So yesterday Ed Miliband and Labour said the energy markets were so badly run they needed a kick. A serious kick.
Should they come to power in May 2015, Miliband’s future Labour Government is determined to interfere and freeze energy prices until the start of 2017. That’s one way to calm the markets.
Another is to get the best advice going on why prices fluctuate so much by coming to our conference Energy Live 2013.
Why is it that a decision made in Japan regarding nuclear power sends our gas prices up? How come what the Norwegians do affects us so drastically and are we forever having to look to the middle east for answers when it comes to whether we will pay more or less for oil?
All the answers will be revealed on November 7th, when we start the day with a special session called “Market Madness” with four specialists from across industry. They talk straight, they’ll argue, they may even agree! One thing is for sure, you will get the best perspective on the markets and what drives them.
We’re delighted to say (pictured) Magali Hodgson from npower, Matt Smith from the US offices of Schneider Electric, Alex Barnes from Gazprom M&T and Andrew Horstead of Utilyx will make up our auspicious panel. Between them we will get a complete picture of the UK energy markets and how they operate.
Ever wondered how a trade works? Unsure of your prompt from your curve? Looking for help with herding bulls or juggling bears? The answers are all there, so come along and get the best perspective you’ll find on the energy markets and how to read them. You never know what you’ll discover, we might even invite Ed along too….
