The Energy Opportunity


Want to significantly reduce your business energy costs? Looking to compete in a global emerging market? Keen to build the North of England as a powerhouse that drives energy transition?

Then this new CBI conference, The ‘Energy Opportunity’ is not to be missed.

Why the ‘Energy Opportunity’?

Advances in energy technologies mean that energy transformation is now more possible than ever and it’s opening up new opportunities for businesses to prosper in a clean economy.

A new global market, estimated to be worth £170 billion by 2030, is emerging as energy transition drives businesses to think differently about how they consume energy.

Firms in the North are well place to capitalise on this new market and all firms need to be looking to develop new energy strategies that not only increase profitability, win new customers and derive genuine competitive advantage while reducing pollution.

This new CBI Conference will help you get informed, engaged and ready to take advantage of the Energy Opportunity.

A must attend event for:

Business leaders

From firms large and small, responding to key government policy changes such as:

  • net-zero UK emissions by 2050
  • the end of new sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040
  • the introduction of a Future Homes Standard by 2025

Business leaders looking to tap into the Energy opportunity: the green economy is comfortably outperforming the wider underlying economy, the sector grew by 6.8% to £44.5bn in 2017

Business Leaders and Policy Makers with an interest in developing the Industrial strategy for the North: with nearly half of the UK’s renewable energy being produced in the north, the region is ideally placed to deliver a 'green jobs' revolution of 46,000 new jobs by 2030
