Join us at the BIEE’s 11th Oxford research conference  which will bring together some of today's most influential industry leaders, policymakers and academics to explore the big trends and likely discontinuities in energy over the next five to ten years and to look at how innovation will change the future energy mix and the thrust of policy.
Delegates will participate in two days of stimulating, interactive discussion and debate on the impact of innovation and disruption on the energy sector and gain an overview of how “innovation” -  not just technological innovation but innovations in policy and the way energy developments are financed -  will transform the energy sector in the next five to ten years.
