Breakfast Briefings

Breakfast Briefings

Energy UK hosts a series of Breakfast Briefings throughout the year on cutting-edge issues of interest to our members and stakeholders.  These range from policy-specific topics such as implementation of REMIT or the role interconnection plays in our energy mix to general discussions around the politics of energy or the digitalisation of utilities.  

Usually a panel session of two hours, the briefings provide an opportunity for guests to hear from an expert panel on a topic area before moving on to a Q&A discussion for sharing ideas and best practice.

We work with a range of partner organisations on these events and there are a number of sponsorship options available. These sessions are an excellent opportunity for showcasing thought-leadership and hearing from leading policymakers.  Further details on partnering with us for a Breakfast Briefing is available on our sponsorship page.

Energy UK & Deloitte Breakfast Briefing - The Compliance Challenge

Date: Tuesday 27 June 2017
Time: 10:30-12:30hrs
Location: Deloitte Offices, Stonecutter Court, 1 Stonecutter Street, London, EC4A 4TR

Remaining compliant is a challenge for every Utilities organisation operating in the UK today, Why? 

  1. The complexity of regulation is increasing
  2. The reputational risk to organisations of getting it wrong are increasing
  3. The regulatory financial penalties are increasing.
  4. Cost pressure internally increasingly asks compliance functions to do more for less.

The Future

The future of compliance looks very different. Organisations in the long term will need to deal with robotics, blockchain, cognitive computing and big data! The capabilities required in the future look very different to those today and organisations need to have a roadmap for change meeting the compliance challenges of today with one eye on tomorrow.

We will be joined by representatives from the utilities industry and other sectors who will share insights, the trends in compliance, a fresh perspective on the role of a compliance function and a methodology for “leaning compliance” that will reduce overall compliance costs.   

The costs for this event is £35+VAT for Energy UK members and £85+VAT for non-members.
