    Technology costs are tumbling, green policy is becoming more progressive, and stakeholders are keeping a keen eye on your sustainability credentials – NOW is the time to invest in onsite clean energy systems. But where should you start? This opening session will explore what success looks like by hearing from some of the leaders of the renewables revolution.
  2. Energy Innovation Theatre
    In a matter of years, demand response has evolved from a curious concept to a vital catalyst of Britain’s smart energy transformation. But shifting power during peak periods is not without its challenges, and the market remains a relatively complex one for energy managers. This session will hear from the experts to help you cut through that complexity and showcase some leading business examples of demand-response best-practice.
