About this webinar


Recorded on: Thursday 18 June 2020

Under lockdown, energy demand and consumption patterns drastically changed. But as entire industries start to go back to work and emerge from lockdown, is this is the perfect time to understand how to optimize energy efficiencies through effective demand-side management. This virtual exchange explores how innovation, technology and regulation can be harnessed to support the transition towards a net zero future and showcase the important role demand-side response will play within it.

Discussion points included:

  • Systemic Policy Incentives: how can policy compliment innovation to shift energy behaviours in large power consumers?
  • Operational Behaviour: how can large power consumers use innovative methods and strategies to change their energy consumption behaviours to reduce demand and cost?
  • Disruptive Technologies: how are AI, IoT, and Blockchain technologies changing the way we consume and manage energy?
