Available on demand: Energy efficiency 2.0 webinar for Net-Zero November

The webinar will be available to watch on demand afterwards for those who registered

Guness discussed Direct Line Group’s seven-year energy efficiency strategy – recently shortlisted for an edie Sustainability Leaders Award – and the various challenges the firm had in scaling up its programme. It is now available to watch on demand.


For some time, energy efficiency has been seen as one of the long term ‘quick wins’ of sustainability strategies and target meeting – but it is often overlooked for more technological solutions which can be expensive, resource intensive and difficult to put in place.

But when surveyed on the most important issue for their companies, energy leaders consistently placed energy efficiency and behaviour change as one of the biggest opportunities for their job roles.

This webinar, supported by BiU, takes the sustainability professional through the best approaches to energy efficiency in the 21st century, whether that be building fabric, energy management systems, or behavioural change, hearing from experts across a variety of sectors who have implemented such schemes to drastically reduce energy use and their carbon footprint.

Delivered as part of edie’s Net Zero November programme of content, this webinar will look at how energy efficiency can be an integral part of delivering a net-zero carbon strategy, and remain a key element of sustainability programmes.
