2018-09-18 10:00 2018-09-19 17:00 Europe/London

Join colleagues from the energy industry, financial sector, policy community and academia at the BIEE’s research  conference on September 18-19 for  two days of high level debate on the changing role of consumers in the energy system, regarded but many (but not all) as one of the big transitional issues of the coming decade.

With the emergence of advanced technology, ‘smart’ consumers, (both industrial and domestic) can potentially make more informed choices about when and how much energy they use and ultimately become ‘prosumers’ – energy producers and storers – themselves. But most consumers are just not that interested in energy, and lack the engagement that drives disruption in other sectors, so how far, how fast and in what ways will this change?

The conference will explore the challenges and opportunities for an energy system where connected consumers are key drivers, ‘acting as the market makers rather than market takers of today’ and will look at the ways markets, business models, technology and regulation will need to change in response.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Philip New, CEO, Energy Systems Catapult
  • Barbara Hammond, MBE, CEO, Low Carbon Hub
  • Peter Bance, CEO, Origami Energy
  • Catherine Mitchell, Professor of Energy Policy,University of Exeter
  • Juliet Davenport, CEO, Good Energy
  • Kate Collyer, Chief Economist for Energy  and Markets, BEIS
  • Barbara Vest,  Director of Generation, Energy UK
  • Lawrence Orsini, Founder and CEO, LO3 Energy
  • Angie Boakes, General Manager, eMobility, Shell
  • Kingsmill Bond, New Energy Strategist, Carbon Tracker Initiative
  • Dermott Nolan, CEO, OFGEM
  • Jenny Saunders, former CEO, NEA
