Our Sponsors

We are very grateful to the following organisations who have kindly sponsored ICWES18.

National Grid logo 

Gold Sponsor - National Grid

Electricity is the life blood of society and the economy. When someone flicks a light switch in their home or office, they know the light will come on. That, in a nutshell, sums up our primary responsibility. We run the high voltage electricity wires that keep the UK's homes and businesses supplied with the electricity they rely on day in, day out. We make sure that Britain has the energy it needs by making sure supply meets demand every second of every day.

Silver Sponsor - Thales

We create the ingenious technological systems and innovations that impact and improve people's lives every day. Even if you haven't heard the name Thales, you've definitely benefited from our inventiveness. Local engineers and technicians make up a significant number of our 25,000-strong team of employees. Together we supply invention, ingenuity and inspiration across five core areas: Aerospace, Space, Transportation, Defence and Security.
