Successfully managing energy demand in the workplace requires a vast skill set: data analyst, behavioural psychologist, architect and designer and project manager. Not to mention a good grasp of the changing legislative landscape.

This conference will look at the lifecycle of an energy efficient project, enabling delegates to accelerate the delivery of their own projects to form a sustainable and scalable energy-efficient business strategy. 

Energy Efficiency 2016 is your first opportunity to meet with industry regulators, legislators, utility suppliers and fellow energy managers to debrief on the process of completing ESOS compliance period one, following its December deadline.

Talks, case studies and group discussion will give you the chance to feedback your thoughts, and to hear from others, on the challenges of carrying out this mandatory assessment, and what impact it will have on achieving our waste reduction targets. 

Delegates can also reflect on the outcomes of the COP21 climate change agreements, and what effect this will have on policy, regulation, finance, technologies, and wider deployment, for improving the productivity and profitability of energy efficiency in the UK.
