of energy came from low carbon sources and the UK has more offshore wind capacity than anyone else. Domestic energy consumption is down by 17% on 1990 levels, despite the growth in electronics and the arrival of the internet. There is, however, more to be done if the UK is to continue to support low carbon growth. We worked closely with Government on key aspects of the strategy including the <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33060&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">built environment</a>, <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33061&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">business energy costs</a>, and <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33062&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">smart infrastructure</a>.

Well over 100 suppliers have committed to make information systems more open and easier to integrate, to enable the free-flow of patient information between products, and hence across the care continuum. As part of taking this work forward, techUK is a member of INTEROPen, who work to develop FHIR profiles for the NHS, based upon real-world scenarios and use cases. We are looking for medical device companies to join a conversation to establish the scenarios and use cases that exist for devices.

The Bill would require any IoT-enabled devices sold to Government to be patchable, not have any known security vulnerabilities, and permit users to change their default passwords. Whilst the Bill is narrow in its application to Government purchases, it marks a major step forward for IoT devices which to date have been almost entirely unregulated. Discussions around security in an IoT world are already underway across the UK and Europe, with a suite of regulatory and non-regulatory interventions being weighed up. techUK is heavily involved in these discussions and will be establishing a joint IoT and Cyber Security Council Working Group to take positions forward. <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=05281101S9653&amp;CC=&amp;w=31977&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">The first meeting is due to take place on the 5 September</a>.</p> http://www.techuk.org/insights/newsletters/item/11184-policy-pulse-your-weekly-update-on-tech-and-digital-policy Policy Pulse | Your Weekly Update on Tech and Digital Policy http://www.techuk.org/insights/newsletters/item/11184-policy-pulse-your-weekly-update-on-tech-and-digital-policy Wed, 09 Aug 2017 08:57:00 +0000 Tom Morrison-Bell(techUK) tom.morrison-bell@techuk.org This week, the Government have announced to implement GDPR through the Data Protection Bill, the biggest change to data protection rules in over 20 years. <p>It's been a busy two weeks for tech – the Government has revealed how it intends to use a new Data Protection Bill to implement GDPR, the Home Secretary has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to examine the impact of EU migration on the UK, and the Government will launch a new fund to back UK startups.

The core digital economy ministers remain unchanged with Karen Bradley MP staying on as Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and Matt Hancock MP as Minister for Digital and Culture. However a number of changes within BEIS may mean a shift in focus on how digital and innovation is viewed across sectors such as Energy and Transport. Full portfolios are still to be confirmed. <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=05281101S5053&amp;CC=&amp;w=31115&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">techUK remains clear on the task at hand</a> for the new Government - to deliver a modern and dynamic economy that works for everyone and in which everyone works.

To see the full newsletter, including industry and regulatory news, you can download the full document below for members only.</p> <p>To subscribe to this and other updates, visit the <a href="http://www.techuk.org/services/newsletters">newsletters page</a> under the services tab of the techUK website.</p> <hr /> <p>May marks <a href="http://www.techuk.org/insights/news/item/10852-one-year-to-go-until-gdpr">one year to go until GDPR</a>. The new regulation stipulates how organisations of every size and sector should handle and process personal data, with a greater emphasis on individuals’ rights and controls over how their information is used. This is both a massive opportunity for the IoT, building a culture of data confidence by giving the public greater control over their data, but also a massive challenge for a technology which often has no obvious user interfaces. New rights on data portability, automated decision making and profiling could require a rethink of how services are offered and systems deployed, particularly as we look toward taking IoT out of often siloed implementation.</p> <p>In addition to helping members understand the implications of policy changes, we are also supporting the market in unlocking the full value of use case applications. Joined by <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp1KR0Ap0_U">Vinay Gupta</a> &amp; the Digital Catapult, at a recent seminar <a href="http://www.techuk.org/insights/news/item/10862-insight-blockchain-iot">looking at the role of blockchain within IoT</a>, we heard how the internet of agreements and blockchain can drive new value within the power system, as well as enhance the smart city proposition, by unlocking the value of data through the creation of a digital market place.

This involved looking at how we can use technology to create new value within the power system, and what new functions will be required to deliver it. If you’d like to know more about the outputs and outcomes of the work packages that make up the second phase of the project <a href="https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/future-power-system-architecture-phase-2-fpsa2-report-launch-tickets-33659240695">click here</a>.</p> <p>We also hosted a roundtable with Smart Energy GB and Jeff Hardy looking at <a href="events/briefing/item/10578-how-could-we-buy-energy-in-the-smart-future">how customers might buy energy in the future</a>. Exploring the cultural and technological shifts that have transformed customer needs and expectations, we discussed how smart meters and sector convergence are opening up new opportunities for innovation.</p> <p>Continuing our look at future markets and how to unlock their full value we held a seminar looking at the role of Blockchain within IoT, in particular how we can enhance ‘smart’ within energy and cities. Joined by <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp1KR0Ap0_U">Vinay Gupta</a> and IBM we heard how the internet of agreements and Blockchain can drive new value within the power system looking beyond consumer products and to how we engage new technologies such as smart appliances and EVs in our national infrastructure to deliver smarter demand side management. We also heard from the Digital Catapult on the recently launched SyncroniCity project which looks at how distributed ledgers can enhance the smart city proposition by unlocking the value of data through the creation of a digital market place.</p> <p>Keeping the focus on smart cities, May saw us publish our <a href="insights/reports/item/10665-digital-devolution">Digital Devolution: A Guide for Mayors</a>. A joint initiative with techUK’s Local Government Programme, the guide seeks to encourage the newly elected metro mayors to adopt a digital first mind-set, building a culture where innovation can flourish.</p> <p>As part of our work around <a href="http://www.nesta.org.uk/blog/how-london-borough-harrow-building-council-future">culture change and facilitating an environment which attracts, catalyses, and incubates innovation</a> we held a <a href="http://www.techuk.org/insights/opinions/item/10805-what-happened-at-techuk-s-harrow-council-workshop-what-next">workshop with Harrow Council</a>. The session bought together members and officers from across the council to discuss current service delivery and the opportunities for smarter, more efficient delivery of local services.</p> <p>This month also saw us focus in on infrastructure itself, particularly how we can design, manage and use our assets better to enhance economic productivity and growth. As a part of the <a href="http://www.techuk.org/events/workshop/item/10610-smart-infrastructure-workshop">NIC’s ongoing technology study we held a session</a> bringing together leaders from across the energy, transport, local government, telecoms and digital sectors to discuss the potential applications of technology in infrastructure and what action is needed to support their deployment.

