The event is expected to be attended by all key players in the energy industry, including key government officials, influencers, generators and suppliers. Key note speakers of this year’s event include Angela Knight, Energy UK Chief Executive, Lord Spicer, Energy UK Chairman, Edward Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and Caroline Flint, Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change.
