The UK’s Energy Transition is Here: How Can Energy Innovation Futureproof your Business?

Category: , ,

In this session Richard will talk through the key energy technologies impacting UK businesses and why your business should be embracing change. With non-energy costs continuing on an upward trend and policy regulating our future emissions, now is the time to take action. In January 2017, as part of its commitment to reduce industrial energy costs and decarbonise the UK economy, the Government committed £28 million to energy innovation projects. That, and many other statistics show just how fast the pace of innovation is moving at. Ofgem figures suggest innovation by energy networks has already enabled close to £1bn of cost savings between now and 2023. Clearly then, innovation can mean huge wins for business. But, the Grantham Institute (GI) suggests 13 of the UK's 15 largest industrial sectors are less effective than global competitors at low carbon innovation.

The Essential Role of Flexibility in our Energy Future

Category:

As our energy infrastructure evolves, the role of the consumer is also undergoing a dramatic shift. No longer simply energy users, the new energy ‘pro-sumer’ has a part to play in ensuring the security, sustainability and cost-efficiency of our energy system. For those who engage, rewards are available and often significant.

This session will begin by briefly examining the issues driving change in the energy marketplace, before examining the flexibility options available. He will explore how obstacles to flexibility can be overcome and how getting involved can help businesses unlock real value. The session will provide real-life case studies and explore the commercial benefit of different types of flexible energy management, which forward-facing businesses are already using to cut costs and create brand new revenue streams.

This session will also provide insight into the innovation that is enabling change in the energy industry and look at how investment by energy companies can help businesses get onboard and become a part of a better, greener energy future.
