Customer Data Value

This event will bring together a carefully invited mixture of energy companies, product manufacturers, control companies, service providers and data analytics companies. The  format has been designed for a collaborative (in so much as confidentiality allows) format, allowing for flexibility on the formal structure (below) and interests on the day.

Through a carefully prepared mixture of presentations, panel sessions, discussions and workshops we will share, discuss and debate the opportunities for data analytics to create value in the energy sector.
