The North West has long been at the epicentre of global energy innovation – harnessing first coal, then atomic energy, and now innovating to produce sustainable means of powering local communities and reducing our impact on the planet.

As global leaders gather at the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference, Power To The People: Enabling A Smart Energy Transition will examine the future for energy production and use in the North West.

This is your opportunity to join the people and organisations leading the charge towards net zero in discussions that could influence the lives of more than 7.3 million citizens in the region, and many more around the world.
