Weather data is a critical component of a E&U business and impacts everything from the price of electricity and the load forecast to the performance of infrastructure and the ability to anticipate and respond to outages. When using this data seamlessly combined with multiple types of analytical expertise it can drive smarter insights at scale and in real time. When […]
Energy use and our environment are inexorably linked. No matter how hard we try, using innovative efficient new luminaire designs and controls, an installation will always have a carbon footprint. But, how much energy is used in the production of luminaires adding to that carbon footprint? One light can indirectly produce one tonne of CO2 per annum from its energy […]

We will also in this session hear about related standards […]
With rapid growth in EV numbers for both private users and fleet operators, energy distribution networks are under considerable pressure. The development of charging infrastructure has to keep up with growing vehicle numbers for confidence to be maintained. An immediate challenge is faced by fleet operators needing to charge numbers of vehicles in single locations. Energy storage is a tool […]
The energy transition is ushering in a new energy landscape, with energy set to be more democratic, decentralised and digitalised than ever before. To negotiate this successfully and take advantage of all of the opportunities that the energy transition provides, businesses need to put in place strategies that will enable their energy profile to thrive both now and in the […]

Future Flexibility Markets – removing barriers and creating opportunity to drive zero-carbon operation
As the UK moves to a low-carbon economy, the way we operate the electricity system is evolving. A smart, flexible system that makes the best use of all the energy resources available will enable us to meet our customers’ needs in a balanced, efficient and economical way. Our aim is to create balancing services markets that meet our changing system […]

This seminar will cover: What the GLA & TfL are doing about Climate Change at a wider level; […]
This session will offer an overview of the role the ‘Prosumer’ will have in the decentralisation of energy generation, the technologies involved and the benefits to be had. This includes: creating a stable electricity grid, un-interrupted power to homes, businesses and commercial activity and reducing the national carbon footprint- helping the transition to a zero carbon future.
The word Smart is likely now the most used sales pitch for anything relating to a building. We are told nearly everything we buy has a smart aspect, whether this is a new TV, a heating system, a washing machine or a car. So what actually is smart? For many years, we as Energy Management professionals have been trying to […]
What does being a zero-carbon business actually look like and what are the drivers and challenges businesses are likely to face on the road to achieving a zero-carbon status? This session will talk about the standards and accreditations that can be achieved and how organisations can develop a roadmap for their transition to carbon neutrality.
The session explores the different paths that lead to a career in energy management and what those who have chosen this rewarding career found helpful in their career progression.
With the capacity market recently clearing at 77p/kW there are many market players wondering how they can monetise their assets in a market which only appears to be delivering diminishing returns – so what next? The very need for mechanisms such as the capacity market has derived from the increase in renewables on grid, which in turn has lead to […]
How better building management and a data-led approach enabled LSH and 4D Monitoring to deliver portfolio-wide energy savings and drive down operational costs. In 2017, Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) partnered with 4D Monitoring to deploy smart building technology across its managed property portfolio, in order to reduce energy consumption and increase operating efficiencies. The scheme has been driven by LSH […]
Cooling is central to health, prosperity and recreation, however most cooling is currently energy intensive and uses highly polluting F-gases. As the population continues to boom, the planet warms and incomes rise, the demand for cooling is ever-increasing. In this session, we’ll hear from leading experts on the growing challenge and the solutions both globally and here in the UK. […]

Lighting remains a low-hanging fruit to deliver financial and environmental benefits to businesses”
It’s relatively easy to do undertake an energy audit, but doing it in a way that makes a lasting impact on the energy consumption performance of an organisation, is a much bigger challenge. In this “master class”, I will share the experience that I gained over the last 15+ years undertaking energy audits and how these audits fit into the […]
Recent changes in regulation mean that battery storage will be able to be metered separately to the MPAN, boundary meter. This will allow trading the services storage can supply, including grid leveling services, on a new marketplace. This session will explore the changes and how your sites could turn storage into a profit center.
In this session Matthew Brander will provide perspectives into some possible shortcomings with leading carbon standards – with renewable energy purchasing and accounting for bioenergy providing two example topics and illustrations. Key considerations are additionality, and ensuring corporate greenhouse gas accounts are transparent, accurate and relevant to decision making.
The Corporate PPA market is growing, with total of 13.4 GW of Corporate PPAs signed globally in 2018 (more than double the previous year). This trend is set to continue as corporations continue to be increasingly conscious about managing their energy needs and procuring electricity directly from renewable sources to lower their carbon footprint. This session will focus on the […]
The net-zero era is upon us. Climate anxiety has increased, school children and employees are compelled to strike and, more than ever, global governments are under scrutiny for their environmental and energy policies. In this session, Mark Davis discusses one of the key technologies required to achieve net-zero: demand response. We’ll look at the system as it stands today, and […]
