The Future of Energy Conference and Exhibition on 4 December 2015 will examine Government policy, industry collaboration and how the UK can ensure a secure and stable energy supply.

The conference and exhibition will bring together senior industry figures to provide an overview of UK energy policy and the direction that the nation must take to create a variable energy mix that is low carbon, secure and able to respond to increasing demand.

The event has been organised by the Carbon Trust in collaboration with the University of Salford, which is a leading centre for energy research, particularly in the built environment and energy efficiency retrofit.

Energy experts

Delegates will hear from best practice case studies and will have the opportunity to discuss how the UK energy sector is addressing the key issues of energy security and climate change through greater investment and industry collaboration.

The panel of expert speakers includes Nigel Fox, energy demand manager at the National Grid, Nils Lehman, new ventures manager for innovation at the Carbon Trust, and a number of representatives from companies in the renewable energy and energy storage sector.

Innovation focus

Innovation will be a central theme for the event. With 70 per cent of future economic growth projected to come from innovation, new developments in the low carbon energy sector are expected to make a significant contribution and could save the UK over £100 billion in energy costs by 2050.

The event is relevant for a wide range of stakeholders in the energy sector, including energy suppliers and installers, housing firms, local authorities, sustainability and energy managers and NGOs.
