X Energy 2017

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

13:00 - 19:30

On 24th October in London, The Crowd will bring together 160+ senior energy, sustainability, property, and facilities professionals for X Energy 2017.

This impactful half day event will explore the intersection of energy and tech, inspiring and connecting the leading minds from a mix of energy intensive sectors.

We'll explore how disruptive technologies, new energy management strategies and financing models are exponentially changing energy programmes in large organisations, and share knowledge and latest thinking amongst the community. The programme on the day is a mix of inspiring keynotes, high level panels, peer roundtable discussions and structured networking.

Last year’s event began with a brilliant short keynote from Mustafa Suleyman, Co- founder of Google’s DeepMind, on “how Artificial Intelligence can have a positive impact on energy and beyond” (you can watch it here).

The audience for X Energy is carefully curated, with senior attendees invited based on their role type and their organisations energy use. Please drop kate@thecrowd.me an email if you’d like to find out more, or apply for a place below.
