As the "greenest government ever" works towards the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% in 2050, this major summit will explore the long-term solutions for energy supply in a carbon constrained economy and the relevant impacts on energy suppliers, industry, local authorities and consumers.
This summit will bring together experts and stakeholders from across the public, private and third sectors to discuss how we deliver a secure energy supply with a low carbon output, and how we bring about the relevant investment to make this happen.
This summit will provide delegates with an early opportunity to discuss and be informed on the long-term solutions for energy supply, following the publication of a white paper on electricity market reform. Throughout the day delegates will have the chance to engage with panels of experts from government and beyond in considering key issues such as:
• What are the main challenges associated with re-inventing the electricity market?
• How do we deliver the proposed reforms in the white paper?
• What are the available methods for the future energy supply?
• What is the challenge for the future energy security of the UK?
• Where will the funding come from for this transformation and how much is required?
• What incentives can be made to further increase investments in renewables?
• How will the "Green Deal" affect consumers and energy firms alike?
• Can we ensure that the most vulnerable households benefit from the "Green Deal"?
• Should local authorities play a greater role in the roll out of the "Green Deal"?
• How can businesses and heavy industry work within a framework of low carbon energy production and distribution?
• Can a low carbon energy supply keep up with future business demand?
• What level of efficiency savings can a smart grid provide and what are the major roadblocks facing its completion?
• How will micro generation and feed-in tariffs help encourage more households to embrace renewable energy?
Delegates will also have the opportunity throughout the day to network with colleagues from across the energy sector, as well as take part in highly interactive workshop sessions.
Who should attend?
Delegates will be drawn from a wide range of energy stakeholders, including: energy firms, housing firms, local authorities, trade associations, heavy industry, green groups, regional planning groups, consumer groups, environmental researchers, charities, NGOs, government agencies and central government.
