Last few places remaining for Energy Live Consultancy Conference

Category : News

The Energy Live Consultancy Conference (ELCC) returns to Manchester this Thursday, 21 March 2019 and SSE Business Energy is delighted to be sponsoring the conference for another year.

The full-day event sees TPIs, consultants and brokers come together to learn more about the big issues facing the energy sector. And whether that’s helping businesses find the right energy product, or understanding the impact of new technologies on the way we manage our energy and how customers can harness data to reap the benefits of energy, we’ve got some exciting events planned for you.

What can you look forward to?

We’ll be running two seminar sessions throughout the day:

10.30-11.15: Matchmaking your customers’ credit to the right energy product

It’s been a challenging year for the retail sector. Consumer spending is down because of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and subdued wage growth and as a result, many high street businesses are seeing lower sales. This in turn is putting pressure on these companies’ finances, with an increasing number seeing their credit ratings downgraded. The good news is this doesn’t need to affect their ability to find the right energy product.

In this session, SSE Business Energy’s very own risk matchmaker, Rob Silvester, will be on hand to help you choose the best fixed contract for your customers. He’ll explain the benefits of our two flagship fixed contract products, Choice and Protect, and demonstrate that, while the current market conditions may be tough, finding an energy contract that will work for your customers needn’t be.

11.15-12.00: Could data be more valuable than oil?

New technologies are changing the way we live and work, while presenting new opportunities for businesses to monitor and control the energy they use. In the energy sector, smart meters are a key part of the energy optimisation journey, with every business in the UK set to be offered electricity and gas smart metering by the end of 2020. As the number of smart meters increases, so does the amount of data – and when harnessed in the right way, this can offer customers, particularly SMEs, insights into optimising energy usage.

Having the right energy management system is crucial to this and that’s why we offer Clarity, but we also recognise that many businesses don’t have the time or resources to make the most of it. In this session, Thomas Ching, SSE Business Energy’s Smart Deployment Manager and Paul Keigher, Energy Analytics Manager, will talk TPIs through the journey from smart to our energy management platform and the opportunities to identify savings, efficiencies, and sustainable choices. They’ll also give insight into how our new Clarity Managed service can help businesses make the most of the platform while allowing them to focus on their core business.
