AN ENERGY boss will discuss how the UK can keep the lights on at a public lecture in the region next month (Thursday, February 6).

Ian Marchant, former chief executive of SSE and now chairman of Infinis Energy, will reflect on 25 years in the energy industry and discuss issues and challenges facing the energy sector.

He said: “I have been fortunate to work in a vital and fascinating industry, energy, for 25 years and continue to be involved in many aspects.

“Our modern way of life is almost completely dependent on the provision of reliable and affordable energy and as a result rarely a day goes past without the energy industry making headlines.

“I am pleased to have this opportunity to take a step back and look at some of these issues and hopefully make a constructive contribution to the energy debate.”

The Durham Energy Institute lecture will take place at Durham University’s Calman Learning Centre, off South Road, Durham, on Thursday, February 6, at 6.30pm.

Tickets are free, but must be booked online at eventbrite.co.uk

All the companies have great ideas as to how to save money on your bills.
At the end of the day i have spent a lot of money on my property to achieve a result which is not an ideal one but will have to do.
The biggest problem for most old houses in the North of England is there is NO gap between the inner and outer brick work?
I have BG came to my property numerous occasions to be told they can inject insulation on my property BUT when they arrive make there inspection they decline to do it on grounds that seem odd. Surely there must be an answer to this dilemma as these houses need insulating. Are they getting public cash for just making the calls with out doing any work me thinks that could be the case
