Today is our third birthday! Hooray I hear you cry!
Yes we feel that way too. The past year has been a great one for us and the success of our first conference, Energy Live 2012 propelled us a long way.
To have such auspicious speakers as Ed Davey and the bosses of Big 6 suppliers as well as Angela Knight and many others addressing our conference showed that we are reaching the influencers in this sector.
But it wouldn’t have been anything without our audience made up of you our dear readers. Many thanks to you all, for coming to our conference and most recently supporting The Energy Live Consultancy Awards (TELCA), our first foray into an awards programme.
We also won the Best Journalism prize at the Scottish Green Energy Awards in December and have now firmly established ourselves as a trusted Google news site.
We aim to continue to build on our growing reputation as the leading independent publishers covering UK energy.
First up of course, we have TELCA night on June 27th. This week we announced the shortlist of nominated consultancies and already there is a great buzz of anticipation ahead of the final judging. Best of luck to all who got through. We hope you’ll really enjoy the night and it’s just the first of many big things we have planned over the coming year.
By our next birthday we will have changed this website so get prepared for a new look and plenty of new features including a chance for you to post your events and news directly to the site. We will bring you more content and more learning as we know from feedback many of you would like that service.
This November 7th we will also be staging Energy Live 2013 at the prestigious London Film Museum in Covent Garden and I am delighted to announce that Ed Davey will once again be giving a headline speech and answering your questions. This year the event will be very different and very exclusive with only 400 places, so once we launch the conference website, make sure you register for your place as they will go fast!
And of course more than anything we will be bringing you the news. Vicky and Priyanka have done a stirling job this past year and our brand of comprehensive but clear, digestible journalism has struck a chord with many of you.
Just this week we broke the exclusive story about smart meter roll back. We will endeavour to do more of that, breaking stories, bringing you fantastic high quality TV reports and features, blogs and of course holding those in power to account.
All of this we will do, covering all views from the world of energy. We are independent, we make no judgement calls and we listen to all views. We want to grow even more this year and that depends on you, tell us what you want, send us stories and call our newsdesk.
If you are an energy manager, buyer, supplier, energy campaigner, academic, consultant or simply just interested in energy I hope you will continue to turn to ELN to keep you informed.
Thanks from all the ELN team for supporting us and we promise to keep bringing you the news that matters.
