Energy Management Conference 2018
“We’re serious about increasing our efficiency. Our Paris obligations represent an enormous challenge, they are also an opportunity in which energy efficiency can play a very significant role.” - Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Energy Minister
By signing up to the Paris Agreement, the UK has committed to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable energy use. While emissions in 2015 were 38% lower than they were in 1990, there is still a significant amount of work to be done. Poor energy management continues to cost the Government, the private sector and households billions of pounds. With demand predicted to grow year-on-year, energy firms are now looking to invest heavily in renewables and carbon capture technology. Innovations such as smart meters and advances in energy storage are already helping suppliers and consumers manage their energy use more effectively.
Join us for the Energy Management Conference 2018 where expert speakers will explain the latest developments in the industry and how Government policy will help shape the future. Learn how your organisation can improve its energy management, how suppliers can cope with growing demand and how new technology can make our homes and business more efficient.
