Insight and innovation for those at board level in companies are the focus of The Energy Event 2007.
The questions of people at board level responsible for controlling energy costs as part of their wider job role will be addressed at a conference at The Energy Event 20077 on 12 and 13 September at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham. Conference sessions on the first day will focus on energy procurement, with energy management being the topic on the second day. Eamonn Brennan, exhibition director, says, ‘The aim is to inform delegates how the UK economy and individual business can achieve economic growth and increase competitiveness while improving corporate social responsibility through high standards in energy and environmental policy.’ Among those presenting papers at the conference will be Matthew Farrow, head of environment at the CBI. He will discuss the CBI’s policy work on all environmental issues, including climate change, waste, environmental regulation and energy policy. Other confirmed speakers include Andy Batchelor (director of energy and fuel with Tesco Stores), Simon Mendham (energy manger with Vodafone), William McKeever (head of energy for Europe, North Africa and Middle East with Bloomberg) and Kirsty Clough (climate change policy officer with the World Wildlife Federation).
