We are proud to introduce its 10th Annual Energy from Waste Conference, due to take place on the 6th - 7th December 2017 in Central London.

The Energy from Waste (EfW) industry is a fundamental cog of a modern nations infrastructure and energy provision. Not only this, but the increasing move towards greener and sustainable regulations makes this an ever important focus for the energy and waste sectors alike. In respect of this importance, the Energy from Waste conference this year will look at the impact of energy regulations and government policy on the UK market; experiences from the UK EfW sector and specific projects; the financing future beyond PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) and PFI (Private-Finance Initiatives) in light of the reduction in funding and recent funding pullouts; the Energy from Waste projects in Europe and further afield and lessons from these experiences of mature markets and emerging markets; new opportunities away from the arguably saturated electricity market through new technologies and feedstock availability; and the future outlook for the industry.

Benefits of Attending

  • Explore the impact of energy regulations and government policy on the UK market
  • Benefit from the experiences from the UK market and specific projects;
  • Consider the financing future beyond PPP (Public-Private Partnerships) and PFI (Private-Finance Initiatives);
  • Engage with Energy from Waste projects in Europe and experiences of mature markets;
  • Gain insight into experiences in the international market and emerging markets;
  • Discuss new technologies, approaches and outlook for the industry.

Due to the fact that the fundamental foundations of the Energy from Waste (EfW) industry are changing - given the recent political climate, the changes in financing and funding opportunities and the deepening of the need for greener infrastructure in today's reality - the industry is constantly evolving parallel to these developments.

The conference will not solely be addressing these changes, but also provide a specific attention to international markets, especially those further afield and consider their challenges and solutions to EfW projects and technology. Finally, the conference will also address the fundamental changes to the funding associated with Energy from Waste and how this is impacting the market to move further towards merchant waste projects.
