Educational Programme

The show features a stellar line-up of speakers

And some fantastic seminar programmes  

 

Why attend?

The built environment is going through a rapid transformation driven by a constant increase in energy prices, disruptive innovations, ongoing changes to building regulations and upcoming legislation that will impose a greater control of emissions.

Applying silo thinking to energy management rarely delivers the maximum savings possible. A far more effective approach is to focus on the whole operation and identify the interdependencies between each function. With this broader view, it is possible to develop and implement solutions that deliver greater cost reductions by increasing energy efficiency across multiple facilities, reducing maintenance costs, reducing water consumption, decreasing production downtime, remove supply chain costs, delivering a return on investment, increasing business assets value and enhancing workplace productivity.

For the first time, the IEMA, BIFM, SOE, BEIS, NFU, Environment Agency, BRE, CBRE, BSI, National Grid and The EMA have joined forces at EMEX to provide professionals with practical knowledge, innovations and insights from successful implementations of the latest energy-saving projects, sustainable operations and low-carbon strategies.

 

Exhibitors

EMEX has over 130 exhibitors and 80 free-to-attend CPD-accredited seminars spread across 5 topical theatres: Knowledge, Skills and Experience, Sustainability & Climate Change, Facilities, Technology & Innovation, Renewable Energy, Supply and Storage and the Flexible Power Zone.

 

To give you a glimpse into the 2018 show, here are some of the highlights of the seminar programme and the exhibition.

 

Climate Change - what have we achieved?

Ten years on from the UK’s ground-breaking Climate Change Act, what have we achieved? What are the next challenges? EMEX' headline speaker Chris Stark, Chief Executive of the UK’s Committee on Climate Change, will provide a progress update and ‘change outlook’.

 

The energy storage revolution

The on-site generation, renewable and the energy storage revolution. Batteries are the hot topic of the moment, so get a grip on technology development and necessary changes in the electricity codes to increase the income generated by batteries. Understand the main issues when considering the installation of all types of on-site generation and gather key learnings to effectively deploy it and gain commercial benefits. Hear about how the public sector is leading the way with West Sussex County Council’s energy team presenting the current YES programme, a 4MW solar farm with battery storage. Exhibitors in this sector include CleanEarth, DenchiGroup, Elgin Energy, Enercon, ESB, FlexiSolar, Norvento Enerxía and Solar Juice.

 

Flexible Power Zone

Back by popular demand, EMEX will feature the Flexible Power Zone in partnership with Power Responsive (National Grid). DSR creates opportunities for flexible businesses to earn revenue by supporting National Grid in times of peak demand or system stress by shifting or reducing demand, or by making capacity available through renewable on-site generation when required. Exhibitors in this sector include E.ON Energy Solutions, Ecotricity, EDF Energy, Flexitricity, GridBeyond, Ørsted, Ecotricity, Energy Pool, Flexitricity and KiWi Power.

 

EV charging

Plans to reform building regulations to accelerate the roll-out of electric vehicle charge points.  With Energy Managers Association’s CEO (Lord Redesdale), Skanska’s Environment Technical Director, E.ON Energy Solutions’ Electric Vehicle Sales Manager, Cenex’s CEO and BT’s General Manager - Procurement will look at the practicalities of the government’s Road to Zero strategy. The Exhibition will also showcase solutions available right now to install EV charging points in commercial sites.

 

Increasing the bottom line

High-performance buildings protect the asset and increase the bottom line. Latest insights revealed by Real Assets at Legal & General Investment Management’s Head of Sustainability, BREEAM Existing Buildings Team’s Principal Technical Consultant at BRE Global, Octavia Housing’s Sustainability and Energy Manager and VINCI Facilities’ Head of Energy & Water Management.

 

EPC

Successes and pitfalls of EPCs. Re:fit's Local Partnerships’ Programme Director, Calderdale Council’s Environmental, Quality and Compliance Manager and Sustainability and Energy Management Expert will present the different types, routes and common barriers of EPCs for public and private sector organisations.

 

Data analytics

Building data analytics and the BMS revolution. Affordability of large-scale data handling technologies has seen the emergence of disruptive solutions that offer a quick and effective to measure, model and analyse live data from any device anywhere to optimise building energy performance, simplify and reduce maintenance costs. Companies exhibiting at EMEX include 4D Monitoring, arbnco, Enerbrain, Ecocentric, Ecoplitot, Innotech Europe, IonSign, iScape Ltd, Metron, MME EDF PowerNow, SMS plc, Optima Energy Management and Optimised Buildings.

 

Energy savings on legacy equipment

Achieve significant energy savings in legacy HVAC equipment. A series of case studies for several different sites managed by ebm-papst UK’s Divisional Director Upgrade Market.

 

Historic buildings

How energy management is realistic in historic buildings? Case studies on heating and hot water refurbishment at St Paul’s Cathedral by Hamworthy Heating and on the security of energy supply at the University of Glasgow by its Energy Manager.

 

Carbon reporting

From April 2019, the rules on energy and carbon reporting are changing. Gary Shanahan, Head of Business and Industrial Energy Efficiency, Tax and Reporting at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), will offer guidance on how organisations can prepare, what will be the qualifying criteria and how the new reporting framework will benefit companies.

 

ESOS Phase 2

Get prepared for ESOS Phase 2 and the latest version of ISO 50001 certification. Plan well ahead to ensure a smooth process for ESOS Phase 2 that has a deadline on 5 December 2019 and an easy transition to ISO 50001:2018 by August 2021. ESOS Lead Assessors will provide first-hand experience from ESOS phase 1 while leading experts from BSI, DNV GL, SGS and BRE will be at the show to help to transition or get certified to the revised standard.
