The December/January 2013 edition of Electrical Engineering is now available to read in digital format.

Firstly, I’d like to take the opportunity to wish all our readers a very happy and prosperous new year. For many the last 12 months was challenging, however, what does seem apparent is that those who were prepared to face these challenges head-on, with innovation and evolution, ultimately had a successful 2012.

Looking forward there is a degree of uncertainty hanging over industry with most people still imploring the government for clarity and transparency over issues such as the Green Deal and the recent Energy Bill.

Our joint December/January issue is a bumper edition and features the latest from the world of test & measurement, machine safety, UPS & standby power, panel building, building controls and batteries & chargers. In addition, we preview the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics show that will be taking place in February.

HellermannTyton has provided this month’s competition where five lucky Electrical Engineering readers will win a high performance remote controlled car.
