Reducing energy use makes perfect business sense. It saves money, enhances the reputation of your business and promotes the fight against climate change. Ensure your business understands the opportunity, can build a robust business case and secure the finance to implement the project.

Presented by an expert from the Technology and Delivery team at the Carbon Trust, this session will explains to businesses the benefits of this technology as well as covering some example case studies and information on how to apply to the Green Business Fund Capital Contribution for those that are eligible.

As the UK moves towards more sustainable and efficient practices of waste management, otherwise wasted energy can be recovered by a variety of existing and new technologies. Existing waste streams can also be better utilised using thermal and non-thermal technology to recover or generate heat, gas or electricity as well as reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

The business case for investing in energy efficient or low carbon technology is often compelling and sometimes overwhelming. Despite this there remain a number of major barriers which mean that organisations either delay or do not implement projects that would help to reduce bills, cut carbon and provide a rapid return on investment.

These barriers tend to fall into one of three categories:

  • Lack of awareness
  • Lack of confidence
  • Lack of funds

This webinar for small businesses explains how energy from waste is recovered and generated, provides tips on how to identify opportunities within your business and discusses the next steps to take to implement a waste to energy project.
