Event: Innovations in Energy Management

The University of Salford will bring together expertise from around the UK on 23 March to explain the latest developments in energy management and how government policy will shape the future.

The University of Salford will bring together expertise from around the UK on 23 March to explain the latest developments in energy management and how government policy will shape the future.

With energy innovations such as smart meters and advances in energy storage helping more and more companies manage their energy use more effectively, the event will provide insight into the latest developments in energy policy and technology. 

Delegates will learn how their organisation can improve its energy management and cope with growing demand, and how new technologies can make homes and businesses more efficient.

Smart tech

The government has committed to ensure that every home and business will be offered a smart meter by 2020, with 4.6 million already installed across the UK.

It is hoped the roll-out will allow for the wider adoption of ‘demand-side response’ systems, which reward customers for changing when and how they use energy.

Meanwhile, viable long-term energy storage has the potential to completely revolutionise energy generation and usage.  

Energy demand

A radical transformation of the UK’s built environment is also required. Although changes to building regulations have seen new build properties become 30 per cent more efficient, there are nearly five million pre-war properties still in use. 

In addition, population growth means that global energy demand could increase by up to 61 per cent by 2050, according to the World Energy Council. 

However, overall energy use in the UK is likely to fall despite rising demand. This will be due to a wide range of efficiency programmes and energy saving initiatives.

Plan ahead

Delegates at the event will be able to learn from examples of best practice, plan ahead for changes in energy policy, understand new technologies and have their questions answered by leading experts in the energy management field. 

The event will be held at the University of Salford on 23 March 2017.
