Welcome to the RCEA(Sussex)

An Association for Retired Professional Engineers

President: Derek Webb CEng FIEE
I would like to introduce myself as the incoming President of the RCEA. I have been a member since 2002 and have enjoyed coming to the talks on a Tuesday afternoon at Field Place in Worthing. I have also taken part in several visits and outings. Partners are welcome to join us on the outings and come along to our monthly coffee mornings. I am a retired Electrical Engineer and spent my whole career in the rail industry with British Rail and its successors. My expertise was mostly in the Electrification Department on the Southern Region with its third rail system. If you are browsing this site and meet the criteria of retired professional engineer (mainly Incorporated or Chartered) of any discipline, I encourage you to come along to a talk and say ‘hello’?

Next Meeting:

Smart Metering
Ashley Pocock FIET, Head of Industry Change, Regulation and External Affairs at EDF Energy.
Smart Metering is currently one of the largest of UK Government’s major projects costing £12bn and involving the construction of a National Communications Infrastructure and the installation of some 100m devices into 30m plus homes and small businesses by 2020.
The talk will provide a walkthrough of the UK Smart Metering programme, how it was initiated and why Government has imposed obligations on the UK market to roll out smart metering, the policy and regulatory landscape, the actors, the end-to-end design and the technological roadmap to address obstacles to an economic, safe and secure deployment.
