The A-Z of energy strategy: What you will learn this week


The Energyst Event, takes place Wednesday and Thursday this week in Birmingham. Here’s why you should register to attend the free conference and exhibition:

The ADE, Energy Institute, Haven Power and LCP will outline what’s coming down the track from an energy perspective – and how this will impact your energy strategy.

ABB, Pöyry, National Grid ESO and Ylem Energy will discuss opportunities for prosumer strategies and flexibility.

Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Amber Energy and Edgbaston will examine what’s working – and what’s not – around energy-as-a-service.

Car rental firm Sixt will detail its converged energy strategy – across energy procurement, efficiency and demand reduction, to flexibility and onsite generation.

Bank Energi will highlight its work to build a local energy market on London’s South Bank.

Energy Pro and Tesco will outline how energy efficiency is evolving – and the resource it could ultimately become.

King’s College London, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (Beis), Central England Co-operative and ZTP will look at how to unlock energy savings by harnessing data.

EDF Energy, Piclo, SSEN and Ecotricity will outline how to maximise opportunity from onsite generation, storage and flexibility within a changing environment.

Marston’s, Western Power Distribution, Arup and Cenex will discuss opportunities and challenges around electric vehicles, smart charging and vehicle-to-grid.

Cornwall Insight, Northumbrian Water and Squeaky Energy will provide insight into power purchase agreements – and why businesses should consider them as part of an optimal energy strategy.

All seminar sessions are CPD-accredited, so delegates that attend can notch up CPD points and continue their professional development.

Icon founder and director, Georgina Penfold

Meanwhile, a fringe event, or ‘unconference’ organised by the Industrial and Commercial Operators Network (Icon), offers an opportunity to discuss all key energy topics in a less formal setting.

Icon’s sessions cover everything from how to read an energy bill, calculating RoI from energy efficiency, how to get the board on board, a debate on whether anyone actually needs an energy broker, how to demystify demand-side response, Esos and energy reporting, the impact of incoming charging regime change, how businesses can save the planet – and a pre-pub quiz.
