Economist Conferences brings you their third annual UK Energy Summit in May. With over 150 of the country’s top policy makers, industry executives and influential thinkers attending it will be a must attend event for anyone in the energy sector.

An estimated investment of £200bn is needed by 2020 to fund the building of an infrastructure that will securely deliver low-carbon energy at affordable prices. Policy decisions that are taken now will heavily impact for decades to come.

Join discussions on how the UK’s vision for the energy sector is unfolding and what further steps are required to achieve a secure, low-carbon economy. The summit will further look at global trends impacting on the UK’s energy security, and what long term strategies are required to keep the lights on and transport on the move in the UK. Questions will be posed about how energy companies can persuade consumers to think differently and change their behaviours to conserve energy. Current policy recommendations will be looked at and whether they are far-reaching enough to make a real difference.

Influential thinkers inspiring the debate will include the chair Roger Harrabin, Faith Birol, Tony Cocker, Tim Yeo MP, Vincent de Rivaz, Volker Beckers and David Kennedy.

With 96% of last year’s attendees recommending the event to a colleague, it is an event you won’t want to miss. To book your place visit: https://www.economistconferences.co.uk/event/uk-energy-summit-2012/5964
