Energy Procurement Strategies for Lockdown and Beyond

Presented by

Chris Butlin, Enel X, Richard Eaton, NatWest Group

About this talk

From individual businesses to entire industries, the COVID-19 epidemic has forced us to reset, and re-evaluate how we operate. While the “new normal” is filled with unprecedented challenges and ambiguity, this period of forced reflection may also expose opportunity. Energy demand patterns have been turned on their head. Previously busy facilities are now standing idle, while others are struggling to keep up with the spike in demand. Energy procurement managers must try to predict future demand during the most unpredictable of times while at the same time optimising the efficiency of new energy consumption requirements during the crisis. As we come out of lockdown, companies will be under pressure to control their costs as they rebuild, with energy spend in particular coming under the spotlight. The risk to business, and society as a whole, is not just financial. The achievement of long-term sustainability and decarbonisation goals are in the balance. Increasing efficiency, asset optimisation and monetisation, smart energy insights management and the deployment of EV infrastructure will all play a role in delivering a sustainable recovery and, potentially, a better future for us all. Join this webinar to hear Richard Eaton, Energy Manager at NatWest Group, share their ambition to make their UK and Ireland operations net carbon zero in 2020 and climate positive by 2025. Richard will be joined by Andrew Toher and Chris Butlin from Enel X, a company that is actively helping NatWest Group to achieve these goals. Please note, all data you provide through pre-registration will be shared with our webinar partners once the webinar has been concluded. If you do not wish your data to be shared with the partner, please email harry.matyjaszek@futurenetzero.com detailing the specific webinar.
