Event Programme:

Local Low Carbon Innovators
We'll hear from three local businesses who have recently launched new energy-saving products, including an energy storage system, weather sensitive heating controls and a device that uses excess electricity from solar PV to heat water.


Case Study: Crawley Borough Council
The Facilities Managers at Crawley Borough Council and Freedom Leisure, who operate the K2 Leisure Centre, will share their reasons behind and experiences installing solar PV at the Town Hall and a combined heat and power unit at the leisure centre.

 

UK Energy Policy Update
Terry McGivern, Head of Industry Engagement at the Institute for Sustainability, will provide an insight into UK energy policy, as well as details of the Institute's 'dragons' den' style competition with Sainsbury's and the Better Building Partnership in which SMEs have the chance to pitch their energy efficiency ideas to potential buyers.

 

Low Carbon Finance
A look at the different ways to raise finance for low carbon product development or energy efficiency project installations, including details about the government's £10 million Energy Entrepreneurs Fund.

Networking
Meet like-minded businesses interested in energy efficiency over refreshments and a sandwich lunch.
