DISCUSSING the new Integrated Single Energy Market (ISEM) and Energy Procurement – gas and electricity – was the focus at a packed-out seminar organised by Naturgy Energy, in association with Action Renewables.
The energy seminar, which took place at Holywood Golf Club, played host to a range of high calibre speakers who delivered insight into how ISEM will change the electricity market from a network’s perspective, and what impact ISEM may have on large energy users.
Talking to the audience, comprising of some of NI’s biggest energy users, speakers included Stephen Behan, Business Development Manager from Naturgy Energy who took to the stage to talk about opportunities in the Wholesale Energy Markets, Senior Energy Consultant, Sandy Wito from Wito Energy who gave an insight into how ISEM will impact on companies across Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the success of the recent event, Peter Girvan from Naturgy Energy, said “the energy market in Northern Ireland is undergoing a fundamental change in the way businesses procure and manage their energy. Minimising energy costs and achieving greater efficiencies are becoming even greater considerations. This is having a direct impact on the way companies across Ireland source their energy, with an increasing trend among larger users to procure energy directly on the wholesale market. At Naturgy Energy we work with our Customers to develop an energy strategy that is best for them.”
“Our ISEM seminar is just the first of a number of seminars that Naturgy is planning to deliver in Northern Ireland. We’re looking forward to sharing information with customers and other businesses on the key issues that are impacting NI’s businesses energy consumption and costs.”
Other speakers at the event included Ivan Jackson, who spoke about his learnings from five years spent in the emerging energy market of Somaliland, and Jonathan Buick from Action Renewables who delivered advice on how to reduce energy consumption through renewable generation.
