The Energy Event will help to change the way we think about energy consumption

27 June 2012

There will be high profile industry (and celebrity!) speakers as well as informative presentations, interaction and vital debate and over 150 exhibitors – in fact it’s going to be the biggest Energy Event yet.

Facilities specialists who want to learn all they can about efficient, sustainable energy use should go The Energy Event 2012, 11-12 September.

Central to this year’s show is the world class conference programme which will deliver market insight and thought leadership from speakers such as Philip Lowe, Director General for Energy at The European Commission; special correspondent at ITV News, Daisy McAndrew; particle physicist and television presenter Professor Brian Cox; former New Labour director of communications and strategy Alastair Campbell, and Professor of Forecasting and Innovation James Woudhuysen. The event will also be a hub of learning, networking and business opportunities, with global brands delivering their own case studies and seminars. The Energy Event is partnered with ESTA, MEUC, Energy Institute, GAMBICA, BCAS, Waterwise and the BCIA, and the sessions are completely free and CPD certified, making it a cost effective way to continue professional development.

Visitors will benefit from over 150 exhibitors including the major UK’s key management and efficiency product manufacturers, energy suppliers and service providers all under one roof. One exhibitor among the 150 at this year’s event, t-mac technologies, will be demonstrating how it helped Hammonds furniture store reduce its utility expenditure by 10-20 per cent by using a building energy management system (BEMS). And security and facilities group G4S adopted green and ecological initiatives by switching over to Mitsubishi Electric Jet Towel hand dryers, which reduce drying time by about one-tenth - an energy saving that paid for the change in just months.

In the four theatres:
The Energy Insight Conference is the central feature of the show, to be chaired on the first day by Daisy McAndrew, and will debate the issues that are crucial to energy purchasers, including carbon reduction policies. Philip Lowe, Director General - Energy at the European Commission, will talk about the investment needed to meet European electricity demand; Volker Beckers, CEO of RWE npower, will cover the future of energy use in the UK, and Chris Train of the National Grid will discuss low carbon energy sources.
The afternoon sessions are curated by the Major Energy Users’ Council and will discuss issues such as Britain’s decarbonisation and the role and effect of bureaucracy on energy efficiency.

The Energy Information Theatre is a top resource for managers and experts in energy, environment, facilities and property management. It is packed with case studies and practical advice for reducing energy consumption, tackling buildings efficiency, controls and benchmarking, organisational change and incentives. The theatre’s keynote speakers, who will concentrate on the Government’s approach to energy efficiency and the likely direction of future legislation, include: Trevor Hutchings, Head of Strategy and Delivery, Energy Efficiency Deployment Office at DECC; Chris Pook, Deputy Director Green Economy, Department of Business Innovation and Skills, and Phil Wynn Owen, Director General, International Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, DECC.
James Woudhuysen, Professor of Forecasting and Innovation at De Montfort University, will express his frank view of the future of energy, the fallacy of smart meters and green jobs – and why subsidies don’t work!

The ESTA Theatre is hosted by the Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA). The seminars are designed for energy managers, and will offer basic information on principles, policy issues and effective implementation.
The Hosted Content Theatre will feature presentations hosted by Waterwise and npower among others. Seminars will include topics covering water efficiency and procurement strategies as well as a live energy debate.

The Energy Event 2012’s is sponsored by BIU, Haven Power, M&C Energy Group and Dong Energy.
