Innovation and Disruption: the energy sector in transition

BIEE’s Oxford Research Conference is a biennial research conference that seeks to understand the drivers of change in energy, both positive and negative. The 2016 conference will focus on the themes of disruption and innovation which are characteristics of current energy industries and markets, nationally and globally. Energy researchers and practitioners in the policy, industry, financial, analyst, consulting and media communities are now invited to submit abstracts aligned to the conference theme.

Venue:St. John's College, Oxford , OX1 3JP

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
