Consumers at the Heart of the Energy System?

The BIEE’s 2018 research conference will explore the challenges and opportunites for an energy system where connected consumers ‘act as the market makers rather than market takers of today’ and will look at the ways markets, business models, technology and regulation will need to change in response. ‘The current market arrangements that we have, the consequent business models that we have and the technology platforms that we have today are simply not going to be fit for purpose for the changing needs of consumers, for the market in the future’

Venue:Blavatnik School of Government 120 Walton Street, Oxford, OX2 6GG

The BIEE aims to encourage the exchange of ideas and information between energy professionals from different disciplines and sectors of the industry and to promote a responsible, evidence based approach to the challenges of energy policy and tackling climate change.

We have a diverse membership that cuts across traditional industry sectors with members drawn from academia, government, industry and finance.

BIEE is impartial, globally informed, and focuses on energy economics and policy.

Our members benefit from meetings, conferences and seminars throughout the year, access to latest papers, presentations  and videos of our events, plus a unique network of valuable contacts in academia, industry, finance and the public sector.

BIEE membership is available for companies, individuals and students and can be combined with membership of the IAEE
