Conversations Leading to EMEX 2018

EMEX and its community is returning to the ExCeL Centre in London on 21st and 22nd November with a packed programme spread across 4 free-to-attend CPD-accredited seminar theatres.

EMEX is the must-attend energy management show that connects all energy users with leading experts, policy makers, suppliers and technical solutions.

I’m particularly proud that for the first time at EMEX, we are bringing together IEMA (Sustainability), BIFM (Facility), SOE (Operations) and the EMA (Energy Management) under one roof; four communities that have long been responsible for carbon and energy reduction in organisations.


New in 2018, The Sustainability & Climate Change Theatre, in partnership with IEMA, will host two days of informative and thought provoking seminars on key topics within the climate change and energy sector from industry experts. An added opportunity to learn about effective techniques and opportunities for change from leading professionals creating our low carbon sustainable future.

The exhibition and the seminar programme at EMEX will ensure that all practitioners of sound Energy Management will gain a greater understanding of their shared objectives, experiences and opportunities. In fact, together, they can ensure that all initiatives are complementary to all.

Have you got the skills, knowledge and experience to promote your energy efficiency projects within your organisation?

Content provided at EMEX is curated by the Energy Managers Association and its Board of major energy users and will include the opportunity for you to meet with top industry experts, peers and numerous leading suppliers that will unveil the latest technology and energy efficiency strategies available right now.

In addition to the technical expertise and data analysis, the role of the energy management team is evolving. Influencing and negotiation, communication and stakeholder engagement skills are becoming ever more important. EMEX seminars will cover a vast range of energy management strategies and experiences across various sectors, providing attendees with vital knowledge and new skills on how to build a robust business case for investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, and gain buy-in from senior stakeholders.

EMEX is a two-day event with over 130 exhibitors and 80 free-to-attend CPD-accredited seminars spread across 4 theatres:

  • Knowledge, Skills and Experience
  • Sustainability & Climate Change (new)
  • Facilities, Technology & Innovation
  • Renewable Energy, Supply and Storage

Does your business require flexibility in energy supply?

The UK’s energy mix is fast changing and demand reduction is a key area the government is very keen on. Demand Side Response (DSR) is a fast-growing market that enables National Grid to balance Britain’s electricity system cost-effectively, while our energy landscape changes rapidly. If your business has the flexibility to increase, decrease, or shift its electricity use, then the power is in your hands to take full advantage.

Back by popular demand, EMEX will feature the `Flexible Power Zone’ in partnership with Power Responsive (National Grid). This area is designed for the uninitiated to understand and evaluate this widely talked about opportunity. A dozen participating DSR and Battery Storage partners of National Grid will each give a presentation and be available to talk with you one on one.

It’s your opportunity to find a supplier that talks your language and makes sense for your business
and for Climate Change Agreements (CCAs) across businesses.

Participants confirmed so far in the Flexible Power Zone include E.ON Energy Solutions, EDF Energy, GridBeyond, Ørsted, Power Responsive, Ecotricity, Energy Pool, Flexitricity, KiWi Power.

Lord Redesdale, CEO at the EMA will explore how changes in the electricity codes are developing so trading energy demand reduction through the use of batteries can become a compelling investment for businesses with onsite renewables and balancing mechanism units.

Does your organisation keep on top of the coming taxes and regulations?

Gary Shanahan, Head of Business and Industrial Energy Efficiency, Tax and Reporting at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), will provide an update on business and industrial energy efficiency, including the development of a streamlined energy and carbon reporting, preparations for the next phase of the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and progress on the CCAs and the CRC Energy Efficiency Schemes.

Revised ISO 50001 energy management system was published on 21st August 2018. This mean that by 20 August 2021, all certificates shall be transitioned to ISO 50001:2018 to ensure continued validity. After the transition period, certificates to the 2011-edition cease to be valid.

While 3 years may seem like a long time, we know that the transition journey runs smoother when companies prepare and plan well to avoid a rushed process. We recommend getting familiar with the new version and identifying gaps sooner rather than later.

Attendees will not only get a brief on the updates key tools in ISO 50001 and how organisations can prepare, implement and transition to the new ISO 50001 but also hear how organisations approached the route to compliance in the past. Certification bodies, such as BSI, DNV GL, SGS and BRE will be at EMEX 2018 to help existing and new customers to transition or get certified to the revised standard.

With such diverse solutions, knowledge and expertise on offer, it is not surprising that thousands of small and medium businesses, as well as household names such as NHS, British Airways, Harrods, Hilton Worldwide, Boots, RBS, TATA, British Land, Ministry of Defence, AstraZeneca, Sodexo, Bellrock, BAE Systems, Co-Operative Group, Ofgem, Network Rail, MITIE, CBRE, Whitbread, Mitchells and Butlers, British Telecom, House of Fraser, and many county and city councils are already registered to attend.

EMEX takes place on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd November at ExCeL in London.
