Take Opportunities to Gain Buy-in to your Energy Projects


The aim of this presentation is to share my approaches and outline the key learning points I have identified in securing successful bids and persuading directors, managers and operational staff to engage with energy and environment issues. Including:
· Knowing your organisation’s legislation, systems of work and funding criteria to define or restrict your approach to delivering energy projects.
· Understanding your organisation and its limitations to provide opportunities to re-assess your approach and gain buy in from others in the organisation.
· Knowing when to refocus or halt your efforts.
· Tapping in to existing partnerships and developing new ones.
· Using others in your team, empowered champions and persuading the right people at the right time to communicate the energy agenda.
· New legislation as a tool to reinvigorate your campaigns, revisit your business cases, bring in new recruits or up skill existing team members.
