The Energy Event is one of Europe’s largest exhibitions and conferences focusing solely on energy procurement, management and efficiency and this year’s event is sponsored by the independent price risk management specialist M&C Energy Group. The event addresses the most current issues through its seminar programme as well as offering the chance for visitors to meet the biggest players in energy at the exhibition.
Each year the seminar programme provides discussions that are both relevant and authoritative on issues that really matter to the industry. The conference program is defined with two key groups: Firstly, there are the seminars delivered by the trade organisations; the Energy Services & Technology Association (ESTA), the Major Energy Users Council (MEUC), and the Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE).
And secondly, there is a series of seminars that fall under the Energy Insight conference banner, which consists of two half day sessions and provides directors, energy procurement specialists and those at major energy user organisations with an insight into the UK energy market. It brings together leading experts and commentators in the fields of economics, climate change, energy policy & security, nuclear industry, demand management and carbon reduction. Chaired on both days by director of the Energy Intensive Users’ Group (EIUG) Jeremy Nicholson, the headline topic on the first day of the Energy Insight conference is ‘The Energy Retail Agenda’ which will discuss energy generation and consumption and assist with understanding energy policy, combating volatility and creating market opportunities.
In addition to the seminar programme some of the biggest names in energy generation, energy procurement and all manner of energy management technology and service providers are exhibiting. Amongst the 120 exhibitors, core disciplines such as heating, compressed air, motors, drives, ventilating, air conditioning and lighting are well represented as are other technologies including voltage optimisation, thermography and water softeners. Exhibitors specialising in energy monitoring and targeting, energy procurement, consultancy and purchasing are also present.
