The head of the trade body for the UK’s energy industry is joining the expert line-up at the second Energy Live conference held later this year.
Angela Knight will draw on her role as the Chief Executive of Energy UK and ex-Chief Executive of the British Bankers’ Association to coin a few insights into the power sector.
Quickly up to speed on the complexities of the energy industry since joining Energy UK last year, she has recently been supporting the role energy suppliers are playing in treating domestic and business customers fairly. The energy chief also defended them when they were attacked by MPs for making huge profits following gas and electricity price hikes.
She has a strong background in politics, while an MP for Erewash from 1992-1997 she was also Economic Secretary to the Treasury (1995-1997) and was also honoured with a CBE for services to the financial services industry in 2007.
Not afraid to speak her mind, she accused consumer groups of deceiving the public on price rises last year at Energy Live 2012 and called for the industry to be more open and let consumers and businesses know about the charges on energy bills.
If you’ve got any questions for Ms Knight or want to know more about what suppliers have in store for consumers, why not come to the Energy Live 2013 conference being held at the London Film Museum in Covent Garden on 7th November.
