What is your organization doing to fight rising energy costs?

This conference will demonstrate how implementing an energy management system into your everyday practice can help you improve your energy efficiency and reduce your energy costs. It also provides you with a unique opportunity to get the latest update about government's flagship energy saving plan – the Green Deal scheme and its progress.

Our expert panel of speakers will discuss the newly published international energy management systems standard, ISO 50001, which is set to replace the existing British Standard, BS EN 16001, and the impact of this change for those who have already implemented BS EN 16001.

First hand practical tips and case studies will address not only practical challenges and benefits of implementing the standard, but also explain how companies in the UK have already seen energy efficiency improvements and financial savings through implementing the strategies and initiatives contained in the standard.

5 reasons to attend:

  1. Hear the latest Government update about the Green Deal initiative
  2. Understand why ISO 50001 was developed - the scope, benefits and challenges of implementation
  3. Examine the relationship between BS EN 16001 and ISO 50001
  4. Learn how energy management systems and a best practice approach could improve your energy efficiency and reduce costs
  5. Engage in lively discussions and have your questions answered by energy management experts
