Green Summit workshop: The energy crisis – How can innovation make energy more sustainable, more secure, and fairer for all?

17 October 2022 @ 1:50 pm - 2:20 pm

This session focuses on energy. The cost of energy in the UK is driving more people into fuel poverty, worsening a cost-of-living crisis, and making operating conditions for business extremely challenging.

We will:

  1. Highlight the challenges behind the current cost of energy and the importance of tackling the energy trilemma to make energy more sustainable, more secure, and fairer for all,
  2. Introduce the Energy Innovation Agency, explaining how it is working with innovators to help solve the energy trilemma and transition GM to carbon-neutral economy,
  3. Hear from an industry speaker about how energy innovation can help solve the energy crisis,
  4. Meet an innovative business, supported by the Agency, who will present their solution.

The session will conclude with a summary of key messages and there will also be the opportunity for the audience to take part in an energy questionnaire. Session outcomes will be fed back to GMCA afterwards.

With speakers:

  • Innovator speaker: Marta Isach, Ovon Technology Ltd
  • Industry Speaker: Dr Eduardo Alejandro Martinez Cesana from the University of Manchester (Multi-Energy Systems – Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering)

This session will appeal to anyone with a business or who is experiencing issues with the cost of energy.
