Utility Week Live, 22nd - 23rd May 2018



The Opportunity of an Industrial Strategy

24 May, 14:00, 75 min, location TBC

With the introduction of an industrial strategy for the energy industry, the Young Energy Professionals (YEP) Forum is hosting its first Utility Week Live seminar, offering attendees the chance to discuss the opportunities an industrial strategy could bring to the UK’s energy sector. Will an industrial strategy provide long term certainty? Will it boost investment? How will it affect competition? Will the UK deliver on its commitment within the 2008 Climate Change act? How can we ensure industry productivity and competitiveness via the promotion of innovation, skills and training? Join us for an exciting panel Q&A with the following speakers (further panellists to be confirmed).

  • (Moderator) Tanisha Beebee, Policy Executive, Energy UK & YEP Forum Lead 
  • Matthew Knight, Director of Energy Strategy and Government Affairs – Siemens UK
  • Jeni Oppenheimer, Chief Strategist - UK Power Reserve

The best industry exhibition I have ever been to. Thought provoking, interesting, good networking, with a positive feel to the whole event… it was excellent!
