The Energyst Theatre

Delivering Net Zero:

Heat | Power | Transport

Bringing energy strategies & technologies together to decarbonise our economy

We will cover key challenges, solutions and opportunities across the energy spectrum: Power, gas, heat, carbon, efficiency and finance.  Keynote speakers, expert insight, panel discussions, best practice, case studies, knowledge sharing and road-mapping.

ICON

Workshops, talks and ways to connect

ICON will provide an eclectic programme of entertaining and enlightening content. This space for energy and water management and procurement leaders provides a platform for upbeat, frank and open discussion on the latest demand-side developments within the context of utility management, no topic is off-limits.

The layout of the theatre, the seating arrangements and the hosting style will all be carefully curated to encourage maximum participation and audience engagement. We are here to ignite passion back into utility education.

With market insecurity, socio-political factors and rapid technological development strongly impacting businesses, this theatre addresses energy managers’ and buyers’ primary concerns through keynote TED-style talks, targeted workshops, plenty of debates and top-level discussion.

The EV Theatre

(co-located sister EV event)

Bringing electrification strategies & technologies together to decarbonise the road to Net Zero

We will cover everything EV: Electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, integrated energy solutions, smart charging, vehicle to grid, finance and funding. Keynote speakers, expert insight, panel discussions, best practice, case studies, knowledge sharing and road-mapping.

2019 – Day 1 – Energy Convergence

09:45 – 10:20

Energy outlook: The impact of incoming change

How the shifting policy and regulatory landscape will affect your energy strategy – consumption, generation and flexibility.

10:40 – 11:15

Is onsite generation an effective strategy?

To be a prosumer or not? How much generation should you have onsite, how best to use it, where PPAs can add benefits and will storage enable better returns?

Energy-as-a-service: What’s working and what’s not?

Are Esco models evolving, is the Nirvana of energy-as-a-service any closer to reality?

Session will outline where Esco/service models are delivering benefits, where hurdles remain, and the implications of the end of support mechanisms (e.g. RHI)

Convergence – case studies in combined energy strategies

We take a look at two end-user case studies that look at an integrated approach to energy and carbon management.
Sixt, the car rental firm, has moved from what was a simple procurement contract with its energy consultant to looking across its whole portfolio for opportunities. These include energy reduction, flexibility and onsite generation to name just a little of what is being considered in its broader energy strategy.

BankEnergi brings together national experts with local organisations to create a local energy market on the London South Bank. Part funded by the UK Government’s InnovateUK programme, the project will identify ways of reducing energy demand, generating local energy, and improving local air quality. It is also setting up a local balancing mechanism unit to help grid system operators manage their demand and supply profiles more accurately. These should enable local bodies to save up to 20% from their fuel bills through smarter use of energy assets and a local energy trading scheme.

Energy efficiency rebooted

As the most cost effective method of saving money and lowering carbon emissions, how you increase the adoption of energy efficiency?

Potential options include making it a dynamic tradable resource, finance it more effectively, link a building’s actual energy performance to financial incentives?
