Once again elemental will be hosting several content theatres at InstallerSHOW, with expert speakers discussing the hot topics related to the decarbonisation of buildings. There will also be case studies and informative Q&As with organisations and individuals who are the leading the way on the route to net zero.

There will be plenty of inspiring speakers over the three days, with four keynotes now confirmed.

Our confirmed keynotes so far include:

  • Ed Gillespie – Ed Gillespie is a director of Greenpeace UK, communications specialist, serial entrepreneur, and futurist. Gillespie believes that the future won’t simply be an extension of today. When considering what the future might be, he thinks we should stretch the idea of what we might consider impossible. He feels that future changes will see some jobs destroyed, but many new ones created. A trustee of Energy Revolution, Gillespie is also actively involved in several pioneering businesses as a director or investor, from Zero Carbon Food to Raw Bottles.

  • Gary Neville – the former footballer and TV pundit is well known for his enthusiasm for energy-efficient buildings, plus his concerns about the number of people in fuel poverty and poor housing. In an interview with Steven Bartlett, Neville said he was “offended by the fact that we can’t raise the standards at the highest level and the fact that we can’t look after people and make sure that everyone’s got a house to be able to live in that’s of a comfortable size and in the area they want to live in”. In the same interview, he said he’d joined the Labour party because he doesn’t understand why he “can’t fight for people who can’t afford their energy bills this winter just because we have a bank account that’s more than people would like it to be”.
