The Energy Insight conference aims to provide directors, energy procurement specialists and those at major energy user organisations with an insight into the UK energy market. The conference, which consists of two half day sessions, will be held at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham on the 8/9th September, alongside the Energy Event.
Chaired on both days by Jeremy Nicholson, Director, Energy Intensive Users’ Group (EIUG) the headline topic on the first day of the conference is ‘The Energy Retail Agenda’. This session will discuss energy generation and consumption and assist in understanding energy policy, combating volatility and creating market opportunities.
On day one, Director of Network Operations for National Grid, Chris Train will present a paper entitled: ‘Concerns over the security of supply – A burden of the times or not as bad as everyone makes out?’ which will cover how energy generation and storage capacity across the UK has changed over the last decade and whether Liquefied Natural Gas is a global solution for capacity constraints.
A speaker from Ofgem will also put ‘The UK Winter in Perspective’ and highlight how other EU Member States affect each other when things get tight.
Another paper to be delivered is entitled ‘Procurement and you: Credit risk and market constraints’ and will cover trading opportunities in the energy retail market and life as an energy retailer, looking at cost, competition and consumers.
The headline topic for the second day of the conference is ‘The Climate Agenda’. As well as asking if government targets, business compliance and a healthier environment are realistically achievable, a keynote speech will be delivered by Chairman of Shell UK Ltd and President of the Energy Institute, James Smith, which is entitled ‘Stepping up to the Energy Challenge’.
This will be supplemented with a presentation from Senior Policy Advisor on Climate Change for the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Emma Wild on ‘Implementing initiatives: Costs and benefits of carbon reduction programmes’.
The sessions on both days are brought to a close with a case study presented by a practitioner from within the industry. On the first day the case study will demonstrate what tools and support the energy procurement professional of the 21st Century needs while on day two the case study will look at integrating climate policy into an overall business energy strategy.
