In an era where energy plays a pivotal role in our lives, it is imperative to ensure that its benefits are accessible to all. The democratisation of energy lies at the heart of this seminar, as we delve into the importance of empowering communities, individuals, and businesses to actively participate in energy decisions. Discover how embracing a more inclusive approach can drive social and economic progress while promoting energy justice.

Understanding the complexities of energy pricing is essential for businesses and consumers alike. The seminar will also explore the energy price cap and the spark gap (the relative gap between electricity and gas prices) and their implications.

Join us for an insightful morning of networking, expert talks and engaging Q&A over a sustainably-sourced breakfast with sponsors Aura Power and Centre for Sustainable Energy.

This event is free to our Network members and coworkers, and open to all. Concessions rate tickets available.
