Upcoming events

Baringa's Energy Community Event | London

Thursday, 26 September 2019

We are inviting you to join a Baringa-hosted networking event for professionals in the early stages of their career in the energy sector.

We have seen oil majors investing in charging technology, car manufacturers announcing large ranges of new electric vehicles and hybrids (BMW plans to release 25 new models by 2023), and grid operators rushing to prepare for the imminent increase in demand that comes with this. The Electric Vehicle-movement has gained real traction and will have a huge impact on the whole energy sector. Join us for a peer-to-peer networking event where we will discuss the impact of electric vehicles on the energy industry and on different companies within the sector.

We will kick the evening off with a presentation by Oliver Rix, Partner in Baringa’s Energy practice. He will challenge our thinking and present his views on the impact of EVs across the energy sector, and how an ‘electric future’ could look. We will also showcase some of our recent work, e.g. the smart charging trials with consumers, and our modelling work in the field of grid constraints with European TSOs. A moderated discussion will follow, and we are looking forward to hearing from our guests as to how they foresee EVs will impact their businesses.

For more information, please contact Ben Heininger.

Customer and digital roundtable breakfast | London

Thursday, 26 September 2019

Roundtable breakfast event for executives shaping their digital customer service and operations.

You have started investing in a number of changes to digitise your customer operations, but what’s next, where is your journey going? What is critical, what is nice to have, and how do you engage and maintain executive support for your long-term vision and the necessary investment? Are you making the right investments to reduce cost and deliver a competitive advantage, and do you have the right support?

Many organisations, particularly those not born in the digital era, have started their digital transformation at the outer ring of the organisation, the customer interface. The inner workings of the businesses have often taken second priority, leading to experiences that are not ‘joined up’ and do not meet the needs of customers. How do you help embed digital transformation throughout the organisation, to ‘be digital’ not just ‘do digital’?

Energy Transition - when digitisation, AI and decarbonisation join forces | Amsterdam

Wednesday, 15 May 2019

The energy system is undergoing slow but radical changes. Explore with us what is possible when digitisation, AI and decarbonisation join forces, what this means for the future utility and where to invest in the sector. 

A TED-style talk by Cris Lowery on the role digitisation plays as a key enabler to develop more intelligent energy systems, and what surprises it may hold for the sector, will kick off the evening. Helge Barlen will share his views on how the global energy system may evolve and what lessons can be learnt for a viable energy mix from Germany and the global energy landscape.

This is an event for senior stakeholders from the Energy and Resources sectors and coincides with  Energy Transition World Forum (ETWF) and Flame 2019. For more information please email enquiries@baringa.com.

Future Energy Leaders Forum | London

Tuesday, 6 November 2018

This second event in the series was dedicated to digital innovation.

We welcomed Jo Cox, Commercial Director, Centrica Connected Home (Hive) who spoke with David Hatcher, Senior Partner at Baringa, and took us on Hive’s start-up journey: the company’s aspiration is to bring technology and excitement into energy. Five years after launch, Hive now has over 1.5m customers who use the family of smart products and services. This success is down to the fact that Centrica spotted early on that technology would allow consumers to control their home energy management, an aspect they had very little influence over in the past. This, and the fact that smart technology has completely changed consumer behaviour presented a huge opportunity. Jo also emphasised the importance of gaining consumers’ trust and how established organisations have a huge advantage over start-ups in this field. As speed of innovation increases and resource limitations create boundaries for what can be done within an organisation, strong partnerships and ecosystems are key. Jo’s conclusion “The key is not what you sell but how it all links together.”

David Ferguson, Head of Digital Innovation, EDF shared his thoughts on the impact the ‘next wave’ of digital technologies will have on the energy sector, and illustrated this with AI-augmented engineers, digital twins that help prepare for engineering tasks, and neural networks and deep learning technologies that allow EDF to create an inventory of a power station with the push of a button. He explained how ‘unapologetically technology-driven organisations’ embed innovation in their organisations: they learn how to master the technology and then seek possible applications and use cases. David’s outlook into the future was that humans need to work out how to work alongside automation and technology, and leverage it for those tasks where technology has an advantage. We must however concentrate on, and perfect those tasks where we have an advantage over technology, such as collaboration and creativity.

 

Future Energy Leaders Forum | London

Tuesday, 5 June 2018

Blockchain was at the centre of our inaugural event, and we welcomed Jojo Hubbart, COO of Electron.

She revealed a side of blockchain technology that we may not have seen before and outlined the technology’s collaboration potential across the energy sector. Given the increasingly fragmented nature of our market, this collaboration requires a coordination of data frameworks, an alignment on new market rules, a shared vision of maximising the flexibility inherent in new energy assets – and just as importantly, we need to map out the journey to get there.

Tony Cocker, former Chief Executive and Chairman of E.ON, took us on a journey through the ‘three timescales of change’ that he had observed in the industry: the 90’s characterised by privatisations, energy liberalisation, massive cost reductions, vertical integration, and the liberalisation of the residential retail markets; followed by a decade of M&A activity, opening of European markets, and energy policy being driven by carbon emission targets. Our current decade has brought customer-first thinking, digital technologies, and a maturing and decline of cost of solar and battery technology. No doubt, the next decade will continue to be challenging - and rewarding.
