Embracing Energy Change – MEUC Pathway Days

London, Radisson Blu Portman: October 4th
Leeds, Royal Armouries: October 10th
(The MEUC 2018 Autumn Roadshow)

Renewables and nuclear are already contributing more than fossil fuels to our energy mix. EVs are set to revolutionise transport and government is planning a net zero emissions future. Big data is starting to show its hand and energy change is in the air, nowhere more so than in the industrial and commercial energy market.

Our new Pathway Days for this year’s MEUC Roadshow will take you through the journey of why and how we Embrace Energy Change. From Members’ concerns now, through the stages we need to face to the options becoming available to take us there. Following the format of our Two-Day “Big Bash” Annual Conference in March the sessions will be largely panel q&a’s following introductory briefings with delegates divided into two work groups for all but the first and last sessions.
