Remember, remember, see you at EXPO on the fifth of November

Category : News

SSE Business Energy is proud to once again be sponsoring Energy Live News EXPO.

Join us at London’s QEII Centre on 5 November, to delve into the energy industry’s latest trends and discover solutions to energy issues that large businesses face. EXPO19’s theme will be ‘Climate Change – Doing our Bit’.

In today’s business climate, growth at all costs is no longer an option. Modern consumers expect more from companies and organisations, who are running vast campaigns to show their green credentials against a background of public dissent and anger. And if you want to achieve sustainable growth, you must recognise your wider responsibilities: to your people, to the environment and society at large.

EXPO19 will highlight all the great work that the UK energy sector is doing to mitigate climate change. This summer saw a record-breaking nearly two weeks without coal generation, and the delivery of the 588MW Beatrice offshore wind farm (SSE share: 40%) which boosted SSE’s renewable energy capacity to around 4GW.

How can you build your strategic case for climate action? Find out from Rachel McEwen, SSE’s Chief Sustainability Officer, and Vijay Chouhan, Telefónica UK’s Energy and Sustainability Manager, at 11.30am (stream 2). At a time when climate change has become a global emergency and there’s an increasing need for businesses to transform their approach, learn how Telefónica has embedded sustainability into its business operations.

And to discover why sustainable growth starts with smart, join John Abbott, SSE Business Energy’s Smart Programme Director, at 2pm (stream 3). He’ll explain how smart metering technology can help businesses become more energy efficient, which in turn can increase productivity, attract new customers and reduce their carbon footprint.

You can also hear from Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Minister of State at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Other speakers include Kirsty Gogan, Co-Founder and Global Director of Energy for Humanity, Adam Woodhall, Extinction Rebellion spokesperson and Steve Holliday, former CEO of National Grid and new President of the Energy Institute.

Our energy experts will also be at our exhibition stand 28-29 throughout the day – make sure you stop by to discuss your energy needs.

Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019

Location: Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Westminster, London

Further information and details on how to apply for a free ticket – if you’re an energy end user – are available from the Energy Live News website.

We look forward to seeing you there!
