Exclusive advice at The Energy Event
Visitors to The Energy Event will have an exclusive opportunity to hear about the most advanced strategies for protecting their businesses from market volatility in a seminar from EIC, the UK’s market leader in energy consultancy. The Energy Event, sponsored by Total Gas & Power takes place at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham on 10-11 September 2008.
Energy industry experts from EIC, a key sponsor and advocate of the event, will be passing on a wealth of information and guidance both during daily seminars and at the EIC stand. During the seminars, Dr. Craig Lowrey, Head of Energy Markets at EIC will address the key issues affecting global energy prices and highlight the implications of Government policy on UK businesses.
With energy markets seeing wholesale prices soar to record levels resulting in increased costs for many business customers, Dr. Lowrey, a frequent contributor on energy issues across BBC television and radio, will also examine how the situation is being compounded by an increase in the non-wholesale element of bills through new transmission and distribution charges.
“Energy is very much a global issue so we’re going to be looking at the UK’s presence on the global energy stage and the implications for end users in terms of price determination in the years ahead,” explains Dr. Lowrey. “The industry is facing a whole new set of challenges and buyers need to understand that what has worked in the past won’t automatically work in the future.”
“But if businesses are armed with the right information, they will be able to better understand the implications of market developments and can work on how to minimise the impact of soaring energy prices – it’s these issues we’ll be focusing on at The Energy Event.”
EIC’s seminar is part of the conference and seminar programme at The Energy Event which is the UK’s only annual exhibition and conference to focus solely on energy procurement, management and efficiency, including water efficiency. Also hosting conferences and seminars this year will be ESTA (Energy Services and Technology Association), MEUC (Major Energy Users Council), CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Service Engineers), BCAS (British Compressed Air Society) and Envirowise.
