45-minute masterclass: Evolving your energy strategy to meet net-zero carbon targets - edie.net
<

With an ever-growing number of organisations announcing new net-zero carbon commitments, this edie masterclass will equip energy and sustainability professionals with the insight and inspiration they need to evolve their decarbonisation strategies in 2020.

Brought to you in association with energy supplier SmartestEnergy, the 45-minute session will provide much-needed context for making a net-zero carbon commitment, and will break down how to choose the right energy options for your business on the road to net-zero.

The masterclass will also feature a real-life case study from property consultancy JLL, which recently announced a commitment to become a net-zero emission business by 2030. JLL will explain how it is working with SmartestEnergy to adapt and enhance its energy strategy to meet that goal.

We will conclude with a live audience Q&A, allowing registrants to ask specific questions to SmartestEnergy and JLL about the key energy challenges and opportunities facing businesses now and in the future.

Masterclass discussion points:

  • Building net zero carbon targets into your energy strategy
  • The UK’s changing energy generation mix and what it means for you
  • Renewable energy and distributed generation: Working out which option is right for you
