Energy cost control and storage are some of the greatest problems facing all educational institutions. It is vital that universities and colleges are able to transition to a low carbon, sustainable economy through the use of renewables and new technology.

This free seminar will explore areas such as energy storage, grid connection, renewables, carbon management and new technologies. It has been designed to examine the problems facing energy managers and share solutions and expertise from other institutions. 

There will be various speakers for the seminar including from the University of Liverpool, Nottingham Trent University, Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Warwick.

One of our members, Clean Power Solutions is offering a case study using their own solution to the problems. The aim is for participants to see the practical example and explore carbon management planning.

We are pleased to announce an additional speaker who will be outlining the implications of COP21 for the sector.
