Energy efficiency is increasingly recognised as a vital part of the energy future, in order that we meet UK Government's ambitious targets we must seize the opportunity to scale up the work. This conference examines the opportunities available, as well as the barriers that need to be addressed, to accelerate energy efficiency.

In this conference the panel of expert speakers will examine and discuss the key issues of commercial energy management, including using data effectively to reduce energy consumption, behavioural psychology, as well as discussing ESOS and how companies can best comply with the legislation. 

This established event provides delegates with the opportunity of hearing the highest quality expertise and opinion in the industry and a chance to expand your knowledge and network with like-minded colleagues.
