The Conference was very well attended and interesting and informative talks were delivered on subjects of Innovation, Skills, Energy and Economics, all with an East Midlands focus and how we can promote and encourage our region. 

The Energy panel was chaired by Jerome Baddley, Sustainable Services Manager of NEP Energy Services.  Panelists included Dan Monzani from the Department for Energy and Climate Change in discussion with Energy Managers for global plcs and MDs of local SMEs.

The subject of ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) was raised and had a mixed reception.  Some see it as just another government scheme, creating administration and paperwork.  Others are of the view that, like many management systems, if implemented properly and the principles adhered to then savings of time, energy and money can be made.  And if all companies approach it this way the savings become significant.

The cost and security of energy supply was discussed.  One method of suggested cost-reduction was for all businesses on an industrial/retail park to club together to enable economies of scale.   Another valuable point was to consider the amount of wasted energy and its simply a matter of educating staff to switch off lights/heaters/machinery where possible. 

We found it a highly interesting panel and part of a very educational and stimulating day, full of practical solutions for today and blue sky ideas for the future.
