Now on demand: edie’s masterclass on Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting for business

The masterclass will be available to watch on-demand afterwards for those who have registered

This online masterclass helps sustainability and energy professionals get to grips with Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR), which came into force in April 2019 and affects almost 12,000 businesses across the country.

This 45-minute masterclass will explain what the SECR framework is and who it affects? What exactly do companies need to report and how should they best report it? And how can this new framework be utilised in a way that drives energy efficiency improvements with economic and environmental benefits?


Brought to you in association with commercial energy consultants Inspired Energy, this 45-minute masterclass will give you everything you need to know about SECR and its potential benefits – all in under an hour.

Inspired Energy is the only Third Party Intermediary (TPI) that has to comply with SECR. The organisation does not have to report until the beginning of 2021, but is starting its SECR journey early. During this webinar, Inspired Energy representatives talk about the issues that they face, covering transport data, landlord properties, changing portfolios and global issues.

The masterclass includes a mixture of presentations – explaining the SECR framework – and a Q&A session – which allowed key questions to be asked directly to our expert speakers. The session also incorporates end-user case studies, showcasing the real-life impact that SECR has had so far.
