The Energy Event to showcase a wide range of conferences, case studies and workshops
The Organisers of the forthcoming The Energy Event, which is to be held on 11th- 12th September at the NEC, Birmingham, claim it will help organisations to fight the pressures of managing energy in a modern business environment and help forward thinking companies to turn them into competitive advantages.
Visitors will have the opportunity to gain first hand expertise and to hear in-depth explanations from organisations such as EcoCooling, the global supplier of evaporative coolers, who helped Net-A-Porter.com save 90 per cent in refrigeration costs in its warehouses.
EcoCooling will have a stand on the show floor, alongside all of the most important energy companies.
The latest technologies, concepts and case studies will pack the conference sessions held in the show’s four theatres, too. These sessions will gather together some of the industry’s finest minds and most experienced organisations to offer the very latest thinking and a range of solutions, from energy management, efficiency, and procurement through to products and services.
The Energy Event will also provide a stage for industry leaders and ‘A-list’ celebrities to deliver market insight and thought leadership from their unique perspectives.
Confirmed speakers include Philip Lowe, director general for energy at The European Commission, and Professor Brian Cox, particle physicist and TV presenter. Sessions will be chaired by Daisy McAndrew, special correspondent at ITV News.
Visitors will see more than 150 exhibitors, including the UK’s key management and efficiency product manufacturers, energy suppliers and service providers all under one roof. Central to The Energy Event are four theatres, which promise to hold visitors captivated and stimulated:
Energy Information Theatre is packed with case studies from energy users, such as: how regulated gas distributor Wales and West Utilities secured savings of more than £2 million from their energy management approach. This theatre will also offer an opportunity to find out about ISO 50001 and understand the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving energy management systems.
Phil Owen, director general of International Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, DECC, will be presenting the economics behind carbon reduction, and Trevor Hutchings from DECC will be talking about How energy efficiency should fit into a strategy towards zero carbon while making energy efficiency a priority.
Keynote speaker James Woudhuysen, professor of forecasting and innovation at De Montfort University, will offer some thought provoking and frank views as he explains his prediction about power cuts and why subsidies don’t work.
ESTA Theatre is curated by the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA) whose seminars are designed with energy managers, engineers and directors in mind. The theatre will offer a basic understanding of energy principles, awareness of policy issues and effective strategy implementation to produce savings. It also focuses on maintenance and management costs, which will help businesses to understand how to bring ongoing energy costs down.
Energy Insight Conference will cover debate around the issues that are crucial to professionals responsible for energy purchasing, carbon reduction policies and energy management within their organisations.
It will be chaired on the first day by Daisy McAndrew, ITV News special correspondent, and include a compelling panel discussion on low carbon energy sources and how the UK is set to cope with demand.
Panellists will include: Bob Sorrell, vice president of public partnerships, BP; Chris Train, network operations director, National Grid; Mike Hogg, managing director, DONG Energy; George Day, strategy director, economics, ETI and Peter Bennell, CEO, Haven Power.
Visitors also have the chance to hear from Professor Brian Cox and Alastair Campbell – both there to answer the fundamental and most challenging questions about the universe and politics, spin, and communications strategy.
The afternoon sessions are curated by the Major Energy Users’ Council and will include discussions about Britain’s decarbonisation and the role and effect of bureaucracy on energy efficiency.
Hosted Content Theatre will feature presentations hosted by a mixture of exhibitors including Waterwise and npower. The seminars will cover water efficiency and energy procurement and will also include a live energy debate.
