EDITOR’S NOTE

In the centre pages of this issue you will find an eight page supplement which previews The Energy Event, giving details of what to look out for when you visit the exhibition. Taking place from 13-14 September at the NEC, Birmingham, The Energy Event offers a showcase for the very latest technologies for delivering low energy and low carbon solutions and thus is the perfect environment for building services consultants, contractors, installers and end-users to discover the latest low carbon innovations and products across the market.

As you would expect from this type of exhibition, the event will focus on many of the industry’s growing concerns with climate change, energy usage and environmental issues. The seminar programme will mirror this, with the Energy Insight Theatre providing a forum for debate and discussion around the biggest issues affecting energy pricing, risk, and the reduction of carbon.

The seminar programme promises to bring together leading experts and commentators in the fields of economics, climate change, energy policy and security, nuclear industry, demand management and carbon reduction which will certainly give you a taste for how to position your energy strategy to keep your costs low and reduce your energy risk.

Another highlight of the programme will be on day one when the conference will be chaired by BBC Radio 4’s Today programme presenter, John Humphrys who will chair discussions with key European energy industry figures on topics such as electricity market reform, energy pricing and the prospects for nuclear energy.

With the changes which we are seeing in this industry and the need to be more energy efficient and meet the Government targets for carbon reduction, you can gain a lot by a visit to this event and while it may be difficult to find time to get out of the office, this could certainly prove to be very beneficial in the long term.

So if you think it could be worth a visit, turn to our special supplement to find out more about the seminar programme and who you can expect to see at the exhibition.

See you next month
