The Energy Lectures 2011 – a Content Coms client – which takes place at Birmingham’s National Motorcycle Museum on 4–5 May 2011, will feature key note speaker Dr John Constable, Director of Policy and Research at the Renewable Energy Foundation.
Renewable Energy Foundation’s Dr John Constable announced as key note speaker at The Energy Lectures The Energy Lectures 2011, which takes place at Birmingham’s National Motorcycle Museum on 4–5 May 2011, will feature as a key note speaker Dr John Constable, Director of Policy and Research at the Renewable Energy Foundation.
One of the UK’s leading energy sector conferences, The Energy Lectures – which has been relocated from Manchester’s Lowry Centre to feature alongside the inaugural Energy Show – offers senior managers and specialists a content-rich, two-day programme of lectures focused on the most relevant issues in the energy sphere.
Headlining the On-site Generation session, which takes place on 5 May at 1-3pm, Dr Constable’s key note speech is entitled: ‘Renewable Onsite Generation as a Buffer Against Policy Induced Energy Price Rises’.
Dr Constable offers the following summary: “Clean energy policies will result in a heavy cost burden on industrial consumers. While distressed policy correction is probable and should be borne in mind, businesses may be able to employ renewable on-site generation as a claw-back mechanism.”
Dr Constable has been working in energy policy since 2004, and he is currently responsible for co-ordinating the Renewable Energy Foundation’s large circle of practical and academic engineers, and for the direction of policy. The Renewable Energy Foundation is an independent charity that provides data and information about renewable energy technologies. Dr Constable is also the principal author of the Foundation’s publications and consultation submissions.
Shawn Coles, Founder of The Energy Lectures, comments: “Dr John Constable is well respected as a leading voice in the arena of on-site generation of energy, which makes him an exciting addition to the line-up of energy experts appearing at The Energy Lectures 2011. He will be appearing alongside speakers from the public sector – including the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Ofgem – and high-level representatives of business and industry from Energy Alert, Point Carbon and Citigroup, among others.”
For the first time in 2011, The Energy Lectures will be located alongside The Energy Show, a highly-targeted event – sponsored by BIU, The Utilities Exchange and Total Gas & Power – that is focused solely on promoting purchasing, metering and on-site generation of energy.
