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.
Technology Disruption in Energy

Join Energy UK and PwC on 24 January in London for our first Breakfast Briefing event of 2018; Technology Disruption in Energy.
As the energy sector goes through a rapid pace of change from the decentralisation of electricity generation to the regulatory reforms shaping our transformation, there is one aspect often not challenged enough; digitalisation in energy.
This Breakfast Briefing will bring together leading practitioners across the technology and energy sectors to analyse and discuss the impacts technology and innovation are and will continue to have on the energy/utilities industry. Speakers will delve into technologies from blockchain and AI to automation and the Internet of Things to discuss their merits and drawbacks but ultimately, raise awareness of the impacts such innovation will have on the future energy system.
