Lord Sebastian Coe KBE has been announced as the keynote speaker at the energy management event, Energy Solutions 2012.

Having famously led the bid to host the biggest sporting event this year, Lord Coe will give a keynote address at Energy Solutions (London Olympia, 10-11th October) as part of the Energy Solutions education programme.

Energy Solutions will see commercial energy users from all over the UK travel to London Olympia to source up to date information, advice and education. Independent research carried out by Redshift Research in November 2011 demonstrated that cost, compliance, carbon reduction and corporate social responsibility are key concerns for today’s commercial energy users.

Adrian Newton, UBM Live group director for safety and building management, said, “This year, we are offering our visitors a truly exceptional education programme. Energy Solutions has the full support of all the major energy associations and industry groups including the Carbon Trust, BRE and the Energy Institute – and I am delighted that in addition, Lord Coe is able to join us to provide our visitors with a memorable and highly motivational speech.

“Investment in education is something we truly believe in, as such Energy Solutions will play host to an abundance of the free to attend education including the Energy Sense Conference Programme incorporating specialist energy debates and case studies. Energy management professionals attend our event to be inspired by the latest technologies and be counselled by the industry’s best, providing expert opinion and advice on the challenges and issues ahead.”
