SPARK 2022: what to expect

As emissions targets are becoming increasingly urgent, energy prices have reached record levels and Europe is grappling with energy security crises. This has caused huge challenges for all sectors which produce and consume energy to transition to low emission or zero emission alternatives while keeping costs down. New business models, technologies, funding mechanisms, and policy incentives will be key to achieving a sustainable future.

We need to enable sector coupling, to talk, debate and do business across industries and geographical regions.

The upcoming SPARK conference in London on 21-22 June will confront these challenges by bringing together thousands of senior leaders from across power generation, energy transmission and distribution, utilities, government, transport, and industry. Eight key themes covered at the conference will include business models, digital innovation, flexible grids, decarbonising transport, power innovation, decarbonising buildings, energy management, and hydrogen and green gas.

SPARK will be the place for innovators and leaders in the energy sector to meet and shape the future of the energy transition. Over 100 start-ups will exhibit in the innovation zone, each with a unique and cutting-edge solution which could revolutionise the sector. Here you will be able to find new and existing customers, develop partnerships, and discover potential investment opportunities. Delegates will learn from 350 outstanding speakers who are leading the energy transition into the future.

ESMIG’s Managing Director, Tomas Llobet, will join the line-up alongside some amazing speakers including:

  • Catharina Sikow-Magny, Director, Internal Energy Market, European Commission
  • Frank Meyer, CEO, ON Italia
  • Emma Illingworth, Head of People Transformation, Ovo Energy
  • Rémy Garaude-Verdier, Head of European Affairs, Enedis
  • Kia Marie Jerichau, Director, Ancillary Services, Energinet
