Please note, this energy seminar is specific to the UK audience.


New for 2019, our ‘Learn at Lunch’ series of seminars aims to explore frequently discussed topics surrounding the energy industry, providing guests with the opportunity to learn from, and engage with, industry expert Dr Alex Mardapittas, over a complimentary, working lunch.

The Problem

Following the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the efforts to limit climate change to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels to prevent catastrophic climate change have been intensified. IPCC’s report raised a variety of valid concerns and warnings regarding the necessity to limit climate change, and this is a goal shared by most global leaders, as efforts continue across the world to decarbonise, utilise energy efficiently and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

This is dramatically increasing pressure and leading to significant rises in energy costs for businesses of all sizes, in both the public and private sectors, leading organisations to have to reduce their impact on the environment by reducing carbon emissions and make better use of energy.

The Discussion

As ever, technology will be at the forefront of the solution to tackling climate change and its associated pressures, and will involve the implementation of smart energy strategies on a corporate level internationally.

This informative lunch-time session will discuss the topic of decarbonisation, particularly focusing on how this can be achieved within the UK through the growing utilisation of renewable generation, and the use of technologies that maximise this form of generation.

This is particularly relevant as more businesses implement renewable generation strategies, which in turn creates balancing issues for the UK’s antiquated energy network. Technology such as energy storage helps businesses maximise their renewable generation and get the most out of their investment.

Guests will also be introduced to complementary smart energy technologies that can be integrated with energy storage technology to create a holistic smart energy strategy to further reduce energy consumption and costs, whilst minimising carbon emissions to meet required low carbon goals.

Why Attend?

  • Explore the necessity to decarbonise and the technologies that can facilitate this
  • Gain insight into the energy industry in a short, bite-sized session
  • Explore real-life applications, actual savings obtained, and independent verification studies of smart energy technologies, such as energy storage
  • Understand the cost and environmental benefits of implementing smart energy technologies
  • Engage in a lively discussion with energy industry expert, Dr Alex Mardapittas, over a complimentary working lunch
