Event Purpose

A day of energy innovation and co-creation, SPARK! is the flagship event of the year for the Net-Zero Leaders Club. Hosted as part of edie’s Net-Zero November campaign of content and events, this full-day event creates the time and space for energy and sustainability changemakers to connect, collaborate and seize the moment of net-zero.

The primary purpose of the day is to spark new ideas and actions among the Club’s membership base of corporate net-zero leaders. The unique event will include a keynote presentation and panel discussion from an array of business and climate thought-leaders, a networking lunch, and five collaborative roundtables that will see like-minded peers co-create solutions to key decarbonisation challenges and discuss exciting new opportunities.

Attendees will have an opportunity to choose to take part in two workshop discussions from these five themes.

WORKSHOP A: Strategy & innovation

WORKSHOP B: Buildings & efficiency

WORKSHOP C: Smart grids & Flexibility

WORKSHOP D: People & process
