Energy experts to meet to discuss consumption reduction strategies
18 June 2012, News release from Energy Management Forum
Next month, the energy management and sustainability communities are gathering on 3 July at 76 Portland Place, London for edieEnergy and Sustainable Business' Energy Management Forum.
"This one day conference has been created out of a need for companies to collaborate and share successes on how to reduce energy consumption and cost," commented event producer Dominica Andrews.
The combination of rising energy costs and carbon legislation have pushed energy management further up the corporate agenda. In a recent white paper, Power Efficiency predicts staggering energy price rises of 81% by 2021.
Additionally, the Climate Change Levy, Carbon Reduction Commitment and Renewables Obligation continue putting additional pressure on businesses.
Cross sector businesses of all shapes and sizes have responded by tapping into the growing number of services and technologies that have entered the marketplace over the last few years; however the need for further innovation continues, driving new partnerships between research institutes and businesses.
Further explaining the rationale behind EMF 2012, Sustainable Business editor Tom Idle commented "The Energy Management Forum 2012 will explore and showcase leading strategies and case studies of reducing energy consumption, increasing efficiency and boosting margins. It will also highlight innovative research being carried out to support the business requirements of the future."
Some of the highlights of the programme include a case study on how BT is achieving 2-3% energy consumption reduction year on year and total savings of £51million in addition to how the Co-operative reduced its operational carbon footprint by over 35% since 2006 across a portfolio of 5,000 buildings.
The Energy Management Forum will be preceded by the Carbon taxation and the sustainability of the green economy breakfast briefing led by the European Commission, Major Energy Users Council, Energy Intensive Users Group and Carbon Disclosure Project.
