Community Energy Markets Conference 

Where Communities Meet Markets

Wednesday 20th April 2016 – Steam Museum, Swindon

I am writing to confirm that unfortunately we have to cancel our community energy markets conference next week.

It seems that the timing is unfortunate; we had a great line up of speakers, and people we approached were very interested, but many had already attended a related conference or two earlier this year.  At the time we announced our conference these other events had not been publicised.  On the plus side, it’s good to hear there’s so much interest in this area of the energy sector and we will continue to be active in it.  Ideally we will host a similar event later in the year.

This was not an easy decision given the time and investment that we, our speakers, sponsors and attendees have already put into it, but we hope people will appreciate that we would rather be professional than go ahead with insufficient attendance.

We thank you for the interest you have shown in supporting our event.  We hope that you will join us at future events.

Kind Regards & Best Wishes

Will Community Energy continue to evolve with the extinction of the dinosaurs?

Community Energy Markets Conference 

Where Communities Meet Markets

Wednesday 20th April 2016 – Steam Museum, Swindon

This is the fourth conference in the series, and will discuss and debate how individuals can directly trade electricity with other local community members.  This is of particular relevance to individuals, communities and organisations with their own generation.

Simon Daniel, CEO at Moixa will be speaking at the event about the progress of their Maslow Smart Storage which has been developed for houses and small businesses. James Lancaster, who runs Alderney Electricity will chair the afternoon session on local supply and operations, bringing together the thoughts on post subsidy renewables, regulatory reform and making local and community energy markets work.  We also have our very own Jez Kent who will discuss security issues.  James Miller from Triodos will talk about investment.  These are just a few examples, why not take a minute to look at the full programme
