He’s used to talking policy in front of parliament, but last week, MP Julian Huppert took the discussion to the offices of Cambridge-based Sentec, the world leading supplier of smart grid and metering technology.
MP for Cambridge talks smart meters with Sentec
The Member of Parliament for Cambridge spent Friday morning touring the Sentec site and laboratory before getting the chance to experience the technology first-hand in Sentec’s demonstration room. Afterwards, Huppert, who also sits on the Home Affairs Select Committee, met with Sentec board members to discuss current government policy on smart grid and metering.
CEO Mark England commented, “As a company both founded and headquartered in Cambridge, it was fantastic to welcome our local MP Julian Huppert to Sentec and to discuss how Sentec might be able to help work with the government to develop future smart metering policy. We’re really grateful that Julian was able to take the time out of what is no doubt a very busy schedule, and we look forward to further fruitful meetings in the near future.”
This isn’t the first time this year that Sentec has played host to distinguished guests at its site. In June, the Lord Lieutenant and the Mayor of Cambridge were there to present Mark England with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation, the second year in a row that the company had been honoured with a Queen’s Award.
