5 solution providers showcasing a broad range of low carbon and energy efficient solutions and services. A unique opportunity to fast explore new technology, systems and services available right now.
Government organisations have a vast and varied property portfolio. The complexity of the estate can make it very difficult to both manage and control energy consumption as well as taking steps to reduce this consumption. This session looks at some exemplar case studies from Central Government departments to show how they are tackling the Net zero dilemma and how they […]
Data centres are responsible for up to 4% of the world’s energy consumption, and that will only grow as the Internet and the cloud expands. There are several new technologies that can significantly reduce data centre energy consumption, but which are best? This talk looks at the best options.
In multi-storey buildings, floors contribute about 60% of their total mass. As much as half of this material is wasted as a result of over-specification in floor structural design to manage risks due to unknown loads and structural behaviour. The main driver in this wasteful over-design is not safety (against collapse) but serviceability, chiefly avoiding excessive floor vibrations in normal […]
Over 90% of businesses fail to measure their full carbon emissions (BCG). Inaccurate or incomplete emissions measurements will not only prevent your businesses from meeting climate targets – they also leave you exposed to risks like legal non-compliance and allegations of greenwashing. In this presentation, Normative will explain how accurate and comprehensive carbon accounting can enable your business to become […]
Leveraging Industrial & Commercial sites to increase GB electricity grid flexibility and create new revenue streams for under-utilised assets
Other panellists to be confirmed soon. Embodied Carbon is becoming an increasingly important subject. It impacts Net Zero Carbon targets that companies in the built environment have set themselves and it’s already impacting planning permission, so it is likely to be included in Building Regulations in the near future. The campaign for it to be included it as Part Z has been […]
EcoSync introduced our solution into an accommodation building at 68 Banbury Rd Oxford and compared to next door 70 Banbury Rd – which is identical and didn’t have our solution.

A detailed discussion with aggregators and industrial and commercial demand side response providers, looking at the direction of travel for I&C’s involvement in flexibility markets and what the future may look like for providers.
In the drive to reduce operational carbon emissions from buildings, focus has for a long time been on making buildings more energy efficient, and perhaps inadvertently favoured replacement of old building stock rather than upgrade. In recent years with a much greater focus shifting to embodied carbon of the construction materials, the balance sheet has been re-drawn giving retrofit projects […]

Cees Jan will present an overview of Danone’s carbon footprint […]
Take full control of your ‘plug in’ energy use for the first time, with market leaders MK Electric and Trend Systems.
Carbon neutrality refers to achieving a net carbon footprint of zero. Carbon offset credits are the primary tool for achieving such reductions. However, carbon offsetting should be only considered when all other approaches/routes to reduce carbon emissions have been exhausted. This may include which may include consumption reduction technologies, behavioural programmes, green procurement strategies, and renewable technologies. However, it is […]
How to create and maintain carbon reduction solutions for the built environment, driving towards a Net Zero future.

With all the uncertainty around the energy market currently it’s hard to know what really is happening. Josh will outline the key issues that are causing energy prices to rise. He will also explain what the Energy Bill Relief Scheme is and how to know if you are eligible. Josh will also answer the question in everyone’s minds… will energy […]
The session will explore how ABB and Severn Trent work together to identify energy saving opportunities, justify investment and verify effectiveness of projects. An introduction into how this relationship works and details of a particular case study will be shared along with information about initiatives to encourage industry wide collaboration on energy efficiency.
It has been argued that ESOS delivers little value to participants and in many ways is seen as a necessary evil. Phase 3 is different. Why? Because not only will it help to combat the impacts of the energy crisis but it could also act as an organisation’s first step on its Net Zero journey and this presentation will explain […]
Living with V2H- an installer / user reflections on the benefits and savings of vehicle-to-home usages
This addresses a number of factors highlighted within the BEIS current consultation on Review of Electricity Market Arrangements, notably: ‘Rewarding customers whose behaviour benefits the electricity system’ ‘change consumption patterns to match supply’ We will explore a real-life installation of vehicle-to-building technologies and how this has facilitated a maximising of on-site generation usage and shifting imported demand to 80% off […]
