11th Mar 2022

Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NI Chamber) and SONI are hosting a special edition of the Energy Forum, focusing specifically on energy costs and the impact on local businesses. It will take place online on Thursday 24 March at 9.30am.

With price hikes impacting production, supply and logistics and significant concern about what the future global energy market looks like, the event is designed to provide practical guidance to major energy users in all sectors.

Richard Ramsey, Chief Economist at Ulster Bank will help unpack the macro-economic climate, discussing what global emergencies mean for businesses and energy users in Northern Ireland. John Durkan, Sustainability and Environmental Manager at ABP Food Group will provide a case study example, discussing how the food processor has made substantial cost savings through energy efficiencies.

In addition, Peter McClenaghan Director of Infrastructure and Sustainability at the Consumer Council will discuss how the organisation represents the interests of businesses on energy issues, while Daniel Purdy, Energy and Resource Efficiency Manager at Invest NI will cover the range of practical support available including consultancy, resource matching and grants.