We’ll seek to leverage our unique position to&nbsp;shape the broader narrative, taking a view of the whole system impact of infrastructure transformation. This includes not just a review of how 'smart' is going&nbsp;to revolutionise infrastructure design and use, but also how current trends, such as CAVs and smart cities, are driving future infrastructure demands. A member<br />round-table was held on April 07 for those keen to help drive our activities in this space. <a href="http://www.techuk.org/events/conference/item/10548-smarteruk-smart-infrastructure-thought-leadership-discussion">Click here</a> for more details.</p> <p><br />This piece of work fits within a wider discussion about the role of tech in realising&nbsp;increased UK productivity and prosperity. With its <a href="http://www.techuk.org/insights/opinions/item/10346-what-does-the-digital-strategy-mean-for-uk-tech">Digital Strategy</a>, Government has set out a clear ambition for the UK to be a world leading digital economy. This&nbsp;ambition can be seen throughout the Strategy, Spring and upcoming Clean Growth&nbsp;Plan. We've been working with key partners to help these opportunities be realised.</p> <p><br />On March 23rd we held a session with the Future Cities Catapult giving members&nbsp;greater insight into a new proposed project – Hyper Connected and Data Rich Cities&nbsp;aimed at establishing a city&shy;scale demonstrator that will test innovative products&nbsp;and services based on transformative digital technologies, including next generation&nbsp;telecoms technology, advanced 3D data and impact modelling. The session was&nbsp;particularly focused on how the demonstrator could support the creation of new&nbsp;markets, overcome significant barriers in market development and prove business<br />cases for new products and services.</p> <p><br />On <a href="http://www.techuk.org/events/workshop/item/10516-delivering-innovative-and-user-centric-services-workshop-with-harrow-council">May 09</a> we will host a workshop with senior officers from Harrow Council looking&nbsp;at the art of the possible, and breaking down barriers allowing technologists and&nbsp;local government to work together in delivering innovative and user centric services<br />fit for the future.</p> <p><br />Finally, just before signing off, I'd like to remind you of our upcoming <a href="events/social-event/item/10022-iot-data-drinks-reception-2017">Internet of&nbsp;Things and Data Drinks</a>&nbsp;in April. The event is an opportunity for members to explore&nbsp;how IoT and Data will transform our future and get hands on with some exciting&nbsp;tech demos.

We were delighted that the Digital Strategy outlined a number of initiatives that techUK and its members are involved in.</p> <p>The programme also had a busy month with continued discussions on the future of cross-border data transfers, GDPR implementation and the new ePrivacy proposals. We are also looking forward to partnering with Cloud Expo Europe next week to highlight the importance of cloud adoption in the UK.</p> <p>If you would like to get involved in techUK's Cloud, Data, Analytics and AI Programme please contact <a href="mailto:sue.daley@techuk.org">Sue Daley</a> or <a href="mailto:jeremy.lilley@techuk.org">Jeremy Lilley</a></p> <hr /> <p><strong>AI, Big Data &amp; Analytics News</strong></p> <p><strong>techUK</strong></p> <p><a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz/lz.aspx?p1=0595898S9823&amp;CC=&amp;w=29341&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1" target="_blank">Data at the Heart of the UK Digital Strategy</a></p> <p><a href="insights/news/item/10310-funding-for-uk-leadership-in-ai-secured?utm_source=http%3a%2f%2fmarketing.intellectuk.info%2flz%2f&amp;utm_medium=email&amp;utm_campaign=Cloud%2c+Data%2c+Analytics+and+AI+Update+08+March+2017&amp;utm_term=Cloud,%20Data,%20Analytics%20and%20AI%20Update%2008%20March%202017&amp;utm_content=89859&amp;gator_td=OLg4JA41qhuvB69FoBVgEpSU%2btiV7mbAFPQhxv%2bCQ2gF96wSPfXvMdqFR4rLqHLrfZl%2f83DpFjAovEc6ct3%2bLZkZkkFcdmOE204ytEqJxmAJG97PkAFREhady19y%2byxob4KxIwXUtG6xPQ4YTGWuAvQXYcdifxqQ5RHe1hOvm%2bRK1WhgNL0O1YBacBtcgwpFiNORWStTRYXUY5IvYD8qHA%3d%3d" target="_blank">Funding for UK Leadership in AI Secured</a></p> <p><a href="insights/opinions/item/10412-women-in-data-importance-of-role-models-visibility?utm_source=http%3a%2f%
