Major energy panel to address challenges of coping with growing energy demand

Representatives from some of the most influential energy organisations in the UK are to debate one of the biggest issues facing the country’s businesses today; a low carbon economy.

The panel discussion will be part of a world class conference programme at The Energy Event, which is to be held on 11-12 September at the NEC in Birmingham. ‘How is the UK set to cope with demand and current thinking on low carbon energy sources?’ will be debated by industry experts such as Robert Sorrell (Vice President of public partnerships at BP), Chris Train (Network Operations Director at the National Grid), Mike Hogg (Managing Director of DONG Energy Sales), George Day (Strategy Director of economics at ETI), and Peter Bennell (CEO of Haven Power).

The session will provide a forum on which members of the audience will be able to engage directly with the panel and receive expert advice on overcoming the potential challenges of growing demand for energy and carbon reduction programmes. The session forms part of a conference programme that has been created in association with a number of eminent industry bodies, including The Energy Institute, Energy Services and Technology Association (ESTA), Major Energy Users’ Council (MEUC), Waterwise, GAMBICA, British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA), and Water Technology List (WTL).

The event organisers, alongside the show’s sponsors and partners, are keen to ensure a steady flow of innovation and inspiration for professionals concerned with energy efficiency, management and procurement. BIU, Dong Energy, Haven Power and M&C Energy Group are sponsors of the show while The Energy Brokers and Nord Pool Spot are sponsors of the central theatre on the show floor; Energy Insight Conference.

Dan Thurlow, Event Director of The Energy Event, said: “The fact that the conference sessions are free to attend, CPD-certified and presented by top-level experts and end users means that visitors will get great value from just a day or so out of the office. The practical case studies of successfully run projects will not only help visitors to gain an insight into cutting edge solutions and practices but will also inspire them to choose their own entry point into low carbon energy management.”

The cornerstone of this year’s event will be the four CPD-certified conference theatres featuring more than 70 speakers, including Philip Lowe (Director General of Energy at the European Commission), Volker Beckers (CEO of RWE npower) and Chris Train of the National Grid.

Answering the most challenging questions about the new generation of energy sources and the universe, and politics, spin, and communications strategy are Professor Brian Cox and Alastair Campbell. The afternoon sessions are curated by the Major Energy Users’ Council and will include discussions about Britain’s decarbonisation and the role and effect of bureaucracy on energy efficiency.

The exhibition will sit alongside two other events; The Renewables Event (a new event showcasing renewable energy technologies for onsite energy generation) and RWM in partnership with CIWM. Between them, they will cater to the needs of 20,000 professionals from across the public, industrial and commercial sectors.
