Our dedicated Conference for the Scottish Public Sector takes place in Glasgow on 8th June 2017.  This brings together managers and practitioners from public sector organisations with responsibility for energy, environment, sustainability and/or estates and asset management. The focus of the day is on practical knowledge-sharing, solution-showcasing and peer-to-peer networking. Delegates will attend from across the Scottish public sector community and beyond, including local authorities, universities and colleges, the NHS, government departments and agencies, housing associations and more.

The conference agenda will feature real, practical examples of methods and solutions that delegates can apply to their own challenges. It’s an invaluable opportunity to network with colleagues from across the public sector, and the Conference will enable you to tailor your own agenda through a choice of plenary and workshop sessions.

Topics to be covered at our 2017 Scottish Public Sector conference include the following, delivered with illustrations from best practice case studies from across Scotland and beyond:

  • Engaging multiple stakeholders for success in energy projects
  • Identifying, quantifying & implementing energy efficiency and low carbon solutions at scale
  • Decentralised, flexible low carbon local energy/heat systems
  • Energy Performance Contracting through Scotland’s dedicated Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency Framework and Project Support Unit
  • Socioeconomic & financial modelling for investment and funding

Speakers will be drawn from the public sector, thought leaders and academia – Professor Dave Reay, Chair in Carbon Management & Education, School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh will deliver a keynote presentation on the latest insights from climate change science, and other keynote speakers will discuss the implications for the public sector of the Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy and draft Climate Change Plan, both published earlier this year.

The public sector has been at the vanguard of Scotland’s commitment to cutting carbon and delivering national targets. It directly employs almost a quarter of the Scottish workforce – over half a million people. It also has a huge potential influence over buildings, infrastructure, the private sector and local communities. The Scottish Government has adopted ambitious targets for the reduction of carbon emissions that require substantial contributions from all sectors of the economy. This Conference is part of the Carbon Trust’s dedicated focus on supporting the Scottish Public Sector to meet these targets, addressing challenges and providing solutions, innovations and best practice.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Only registered guests from the public sector may attend, please register here.

The Carbon Trust Public Sector Conference was a positive platform in which like-minded businesses and local authorities could discuss and review on how the future changes in policy will affect business and helped pass on knowledge, advice and process. As a company focused on the community benefits of sustainable waste and energy projects, Public Power Solutions were encouraged by the range of stakeholders attending, the quality of the speakers and the innovative thinking behind the event.
