National Energy Action Annual Conference & Exhibition
4-6 December 2023, Leicester Tigers Stadium
Energy crisis: two years in
We are aware of the rolling train strikes that were announed recently.
- Monday 4 December: No strikes
- Tuesday 5 December: C2C and Greater Anglia
- Wednesday 6 December: Southeastern, Southern/Gatwick Express and SouthWestern
Thankfully, the impact of the above should be limited, with the vast majority of services being unaffected. We are therefore continuing with the programme as planned. We would however encourage you to check for any travel updates before you depart for Leicester and hope your journey to or from the conference is unaffected.
Energy crisis: two years in
National Energy Action’s conference, bringing organisations together to tackle fuel poverty
In December, we are once again bringing together stakeholders from all sectors with an interest in fuel poverty and energy efficiency to discuss and debate the best ways to address the current energy crisis, two years in.
The National Energy Action Annual Conference regularly attracts over 300 delegates from across industry, not-for-profits, government and regulators, academia, local authorities and housing associations and takes place from Monday evening to Wednesday lunchtime including plenary sessions, breakouts, discussions and Q&A as well as an exhibition and networking opportunities including an opening night buffet and an informal dinner on the Tuesday evening.
As the national fuel poverty charity, at the heart of the event, lies the living experience of those in fuel poverty. We will hear from the people still being affected, we will also welcome the Minister, Amanda Solloway MP, in person, to address our audience in a keynote speech and in conversation with our Chief Executive, Adam Scorer.
The conference will have a focus on UK-wide focus and will include the launch of our UK Fuel Poverty Monitor 2022-23. We will harness insights from all areas: academia and research, policy development and practical delivery of project work in the communities, as well as engaging with new stakeholders and enhance partnership work throughout the sector. The programme will focus on where we are with the energy crisis and discuss what the priorities will be for this coming winter and beyond.
Do join us to bring your views to our audience. Bookings are now open and our agenda will be available on our website as it develops over the coming months. The early bird booking rate is available until 30 September.
Paying-forward bursary scheme
We have many colleagues working and volunteering for small community-based charities and organisations who struggle to afford to attend conference. Their attendance is not only beneficial to their job roles but it also enhances the inclusivity, diversity and mix of expertise and experience that enables all of our delegates to come away from conference with really useful and engaging learnings. We need delegates from all sectors to come together to work to eradicate fuel poverty.
If your organisation is in the position to be able to help pay for someone from a smaller charity or not-for-profit, a bursary place can be made available by you part- or fully funding an extra place at conference that we can allocate on a needs-basis. If you’re willing to take part in “paying forward” for another colleague to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
