The Future of Energy Conference and Exhibition
The Future of Energy Conference and Exhibition will examine Government policy and the direction that the UK as a nation must take to ensure a secure and stable energy supply, whilst asking how we can create a variable energy mix that incorporates the latest technology to guarantee demand will be met.
The conference will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss and examine how the energy sector is addressing the key issues that it faces through greater investment and increased collaboration with the aim of ensuring that the UK and the rest of the world has a promising future. It will investigate the key initiatives and drivers and through discussion and debate aim to dissect what the future holds across the energy sector.

Oil and gas reserves are declining but the UK must have safe, secure and future-proof supplies of energy that are available to all. Through international relations and supporting the energy industry, the Government will ensure a continuous supply of energy for the UK. The Future of Energy Conference and Exhibition will discuss and debate how the UK can deliver a secure energy supply with a low carbon output, and how we can bring about the relevant investment to make this happen. Through a combination of high level keynotes and a number of leading case studies, delegates will hear a number of different perspectives and best practice case studies in regards to what the future of energy holds.
Energy is at the forefront of the global political agenda. Rising costs and demand are compelling organisations to improve sustainability and put customers at the heart of strategy. If we are to overcome the dual challenges of climate change and energy security, we require a radical shift in how we generate, distribute, store and use energy. This event will bring senior figures together to address issues as diverse as investment in new generation, energy efficiency and smart metering.
The Importance of Innovation
Innovation often leads to new technologies, new jobs and new opportunities. Around 70% of our future economic growth is expected to come from innovation and the low carbon sector is set to make a major contribution to this. New and improved low carbon technologies are essential to reduce the cost of energy for hard-pressed consumers. Innovation here in the UK could help our companies secure a large share of the global market. And that market for low carbon goods and services is potentially huge.
By targeting our innovation support and fulfilling our innovation goals we could save the UK over £100 billion in energy costs to 2050. For example, targeted innovation in energy efficiency alone could lead to savings worth up to £2,500 for each UK household and business up to 2050. That is enough to build 14,000 community hospitals or over 5,000 new schools. That same investment could generate UK-based business activity contributing tens of billions of pounds to GDP over the same period.
The 2009 Renewable Energy Directive set a target for the UK to achieve 15% (up from 3%) of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. The Government acknowledged that to meet this target the UK needs to change the way energy is generated and used for electricity, heat and transport.
As the Government works towards the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% in 2050, the Future of Energy Conference will explore the long-term solutions for energy supply in a carbon constrained economy and the relevant impacts on energy suppliers, industry, local authorities and consumers.
