Energy costs and fuel poverty - immediate priorities and long-term strategy: market conditions, policy, regulation, stakeholder roles, domestic energy efficiency, and consumer protection

Morning, Friday, 8th July 2022


This conference will assess the way forward for addressing rising energy costs and fuel poverty. 


It will be a timely opportunity to examine implications for consumers of the pressures on energy suppliers and the wider energy sector, alongside the future of the price cap and priorities for energy efficiency, and comes as The Queen’s Speech unveiled plans to bring forward a new Energy Bill amongst the wider cost of living crisis.


Delegates will consider options going forward for policy and regulation, as well as debating the roles of key stakeholders in industry, local government and individual households - both in the immediate and long term.


Overall, sessions focus on:

  • consumers - protection strategies ◦ what is needed from policy, regulation and industry action ◦ the future of the price cap
  • energy suppliers - responsibilities ◦ competition ◦ resilience ◦ sector confidence
  • immediate issues - energy efficiency and use in homes ◦ retrofits ◦ construction ◦ decarbonisation policy
  • long-term priorities - behavioural change ◦ innovation in materials and new builds ◦ renewables ◦ supply chain decarbonisation ◦ energy security

We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from: Olivia Haslam, Deputy Director, Warm Homes Team, BEIS; Professor Nick Eyre, Professor of Energy and Climate Policy, University of Oxford; and Director, Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions; and Dan Meredith, Senior Manager, External Affairs, E.ON.


The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials who are due to attend from the DIT; Department for Communities, NI; Department for the Economy, NI; Department of Environment, Climate & Communications, ROI; and the Welsh Government - as well as parliamentary pass-holders from the House of Lords.
