Selected from recommendations by the community, the futurists, executives and inspirational leaders giving keynotes are tasked to broaden our horizons and work with the Engerati content team to deliver original presentations. They will show us how new connections can lead to new business models and evoke material change. Where does the potential lie and where is the inflection point?
To overcome current challenges, understanding new creative solutions and uncovering the latest innovations is key. Based on active use-cases and pilots, these sessions bring technology to life with business-case driven deeper dives into real-world technology. They offer an honest assessment of how mature the technology is and what it’s immediate impacts could be.
Working Groups are at the heart of Engerati Meets; they move away from traditional conference powerpoints with all participants taking part on equal basis to ensure consensus and intelligence sharing.
Led by expert facilitators, the groups help remove barriers to change, identify growth opportunities and establish new action-plans. Focusing on key challenges decided at the Meet itself, the diverse makeup of the group ensures robust discussion and new ideas. The discussion is captured by Engerati editors, anonymised and distributed on engerati.com.
If you cannot share lessons learned in 10 minutes, they are not worth hearing about. Submitted by utility members, these quick-fire case studies showcase key learnings from active projects to highlight technology in action. The challenge is to communicate the business impact of real-world deployments and results in just 10 minutes with 20 slides. We encourage presenters to openly dissect mistakes so fellow members do not encounter the same problem.
Dynamic energy efficiency markets are critical to the success of a balanced energy system. In this Engerati Meet we cover the three impact areas critical to the accelerated adoption of energy efficiency.
The Energy Efficiency Business Case – made simple
Nearly all energy efficiency projects will require some form of capital investment to realise their full potential. Whether this is for a retrofit, building automation or lighting.
Creating a business case must be easy. In this Engerati Meet you will be involved in creating a business case template which will translate the value of energy efficiency to your organisation.
You will create this in a working group with your peers and industry insiders.
Easily Securing Investment
Investment requires a bankable business case. Investors are keen to make funds available but need to see bankability beyond the business case.
A number of platforms have been developed to match investors with bankable projects which do you choose and how do you take a business case to a bankable project?
As part of this Engerati Meet you will be working with peers not only to solve this problem but you will also hear from Investment platform providers how they have tackled the problem.
Engaging the Market
Once the big gains in energy efficiency usually requiring capital outlay, such as a retrofit, or LED lighting are realised further long terms gains can be made by engaging in the energy market and driving continuous energy efficiency gains for your assets.
The rewards are there for engaging in this market and can deliver significant business advantages.
At this Engerati Meet you will engage in working groups to understand the foundation of how to engage in this market or partner with an organisation which will do this for you.
