Calling all rising stars of the energy transformation
The IGov Final conference: Energy Governance- new ideas, new institutions, new people will take place on 6 December at British Academy, London, SW1Y 5AG. As part of the event we want to identify and promote a cohort of ‘rising stars’ of the energy system, by which we mean: dynamic early-career individuals; new entrants to the energy market; and people promoting innovative ideas and approaches to creating a sustainable, affordable and secure energy system. They could be from academia, industry, Government and regulation, NGOs, communities, etc. from the UK or elsewhere.
As a ‘Rising Star’ we can offer:
- Participation in the invitation-only conference with some opportunities available for presenting new ideas, including in our ‘Energy Den’*;
- Showcasing all ‘rising stars’ in the conference pack and on the IGov website;
- Involvement in the next phase of the IGov research on energy system change, which will run until Sept 2019, including opportunities to take part in our invite-only workshops, webinars and blogging on the IGov website.
Would you like to be one of our rising stars?
or do you know somebody you think should be nominated?
If so please get in touch with a paragraph about yourself or your nominee via firstname.lastname@example.org by 14th October 2016. We will let you know if you have been successful by 21st October.
* The Energy Den is a format we used in a previous conference to provide a broad range of people involved in energy the chance to put forward their ideas about a problem (or problems) with current GB governance, and what the solution(s) might be. The format is based on giving your own personal vision for the future of the energy system, along with a brief statement of the changes in policy, institutions or governance that you think are needed to realise that vision. The presentations are short and punchy, based on a 7-minute format, with feedback from a panel of energy experts/dragons. You are free to be as imaginative or controversial as you like.
