Next steps for energy efficiency policy in England - issues for businesses and suppliers, and domestic priorities post-Green Deal

Tuesday, 21st March 2017

Central London


This seminar will discuss the future for energy efficiency schemes in businesses and homes across England, and next steps for energy efficiency policy.

With the conclusion of the updated Energy Companies Obligation due in March, and the CRC scheme set to end by 2019, this conference offers a timely opportunity for delegates to engage on the direction of Government policy in energy efficiency.

Delegates will assess the opportunities for improving commercial energy efficiency in energy-intensive industries and businesses, and the future for industrial decarbonisation and sector sustainability. It will also provide a timely opportunity to discuss latest trends in sustainable technology, such as smart meters and electrification of heating systems, and their contribution to both domestic and commercial energy efficiency schemes.

Additional sessions will focus on priorities for reducing fuel poverty in the UK’s most vulnerable areas - including the role of energy suppliers, as well as sustainable house building in promoting efficiency savings.
