Description

Inspiring our sustainable energy future:
Accelerating change, scaling up action

Our 40th anniversary conference, Thursday 13 June 2019


THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED - but please do register for the waitlist as we anticipate some tickets may become available nearer the time.

You can still register for our celebratory party that evening as we've got more space for that.



This free conference will seek to propagate optimism and inspire action to accelerate change towards a sustainable energy future. We are bringing together key players and practitioners from across the local and national sustainable energy landscape.

The Centre for Sustainable Energy approaches its 40th birthday at a time of national policy deadlock and distraction, but there are nevertheless hopeful signs.

A growing roll call of local authorities have declared a climate emergency in response to the latest scientific evidence. Through school strikes and active citizenship, the voices of a new generation are demanding to be heard. And a groundswell of locally led initiatives is breaking new ground right across the country.

This conference will explore how these positive developments can drive new practice and stimulate new action.

Confirmed speakers include: Jasmine Ketibuah-Foley (Ujima Radio & Green & Black Ambassador); Meghna Tewari (Head of Vulnerability and Consumer Policy, Ofgem); Adam Corner (Climate Outreach); Dr Becky Willis (IGov, University of Exeter); Polly Billington (UK100); Jane Wildblood (Bath & North East Somerset Council); Alison Sleightholm (Western Power Distribution); Felicity Jones (Everoze) and Joanne Wade (Association for Decentralised Energy).

They’ll be joined by some of CSE’s own experts - Joshua Thumim, Rachel Coxcoon, Ian Preston and Janine Michael - and the whole conference will be chaired by our Chief Executive Simon Roberts OBE.

Alongside thought-provoking presentations, participants will have opportunities to share insights and address key questions:

  • How can we scale up, speed up and, in some cases, start up the things we know need to happen and we know how to do?
  • How do we overcome what’s currently stopping us from taking action?
  • What should CSE and others be doing to build trust in our smarter energy future?
  • How do we ensure no one gets left behind in the process?

The latest version of the conference programme can be viewed here

Following the conference will be an evening party to celebrate CSE’s 40th anniversary and to thank everyone who has contributed to the journey so far.
