The Energy Event, one of Europe’s leading energy exhibitions and conferences taking place on the 13th-14th September 2011 at the Birmingham N.E.C., has announced that five out of the ‘Big Six’ will be exhibiting at this year’s event, along with the UK’s leading I&C suppliers and brokers.
For the last 10 years The Energy Event has attracted the leading organisations from the energy industry as sponsors, exhibitors and conference speakers. Sponsored by British Independent Utilities (BIU), a world class systems-based utility consultancy that specialises in large multi-location portfolios, other co- sponsors for this year’s event include: E.ON, powerPerfector, Haven Power and UX Energy Services. Once again, the event will partner with the most recognised organisations, reflecting the wide spectrum of industries that are relevant to the event. These include organisations such as EIC, the Energy Services & Technology Association (ESTA), the Major Energy Users’ Council (MEUC), BCIA, CIBSE, WTL, Waterwise and the Energy Institute.
Providing a forum for debate and discussion of the biggest issues affecting energy pricing, risk, and the reduction of carbon is the Insight Conference, which takes place during both days of the event and is sponsored by Nord Pool Spot, operators of the largest market for electrical energy in the world.
The Insight Conference will host some of the leading experts and commentators in the fields of economics, climate change, energy policy and security, the nuclear industry, demand management and carbon reduction, including Energy and Climate Change Minister Charles Hendry, whose key note speech on day one will touch on topics such as Electricity Market Reform, the CRC energy efficiency scheme, the Green Deal and he will discuss what he believes will be the required energy mix to address the UK’s future energy gap and secure energy supply. Mr. Hendry is followed by CEO of RWE npower, Volker Beckers who will focus on carbon reduction and management by delivering a presentation entitled: ‘Addressing the energy gap – which fuels will become prevalent and how will carbon taxes affect this mix?’.
Also on day one of the Insight Conference, Director of Regulation and Energy Policy for E.ON, Sara Vaughan will deliver her seminar on ‘Cleaner and Better Energy’, and sessions on the afternoons of both days, will be hosted by the Major Energy Users’ Council (MEUC), where npower’s Head of Corporate Sales, Wayne Mitchell will discuss ‘Creating a Revenue Stream from Demand Side Management’.
The second conference stream at the event is the Information Theatre, which offers a unique opportunity for energy professionals to hear case studies and reports from peers. Supported by key industry associations and organisations, the sessions are practical, learning-based and provide insights into the best practices and techniques, focussing on your specific needs within the sector. On day two of the event, E.ON’s Head of Microgeneration Thomas Buss will discuss ‘Microgeneration technologies – what’s right for your organisation? How does the Renewable Heat Incentive affect you?’
The Energy Event also features a Hosted Content Area, which includes presentations on both days brought by Water Technology List (WTL), EIC and npower. Hosting an interactive energy debate in the afternoons, npower will also be delivering its findings on people’s thoughts on current energy legislation and its impact on business. Talking about npower’s presence at The Energy Event, Director of Industrial and Commercial Markets David Cockshott said:
“It is really important to npower that we have a strong presence at the event as it gives us another fantastic opportunity to meet with businesses face-to-face to showcase our products and services and to listen to the energy management issues that they are facing. It’s a great forum for helping businesses on all aspects of their energy use and the benefits of taking action to better manage purchasing risks and energy efficiency programmes in an integrated strategy”.
E.ON is a co-sponsor of this year’s Energy Event and Graham Bartlett, Managing Director of E.ON Energy Solutions explains why: “Co-sponsoring The Energy Event gives E.ON the opportunity to demonstrate its support for British industry and its commitment to cleaner and better energy for UK industry. It also gives us an opportunity to meet with business leaders to discuss the energy issues that affect us all, as well as to listen to their concerns. It’s a great forum to enable us to get closer to our customers and to energy consultants”.
