West Midlands manufacturers are being invited to attend a seminar designed to offer advice on cutting spiralling energy bills.
The Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) event at the Molineux home of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC on November 27 will examine the future of energy procurement, management and generation methods.
Hosted in partnership with UPA Energy and Loryan Renewable Engineering, the seminar will outline the growing role manufacturers must play if the UK is to address climate change and energy security.
Business will be given advice on overcoming challenges presented by high costs and increasingly challenging carbon emission targets.
Richard Lower, of MAS, said: “One of the key services we offer manufacturers is our ability to put them in touch with the right industry experts, who can provide specialist advice. This time the focus will be on current and future opportunities in the energy and renewable sectors.”
Paul Faragher, managing director of UPA Energy that manages an energy portfolio worth in excess of £600 million, will be a keynote speaker.
He said: “Every year the energy industry creates new trends and challenges. Market volatility and complex regulations continue to challenge business owners. To succeed in this competitive marketplace, businesses need to address all aspects of their energy consumption.”
The event is free to attend. Places can be reserved by registering at www.mymas.org .
