Against the backdrop of political change in 2015, the Carbon Trust Public Sector Conference agenda will feature real, practical examples of solutions that you can apply to your own specific challenges. An invaluable opportunity to network with colleagues from across the public sector, the Conference will enable you to tailor your own agenda through a choice of plenary, workshop and roundtable sessions, all of which are designed to give you knowledge and tools to help you save money and carbon.
Jonathan Reynolds, MP, Shadow Minister for Energy and Climate Change, will open the conference and share his views on the importance of the role the public sector must take to manage the risks of climate change. Matthew Bell, Chief Executive of the Committee for Climate Change will also be speaking.
This CPD accredited event will feature the following dedicated streams:
- Distributed energy and heat networks – understanding the role of the public sector in establishing a successful future for decentralised energy
- Energy Performance Contracting – contracts, best practice and suppliers: an independent view of Energy Performance Contracting and managing built assets.
- Low Carbon Cities – partner engagement, leadership and smart technologies to enable sustainable cities in the UK and beyond.
- Climate Change Adaptation – managing risks to health and to public service delivery.
We are proud to announce that GE Lighting will, once again, be headline sponsor at this event and will be on site to discuss challenges, requirements and solutions for intelligent lighting for commercial buildings and city wide projects.
The full agenda will be released in due course, however if you have a case study you believe would be of interest to the conference delegation, please contact us on email@example.com
This event is only open to those working for a public sector organisation including central and local government, the NHS, the emergency services, schools, further education establishments and universities, and housing associations. The event is always heavily subscribed, so if you are tasked with an energy, sustainability, climate change, carbon reduction, asset or facilities management role within the UK public sector, please register now to avoid disappointment.
