Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability

Department of Physics

Dr Tim Jarratt, Group Head of Strategy, National Grid will give a seminar on Friday 19 January 12-1pm Rayleigh Seminar Room, Maxwell Centre, West Cambridge

It will cover an introduction to National Grid outlining what they do in the UK and US, challenges transmission and distribution companies face in the future, views on how quickly EV uptake will occur and what that means for network infrastructure requirements and how transmission and distribution companies will have to adapt to manage EV uptake. 

The event will be followed by a sandwich lunch.

All are welcome to attend.


Bio for Dr Timothy Jarratt (Group Head of Strategy, National Grid)

Tim studied material science as an undergraduate at Oxford before moving to Cambridge, first for the ACDMM course at the Institute for Manufacturing and then his PhD at the Engineering Design Centre (EDC). After Cambridge, Tim was a strategy consultant at Bain & Company where he focussed on the industrial, mining and private equity sectors in Europe and South Africa. He then became an equity research analyst covering the metals and mining space in the City before moving to Anglo American, where he was a senior manager in the Group Strategy team.
