Why EUW 2018 is a must-attend event for industrial energy users
European Utility Week is the region’s premier event for utility industry professionals. But it’s not just representatives of utilities who attend. EUW is welcoming more and more commercial and industrial energy consumers.
Commercial and industrial energy users are at the heart of Europe’s energy transition. Together they consume 26% of Europe’s energy annually. And with Europe targeting a 40% CO2 emission cut by 2030 and 60% by 2040, the role of industrial and commercial energy users is pivotal.
Major energy users want a transparent and competitive energy market, and opportunities to improve energy efficiency and contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions. But they’re also anxious to stay competitive with other parts of the world where energy is cheaper and environmental obligations less demanding.
Participants in the Commercial and Industrial Energy Users Days at last year’s EUW included energy managers, procurement managers and sustainability managers in sectors such as agriculture, automotive, food, pharma and textiles, including business such as Air Liquide, Akzo Nobel, Amazon, BASF, Cargill, Danone, Dow Benelux, Heineken, ING, Microsoft, Schiphol Airport and Tata Steel.
At EUW 2018 we’re expecting yet more big names to attend, and we’ll once again be offering a programme tailored to this important audience – only this year it’s even bigger and better.
Together with our partners VIK and VEMW, which represent major energy users in Germany and the Netherlands respectively, we’ve crafted a programme that provides a journey through the three days of the event, with content tailored specifically to the needs of large energy users. Representatives of large energy users can register for a free pass to all three days of EUW 2018.
The programme includes hub sessions on Wednesday 7 November on energy price drivers, monetising flexibility and a dedicated session on best practices for major energy users, with speakers including the VP of global energy and utilities at telecoms giant Liberty Global, and representatives of the energy user associations VIK and VEMW. There’s also tons of content in our Energy Markets track on the future shape of the market and energy pricing.
Attendees will learn about:
- How to monetise your flexible capacity
- What’s driving energy prices
- Improving your energy efficiency
- Embracing digitalisation
- Best practices on storage
- Procuring energy
- The future role of the consumer on the energy transition
