Energy Convergence Conference

Energy Convergence


Bringing energy strategies & technologies together for best results

The headline conference, Energy Convergence, will centre on how energy is converging across efficiency, sustainability, procurement and flexibility, exploring the benefits end-users could reap through tactical partnerships, novel strategies and new technology.

The crux of the sessions is the debate that deliberates the most effective approach to managing energy in an energy market where disciplines are converging changing old methodologies. Each session has a chair and 3 to 5 panellists. An independent keynote speaker sets the scene, followed by a case study showing that this can happen now and isn’t just a pipe dream. Together these will last about 15 -20 minutes framing the debate that will follow.

 

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.

Speaker

Theatre : Energy Convergence

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?

Speaker

Theatre : Energy Convergence

11:30 – 12:05

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)

13:00 – 13:35

Procurement – Appetite for disruption?

Have the fundamentals of buying power and gas actually shifted?

How should purchasing take account of  flexibility?

What are the no-regrets options in volatile times?

14:10 – 14:45

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?

Speaker

Day 2 – Energy Convergence

09:45 – 10:20

Harnessing data to unlock energy savings

How energy managers with tough challenges extract the signal from noise to deliver substantial energy benefit.

Speaker

Theatre : Energy Convergence

10:40 – 11:15

Maximising onsite generation, storage and flexibility

How shifting markets affect flexibility strategies and how businesses can maximise the value of their generation and consumption patterns.

Speaker

Theatre : Energy Convergence

11:30 – 12:05

Powershift: The impact of EVs on your energy strategy

The roadmap from early adoption and installation of EV charging infrastructure through smart charging and vehicle to grid services. And why businesses should think about EVs sooner rather than later.

Copies of Energyst Media’s new EV Report will also be made available.

Speaker

Theatre : Energy Convergence

13:00 – 13:35

2019: The year of the PPA

Are PPAs finally coming of age; are buyers and sellers on the same page; and what are the emerging opportunities to lock in clean power?
