Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2022 New Energy Summit at The Balmoral in Edinburgh. Watch this space for news on future events.

At the New Energy Summit we heard about the latest trends, developments and innovations across Europe to support customers through the crisis while also accelerating the energy transition.

This event brought together key players to discuss the latest developments and expectations for the future of new energy. Delegates will hear about how the landscape is evolving within the context of the energy crisis, learn about emerging customer propositions and opportunities from leading innovators in the sector and enjoy excellent networking with industry peers. 

The 2022 New Energy Summit was sponsored by:

Summit Programme

The energy crisis is the biggest challenge for customers for decades – costs have skyrocketed and physical supply is not guaranteed.  The key solutions which can help address the crisis are also very strongly aligned with the energy transition:

  • Consume less energy – but which have the same customer outcomes
  • Adopt more efficient technologies – which reduce the energy supply required
  • More flexibility – enabling renewables and an efficient energy system

Our summit programme aims to discuss how best to tackle the energy crisis, while providing a better service for customers and making the best decisions for the success of your organisation.

Keynote session – strategic perspective

  • Jon Slowe, Director, Delta-EE
  • Sandra Trittin, Co-Founder, tiko Energy
  • Luisa Matos, Co-Founder | Chief Innovation & Product Officer, Cleanwatts

A discussion with two business leaders who have been at the forefront of the energy transition. They will share their perspective on key learnings from their respective business journeys and how they see the energy transition in Europe evolving in the light of the energy crisis

How to empower customers, helping them understand their energy consumption, and how to act to save energy

  • Charmaine Coutinho, Principal Analyst, Delta-EE
  • David Trevithick, Principal Analyst, Delta-EE
  • Christian Deilmann, CPO, tado
  • David Forsberg, CEO, Bright

Energy insights tools can be the beginning of the journey for companies wishing to engage, empower and eventually collaborate with customers. The panel will discuss questions including:

  • How has the role of energy insight tools evolved?
  • What is the evidence that these tools encourage people to act and can help reduce bills?
  • How much impact can these tools have on this energy crisis or is it actually for future energy crises?
10:45 – 11:15Break
11:15 – 12:30

Propositions and business models helping residential customers to electrify heat and mobility

  • Tessa Clark, Principal Analyst, Delta-EE
  • Philipp Pausder, CEO, Thermondo
  • Rowena Rodrigues, Group Head of External Relations & Engagement, Glen Dimplex
  • Nick Woolley, CEO, EV.Energy
  • Niklas Schirmer, VP Strategy, Elli

Even before the recent energy crisis, it has long been recognised that electrification of the major energy loads for residential customers – heating and mobility – will have a key role in achieving European net zero goals.  However, substantial barriers remain to more rapid electrification – rising electricity prices, high equipment costs, availability of installers and suitable solutions for all types of dwelling. In this session, we will hear from companies at the leading edge of the electrification trend in heat and emobility and discuss questions such as: 

  • What are the latest trends?
  • How are the barriers to customer adoption being addressed?
  • What propositions are getting most traction with customers
  • What is the impact of cost of living crisis – in the short and long term?
12:30 – 14:00Lunch
14:00 – 15:15

The opportunity for Home Energy Management (HEM) to scale up and enter the mass market

  • Arthur Jouannic, Head of Business Development – Europe, Delta-EE
  • Christian Feisst, CEO, Greencom Networks
  • Gaurav Taragi, VP Strategy & Marketing – HEMs & Connected Systems, Schneider Electric
  • Jacob Dalton, Head of Trading & Home Energy Management, Tibber
The strong electrification trends, coupled with the opening up of flexibility and community values across Europe, is creating opportunities for new value streams by management of electricity demand on the customer side.  As energy prices have shot upwards, the value in self-optimisation has increased dramatically. In this session we will discuss:  
  • What is the current state and outlook for the HEM market in Europe?
  • What business models and propositions are gaining traction with customers?
  • Are HEM propositions easily scalable across different European countries? 
15:15 – 15:45Break
15:45 – 17:00

How the demand side is supporting development of a more resilient grid

  • Jon Ferris, Principal Analyst, Delta-EE
  • Lucy Murley, Flexibility Research Service Manager, Delta-EE
  • Serge Subiron, CEO, Jedlix
  • Sandra Trittin, Co-Founder, tiko Energy
  • Luisa Matos, Co-Founder I Chief Innovation & Product Officer, Cleanwatts
  • Lukas Bergmann, Head of Product Management & Regulatory Affairs, Sunamp

Energy markets are still dominated by large generators and, increasingly, grid scale batteries. Small-scale renewables have initiated the rise of the prosumer, but the biggest change is yet to come: the transformation of consumers into active participants in flexibility markets. In this session, the panel will discuss some of the latest innovations and trends in European flexibility markets and address questions such as:

  • Why has residential flexibility been so slow to emerge?
  • What is needed to enable residential flexibility to play a greater role?
  • How will demand side flexibility help to manage the energy crisis this winter?
17:00Conclusion / End
