The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has given its support to this year’s annual Energy Management Exhibition (EMEX) in London.
Set to take place at the capital’s ExCeL arena, the free to attend energy management event will offer organisations to knowledge and contacts needed to lower their energy consumption.
The event has been organised to help companies reduce their ever-growing energy bills, amid reports that power could soon cost businesses more than rent. Events have been lined up to inform business leaders of the technology and training methods open to them, on top of the government schemes which could help them with the cash needed to kick start energy reduction in the first place.
Attendees will also be able to attend a number of CPD-accredited seminars for free at the event, emexlondon.com notes. So far, four have been lined up, with subjects ranging from LECs (Low Energy Companies) to green IT and energy performance contracting.
Explaining how preparations are going, chief executive of the Energy Manager’s Association, Lord Redesdale, told fm-world.co.uk: “We are delighted to have so quickly secured the support of so many blue-chip organisations.
“Fuel prices are set to continue to rise steeply over the next five years and the only way to reduce costs is to reduce demand. EMEX will focus on educating all those who work with and are responsible for managing energy. This is the event where you will be able to find and talk to companies that have developed the best solutions to decreasing energy costs.”
