The Future of Utilities

March 25 2014, London

Richard Postance, leading partner in EY’s Power & Utilities performance improvement practice, chaired the 19th annual Future of Utilities conference on 25 March 2014.

With over 300 energy leaders and more than 60 speakers attending, including Rt Hon Michael Fallon, Minister of State for Business and Energy, no other event gives such a senior and thorough analysis of Britain’s energy, water and gas industry.

Highlights included the morning CEO Forum that considered future challenges facing the industry, including:

  • Is policy creating a healthy enough investment climate for British utilities?
  • What barriers must be overcome to develop an infrastructure for the 21st century?
  • How can utilities recapture public trust at a time of rising living costs?
  • What impact will water competition have on the utilities market?

Chris Lewis, EY Advisory Services Partner, joinied the CEO Forum and debated ‘Assessing future challenges to growth in Power investment’.

The day also brought compelling streams including ‘Keeping the UK’s lights on’, chaired by Richard Postance, and ‘What will the UK’s energy mix look like in 10 years time?’ chaired by EY partner, Ben Warren,  Head of Environmental Finance.
