Wales Public Sector Conference

Wales is a small country with big green ambitions. Through the Environment (Wales) Act, and the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act, the Welsh Government has introduced some of the world’s most progressive legislation on sustainable development and the management of natural resources. Ambitious carbon reduction targets have been set and the Welsh Government are currently in the process of designing their first ever carbon budgets.

The public sector will be at the forefront of helping Wales deliver on these commitments. Given the challenges this presents for public leaders, Carbon Trust are focused on providing support to enable the Welsh public sector to understand the best way to meet their responsibilities and turn those national ambitions into a practical reality.

Following on from the success of last year’s Wales Conference, the Carbon Trust will be returning to Aberystwyth to host another dedicated Conference for their engaged clients and communities within the Welsh Public Sector.

Carbon Trust Wales Public Sector Conference

With 60+ senior level estates/asset managers, sustainability managers and energy managers expected to attend, it’s set to be a knowledge-sharing, solution-showcasing and peer-to-peer networking event. Delegates will be an extensive representation of the Carbon Trust’s engaged public sector community, from the full sphere of public sector organisations including local authorities, government departments, housing associations, NHS, higher education and schools.

The Carbon Trust Wales Public Sector Conference agenda will feature real, practical examples of solutions that delegates can apply to their own 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 sessions.

The theme of this year’s event is overcoming the technical and financial challenges associated with cutting carbon emissions, driving green growth and creating a sustainable future for Wales.

Topics to be covered at this year’s conference include:

  • Deployment of energy storage technology
  • Financing energy efficiency solutions through the Wales Funding Programme  
  • Delivering energy efficiency at scale – Re:fit Cymru Programme
  • City scale district heating - including a case study from Cardiff City Council
  • New commercial models for large scale renewable energy generation projects post subsidy
  • Energy efficient refurbishment of old building stock
  • Perspectives from Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales on decarbonisation and green growth
