The 45-minute session will air at 1pm (GMT) on 10 March, and is being hosted in association with Carbon Trust and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).


With industry responsible for around a fifth of UK greenhouse gas emissions, the deployment of innovative energy efficiency technologies and systems is critical to improving the energy intensity of industrial processes.

Therefore, this session will break down how these technological innovations can be utilised to enhance your energy efficiency approach and decarbonise industrial processes. The session will include two expert presenters and a live audience Q&A.

The masterclass is supported by the Carbon Trust, which is managing the BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) – a programme which assists partnerships between developers of innovative energy efficient technologies and industrial companies, by funding the demonstration of those technologies on-site.


Discussion points:

  • Developing cutting-edge innovation to improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes
  • Identifying which energy efficiency technologies are right for you
  • How Government-industry partnerships can support carbon reduction programmes
