About this event

Sustainability trends are challenging businesses and industries to consider how they can create long-term value by scrutinising the way they operate and the impact that might have on the environment and on future generations. It is also increasingly recognised that a sustainable business has competitive advantage thanks to the cost savings and enhanced corporate reputation that come with an effective sustainability strategy.

At the same time, the rise of renewable energy sources and distributed energy resources are providing large energy consumers with the opportunity to rethink the way they produce, procure and use energy. Renewable sources of energy such as solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, solutions including combined heat and power (CHP) generation and energy storage can present cost-effective ways to help businesses and industries to transition to a low carbon economy.

These technologies will accelerate the decarbonisation of the transport sector and are vital in the UK’s road to net-zero.

A year on from Philips Heathcote's first Thames Valley presentation, and an extraordinary year at that, he updates us on what progress is being made and what effects, both positive and negative the challenges we have faced over the last year have had.
