The IoD’s April breakfast, sponsored by Butterfield, will explore Guernsey’s energy sector and its resilience to responding to global changes – particularly in the context of current geopolitical instability.
The event will host a panel of business leaders in the local energy industry, including Alex Herschel, Managing Director at Guernsey Gas, Alan Bates, Chief Executive at Guernsey Electricity and Justin Bellinger, Chief Executive at Sure in Guernsey. The panel moderator will be Wendy Dorey, IoD Guernsey’s Chair.
The event will explore how the current geopolitical landscape is affecting decision-making in the energy sector. The event will also analyse the impact decarbonisation is having on the States of Guernsey’s Energy Policy, which aims to adopt net-zero emissions by 2050. To reach this goal, the industry needs to undergo a similar transformation that the telecoms sector experienced 20 years ago. The panel will identify and discuss the learnings from this transformation.
