Green & Renewable Energy – Breakfast Seminar

Green & Renewable Energy – Breakfast Seminar

We are pleased to announce that the Utilitywise team will be presenting at a Green & Renewable Breakfast Seminar on 19th June alongside RBS and Lombard.

At a time when fuel prices are substantially increasing and with impending carbon reduction penalties for those not in compliance, any business with high energy costs that chooses to pursue green solutions can see real benefit to their cashflow. By taking control of your energy, water and fuel costs and consumption it is possible to free up funds and gain a real competitive advantage in your marketplace.

The Utilitywise speakers on the day are Jon Ferris – Head of Energy Markets and Richard Tandy – Energy Solutions Manager.

Jon will provide a high-level overview of EMR and how the generation mix is shifting to more renewable energy sources. These changes in turn create opportunities for business willing to take part, so Jon will outline practical steps businesses can take to benefit.

Richard will discuss Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) – what it is, who it affects you and what you should be doing. He will also cover energy audits in general, so whether you’re an SME or major energy user we can outline what auditing steps you can take to identify savings.
