Energy Efficiency’s Movers and Shakers Meet at EMEX London

Ahead of the 2015 Paris Climate conference, UK energy efficiency’s movers and shakers meet at The Energy Management Exhibition (EMEX), the largest business focused event taking place this year on 11- 12 November at ExCeL in London.

EMEX establishes and builds partnerships between business, third party intermediaries, training suppliers, government and public bodies to accelerate the adoption of energy efficiency measures in order to reduce energy demand.

We do this by providing an event platform across which stakeholders can share knowledge, technologies and expertise, and identify innovative solutions to the challenges businesses are facing with the rise of energy prices and the legislative framework to reduce carbon emissions rapidly.

EMEX 2015 Highlights:

  • 4,000+ attendees – the largest number of key stakeholders and energy users.
  • Major energy users – meet champions and key decision makers from across a wide spectrum of industry sectors who have successfully implemented substantial energy efficiency measures.
  • Over 80 first class speakers including industry CEOs, thought leaders, and key representatives from UK government departments and agencies.
  • Interactive discussion panels throughout the event, allowing for in-depth learning and knowledge delivery.
  • Workshops and co-located awards ceremonies to maximise networking opportunities throughout the two days

Lord Redesdale, CEO at The Energy Managers Association (EMA) will be talking about the new Junior Energy Manager Apprenticeship, the Low Energy Company (LEC) scheme and staff training that is taking place across the country.

Kevin Sirjuesingh, Director of IT strategic initiatives at Coca-Cola Enterprise will talk about his journey implementing LEC training and will reveal the tangible outcomes as a result of it.

Penelope Guarnay, Group Energy Manager at Marks and Spencer and Wendi Wheeler, Energy & Carbon Strategy Manager at Network Rail will be launching “Empowering Women in Energy Management and Environment Group”, an EMA initiative to encourage and enable more women to enter the world of Energy Management and other environmental roles.

In Theatre Two, covering Utilities and Energy Services, EnPC, the commercial water marketplace deregulation coming up in 2017 and its huge potential for customers.

At the Summer Budget the Chancellor announced a review of business energy efficiency taxes and associated regulations. This review seeks to identify opportunities to simplify the policy landscape and identify opportunities to improve the effectiveness of achieving government policy objectives.

During the consultation period the HM Treasury will be seeking your guidance on how to cut the red tape surrounding the current taxation and reporting schemes for organisations across industries.

To express the views of your organisation/industry on the current energy efficiency taxation regime and how to improve it, and to find out more about the HM Treasury’s streamlining taxation and reporting thought process, we are inviting you to hear Nico Heslop, HM Treasury Deputy Director of Energy & Transport Tax presenting at EMEX on 12 November.

Furthermore, this year at EMEX, you will also gain greater insights into all major energy saving initiatives across all sectors.

EMEX will reveal how major energy users in the public sector such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew or the Department of Energy & Climate Change have successfully deployed the Mayor of London’s award-winning scheme RE:FIT which provides a commercial model for public bodies wishing to achieve substantial financial cost savings, improve the energy performance of their buildings and reduce their CO2 footprint.

There will be a panel session with representatives from Honeywell, and Peterborough Council, on how to successfully deploy EnPC contracts utilising the OJEU compliant Framework procured by Peterborough City council.

Across the two days, EMEX will provide visitors with a series of case studies where leading practitioners will share their knowledge and expertise across a broad range of topics and industries such as behavioural change with the Environmental Manager at Barts Health NHS Trust and the Risk Management & Sustainability Advisor at The Ambassador Theatre Group; Staff training with the Energy Manager at Network Rail, the innovative use of natural resources with the Group Environmental & Sustainability Engineer at Wabtec Group; and reducing heating costs with the Head of the Environment Services at Lincolnshire County Council.

Theatre three will cover the issues of Energy Management Solutions, and will host the Private sector awards run by the EMA on Wednesday 11 November and the Public Sector Sustainability Award ceremony run by the IPSEM (Institute of Public Sector Estates Management) on Thursday 12th November.

Theatre four will be dedicated to Energy Use in the Built Environment in partnership with BIFM and sponsored by EDF Energy. By the time EMEX opens its’ doors in November, organisations will have only 3 weeks to ascertain whether they are affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and have until end of January to carry out an assessment.

Jo Scully, Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Project Manager at The Environment Agency will be at EMEX all day to discuss ESOS progress, take FAQs from visitors and present the second phase with the implementation of all the measures identified during the compulsory assessment.

EMEX will also look at Energy and Facilities Management with the launch of the 40:20:40 Ratio initiative to recognise the greater role behaviour change should play into the mix of energy efficiency measures.
