The last 18 months have been tough and the Energy Industry has been there to make sure essential services have been available and continued to run. Energy is important and the people who make up the sector continue to make a difference. Energy consultants play a very important role to make the sector and business tick.

Now is the time to get business back together, learning from one another, swapping ideas and tips. On 1st December at the IET in London, we will run the Energy Live Consultancy Conference (ELCC)  live and follow it in the evening with TELCA, the award-winning event and programme which highlights the best in energy consultants. We want to highlight how you have looked after your customers and your colleagues.

09:00 – 15:30 – Join us for The Energy Live Consultancy Conference at the IET, London: Savoy Place.

Our headline speaker is Jonathan Brearley, Ofgem’s Chief Executive.

How will TPIs (and suppliers) need to evolve to survive?

In this session we will discuss how the energy sector has presented many challenges to both TPI’s and Suppliers over the last two years. With volatile markets, changing cost structures and the drive towards transparency, there is now a necessity to diversify and roll out additional service lines across any existing client base. This could either be seen as a mouth-watering prospect to maximise revenue and improve customer adhesion or a very daunting task. At Pozitive Energy we are continually looking at how we can support our partners in this journey by considering general business requirements and utilising technology to make all interactions as simple as possible. Is it true to say that only the fittest will survive?

Speaker: Mark Metcalfe, Director (Power), Pozitive Energy
