Energy efficiency is a no brainer – so why is it not happening?

What are the opportunities and barriers for energy savings and where could the current trends in energy efficiency take us.

Energy efficiency has been a key part of the UK’s strategy to meet our greenhouse gas commitments as well as supporting the government’s approach to tackle the well-publicised “energy trilemma”. However, the uptake of energy efficiency whilst on an improving trend, represents a fraction of the market potential, with a further £4bn of savings still on offer.

Andrew Todd, Director and Head of Energy and Resource Management at Verco Limited, will discuss the types of opportunities that exist drawing on real life examples from breweries to commercial real estate.

He will explore the barriers that prevent these savings being realised and give his views on some of the current trends in energy efficiency and where this could take us.

I-SEE seminars are open for all to attend. You are welcome to join us for prior discussions and afternoon tea in the Wessex Restaurant from 4pm to 4:25pm.
