Big industry names have already signed up for a national energy conference set to unfold in the North East next year.

Energy: A Balanced Future will take place on March 10 and 11 at Sage Newcastle, hosted by NOF Energy, the business development organisation for the oil, gas, nuclear, offshore and renewables sectors.

The event is already attracting some of the biggest names in the industry and among the VIPs already confirmed are DONG Energy, SNC-Lavalin, Technip, Siemens, Dana Petroleum, Wood Group PSN, Petrobras, BP, Foster Wheeler Energy, GE Oil & Gas and GE Hitachi.

Caroline Lofthouse, Business Development Manager at NOF Energy, said: “The chance to network with the biggest names in the business is attracting firms of the highest calibre, which is a very encouraging sign for the future growth of the industry.

“This is our fifth conference and with more than 400 delegates already expected and five months still to go it is clear the sector is as eager as ever to address the major issues and that Energy: A Balanced Future is the perfect place to find solutions.”

Hot topics this year will include the need for a balanced mix of energy supplies, covering oil, gas, nuclear, offshore renewables, shale gas and for the first time, future energies.

Alongside the conference, supported by gold sponsors Arefco, Draeger and Teesside University, will be an exhibition that will double in size compared to previous years, featuring members of the supply chain showcasing the skills, products and services offered to the energy sector.
