Power Responsive Conference

16 Jun 2016

A year on from the launch of Power Responsive, we were delighted to host the second annual conference, bringing together energy industry experts and business customers. This conference addressed how businesses can unlock the benefits of demand side participation, with a view to closing the gap between awareness and action.

We held plenary sessions in the morning with a host of leading industry experts, and offered a choice of more informal breakout sessions in the afternoon where delegates could drill deeper into the topics most pertinent to them. The exhibition space provided a valuable opportunity to engage with suppliers.
