Webinar – ‘Optimistic About Energy’

Our next webinar will be given by Greg Jackson founder and CEO Octopus Energy. ‘We stand at a point of critical urgency – the planet’s in crisis and we cannot hesitate to make monumental change. But we’ve never been in a better place to do so. Rapid technology change will bring about a green energy revolution faster than anyone has forecast. What we today see as problems are huge opportunities.’


Speaker(s):Greg Jackson Founder and CEO, Octopus Energy

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
