Held in partnership with the University of Nottingham’s Energy Institute the 2023 Midlands Energy Summit will explore how businesses, academia and policy makers can come together to ensure that clean growth underpins our future economic landscape.

At a time where energy cost and security remain one of the top concerns for the business community, we will explore how we can accelerate the adoption of clean energy technologies and a move towards cleaner new energy industries.

The Midlands has all the components to lead the development of future energy provision, storage and distribution, with cutting edge developments in energy creation through Fission, Fusion and Hydrogen. We are home to businesses operating at the cutting-edge of the practical application and global roll out of future energy technologies, as well as Universities, who are at the global center of developing expertise in the commercial application of nuclear and hydrogen technologies.
