Equans also share the story of how Mina supported the transition of their own fleet, delivering a fair and accurate way to pay for EV […]
The industrial revolution took 25-100 years for the benefits to reach the average person. We cannot afford that this time round. The word transition suggests an orderly journey from one state to another but there are only radical futures left now. Either we dramatically change society or a changing climate and collapsing natural world will change us…and not in a […]
In time of crises, our panellists will make an attempt to bring clarity in chaos in a constructive and engaging debate.
The ongoing challenges of the energy transition, compounded by the current energy price crisis and concerns over availability and stability, drives home the importance of businesses seizing control of their energy with a robust management strategy.

Gone are the days when the organisation energy manager could work alone. Today, energy conservation is the work of everyone. For many organisations, or communities, energy management requires a cooperative team incorporating many different disciplines to create positive changes across all departments. The purpose and key benefit of forming an energy management team is to engage the various departments or work units […]
The scale of potential future flooding and coastal change is significant. Despite the positive work the Environment Agency and other risk management authorities are already doing, a different philosophy needs to be adopted. While it will never be possible to prevent all flooding and coastal change, the current approach has been developed responding to previous floods rather than to meet […]
