If you are a big energy user, says DWF, you will be affected by important changes and greater choice of energy consumption this year. DWF claims that the seminar will enable companies to be better prepared and able to make informed decisions that will affect costs, efficiency, carbon emissions and compliance with new regulations. Marks and Spencer’s Head of Energy, Penny Guarnay, will talk about her company’s sector-leading approach to energy management.

Also under discussion will be ESOS – the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme – a new environmental scheme administered by the UK’s Environment Agency which is designed to encourage large organisations to save energy and money. The Environment Agency estimates that if all participants in ESOS reduce their energy consumption by an average of 0.7%, this would reduce their energy bills by over £250 million. It is a mandatory scheme which requires qualifying organisations to identify their total energy consumption and then audit 90% of their energy consumption to identify practicable ways in which they can improve energy efficiency and the cost benefits of doing so.

Questions that DWF plans that the seminar will answer include:

  • What is the likely impact of water deregulation?
  • Do you have the right type of energy supply contract in place?
  • How are businesses creating energy from waste to offset energy costs?

The seminar takes place in London on Tuesday, 30 June.
