The purpose of the meeting, kindly hosted by the University of Birmingham, led by UK Regular Members John Wright (B5) & Thomas Charlton (D2) and supported by Professor Gareth Taylor, was to provide a high-level overview of the ongoing activities in CIGRE related Study Committee B5 (Protection & Automation) and Study Committee D2 (Information Systems & Telecommunications). Technical Brochures published in the last year were highlighted, along with a status update on active Working Groups where the UK has an interest. Presentations were made around the themes of the impact of renewables on protection and the applications of data and communication to a modern power system.  Latest activities approved by the B5 and D2 Study Committees during the recent Paris Session 2022 and feedback on possible future work items, including joint D2/B5 working groups were discussed.
