The Climate Change Act commits the UK Government to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. Incentives to help reach this target include Feed-in Tariffs, the Renewable Heat Incentive, Green Deal and CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme. These create opportunities to make savings through greater energy efficiency and generate income streams through the use of zero and low carbon technologies such as solar and CHP. To maximize energy savings and income generation, a robust evidence base is needed to plan strategic options and to communicate potential to stakeholders. Geographic analysis and visualisation can play a pivotal role in creating this and disseminating it to different audiences. This presentation will show how the strategic planning of energy use and generation is inherently spatial in nature and cannot be done without the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Topics covered will include: - Creating a property level evidence base to support decisions making - Delivering the evidence base to stakeholders - Promoting opportunities to customers/citizens Delegates will learn how tools inherent within GIS can be used with methodologies and approaches from experts in low carbon and energy efficiency to derive the information required to make evidence based decisions which justify expenditure and maximize the return in terms of revenue and carbon reduction. Examples will be drawn on work undertaken by industry experts, Esri UK and Local Authorities including Nottingham City Council. This presentation should be attended by those with an interest in the strategic planning and mapping of energy demand and future generation.

Proprietary and vegetative combination employed for supermarket's surface water run off

Leicester City Council has worked collaboratively with Asda, ISG and ACO Water Management to achieve a first in sustainable urban drainage within a supermarket development. The solution is integrated drainage that combines proprietary and vegetative systems to achieve effective surface water management, whilst introducing a level of biodiversity never attained before on a retail development. Working to strict planning guidelines that required two swale inlets to be incorporated onto the site, the solution moved away from a the more common permeable paving to achieve a cost effective, near to surface solution that required minimal ground works. As a result, stormwater is successfully managed on or near the surface, in an area that would have typically been highly impermeable.
