I’m delighted to say that Energy Live 2014 is on its way. Our flagship conference will take place this year on November 6th at London’s Barbican Centre in the City. We have a bigger venue and expect 900 visitors!
Our theme this year is “the Politics of Power” which seems appropriate, as we will be only six months away from the General Election at the time of the conference. So what does that mean? Well politics is both a big “P” and a small “p”, as much about what happens in the Palace of Westminster, as what happens in your street and your community.
So we will discuss the big issues around regulation and policy; ESOS, EMR, the Ofgem Code of Conduct, what the 2015 election will mean for energy and if by then we have an independent Scotland, what that means for oil and gas and wider energy issues.
But we will also talk about the effect energy has on our communities, the impact of bills, energy saving and solutions, new energy sources like fracking and how to cope with changes and the implications of policy on our businesses and homes.
This year we will also celebrate the world of energy. Like us, you must be fed up of the energy sector being seen in the same vein as bankers. Is the sector really that bad? Full of fat cats, evil corporations and dodgy salespeople? We don’t think so and we will prove it doesn’t warrant the poor headlines and public vilification it often receives.
If you have been to an Energy Live event before you know we like to do things with our unique style, bringing passion and energy to ensure a day you’ll remember!
Once again we will have an energy experts bar – so you can speed date with an expert that can help solve your energy issue – an idea so good other conferences have started copying it, but you know ELN will provide you the best in the business! Our case study cinema returns so you can see what others are doing and learn from their experiences.
And we will have some fantastic new features to make it the conference of 2014:
If you are an energy end user you can come for free this year but you need to apply for a ticket asap. We will be giving away a set number of free passes and when they are gone, they’re gone, so don’t delay. To see if you qualify for the free ticket contact Richard McFarlane or call him on 07805 540145.
We will be selling tickets to vendors and other interested parties and there are a limited number of sponsorship slots available, so if you are interested in meeting 900 of the biggest names in the energy industry and showing them your products and services drop, our commercial team a line. Contact Geoff or Chris to ensure you are there.
Finally this year we will be providing you all the information you need via an Energy Live 2014 conference app. We will let you know when it’s released so make sure you download it so you can keep up to date with all that’s happening around the conference.
I look forward to seeing you in London this November.
