Energy Theatre
  1. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    With reports confirming we are now off-track to meet our national emissions targets in the 2020s and 2030s, is the UK Government’s Clean Growth Strategy encouraging the right level of business action? Can legislative frameworks and schemes such as ESOS Phase 2, Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting and the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund help to pull us back on-track?

    Chair: Frank Aaskov, Senior energy and environment policy advisor, EEF

  2. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    Decarbonisation, decentralisation, digitisation and democratisation are together changing the way that energy is generated and used. Businesses now have more power than ever before in the energy market – and this session is all about seizing the opportunity to achieve a sustainable energy future, today.

    Chair: Leonie Greene, Director, Solar Trade Association

  3. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    Aligning energy reduction targets with individuals’ motivations and behaviours is the holy grail for energy managers – but it is far more easily said than done. How can we make energy efficiency second-nature for employees? And, as new data management systems and technologies minimise the need for human intervention, will we need to change behaviours at all?

    Chair: Lesley Rudd, Chief executive, Sustainable Energy Association

  4. Energy Theatre
    60 mins

    The built environment is at the heart of our economic growth, but to achieve good development on a planet stressed by climate change and diminishing natural resources, our buildings must be low-carbon and ultra-efficient. This session will hear from the businesses that are leading the green building movement.

    Session chair: Munish Datta, Senior consultant, UK Green Building Council (UKGBC)

  5. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    From artificial intelligence and cloud-based systems through to the Internet of Things and building information modelling – the world of energy data is undergoing a huge transformation. This session will explore how energy managers can use data to drive down usage, increase efficiencies, and unlock new revenue-driving opportunities.

    Chair: Professor Phil Hart, Director of energy and power, Cranfield University

Innovation Theatre
  1. Innovation Theatre
    60 mins

    Innovation isn’t just about deploying new technologies, it’s about developing new ways of thinking, fostering creativity and embracing disruption.

    Chair: Harsh Pershad, Senior innovation lead (energy), UKRI INNOVATEUK

  4. Innovation Theatre
    75 mins

    At an edie Energy Leaders Club event late last year, former National Grid boss Steve Holliday championed the role that businesses and innovators have played in igniting a "chaotic revolution" in the energy sector – whether that be through decentralisation, smart grid technologies or clean energy systems. In this session, we hear from three of those energy innovation champions...

    Chair: Harsh Pershad, Senior innovation lead (energy), UKRI INNOVATEUK

Sustainability Keynote Theatre
  1. Sustainability Keynote Theatre
    60 mins
    Leadership in the post-CSR era

    As climate-related impact and social well-being become more business critical, some organisations in the vanguard of sustainability are ready to push through to a “post-CSR” era, where sustainability isn’t a siloed operation of the business. This podcast episode will hear from the sustainability leads across a range of companies as part of a small roundtable discussion on embedding sustainability across the business.
Energy Theatre
  1. Energy Theatre

    Chair: Nick Turton, External affairs director, Energy Institute 

  2. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    Renewable energy costs are tumbling and new approaches to energy management such as battery storage are offering new ways for organisations to build resilience whilst cutting costs and increasing revenues. This session gives you everything you need to know about renewable energy and battery storage to achieve clean growth.

    Chair: Joanna Wade, Deputy director, The Association for Decentralised Energy 

  3. Energy Theatre
    75 mins

    Chair: Emily Auckland, Network director & co-chair, UKSSD

Workshops

Workshop 1
  1. Big energy data is here to stay. From heating and cooling through to telephones and lifts, the data an organisation can collect from its energy consumption can be incredibly powerful – but only if its monitored, measured and acted upon correctly.

    Reserve your place

  2. It’s one of the most talked-about topics in the world of energy management, but is energy storage ready to move from ‘innovation’ to mainstream technology? What are the barriers to mass deployment of battery systems? How can storage systems be effectively paired with renewable energy technologies? And how can an energy manager convince others in their organisation of the values of storage?

    Reserve your place

  3. Whether it’s demand response, battery storage or distributed generation, business now have access to multiple energy solutions that can bring significant operational, financial and environmental rewards. But are these solutions currently viable? What are the major obstacles preventing organisations from adopting smart-grid technologies; and how can those obstacles be overcome?

    Reserve your place

  4. It is perhaps the biggest challenge facing the edie Live audience today: how can you increase your sphere of influence and drive engagement on sustainability and energy – from the boardroom to the people on the shop floor?

    Reserve your place

Workshop 2
  1. With levels of trust in government and business in sharp decline, and global megatrends increasingly impacting security of supply, the need to adopt transparent, sustainable and resilient supply chains has never been more important.
