  • Do you know where energy and resources are used within your business?
  • Do you know how much your equipment costs to run?
  • Are you trying to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions?
  • Would you like to adopt renewable energy or storage systems?

If these questions are relevant to your business please join us for a two-day workshop on energy measurement, monitoring, generation and storage.

Knowing where energy is used within your business is the first step to reducing energy use. Results can include lower costs, increased efficiency and a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions; all of which can help to protect you from future energy costs and improve the image of your business at a time when environmental credentials are becoming more important to customers.

If you are a growing and innovative company, interested in how businesses can transform themselves as we move into a new energy future, then this event is for you.

The event is hosted by our Energy Innovation & Collaboration team alongside invited experts.

Eligibility Criteria

This workshop is open to SMEs who are based in the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire regions. Due to the way we are funded attendees will be required to fill in an enrolment form, this can be completed during the course of the workshop. 

Businesses outside of the region who are interested in attending will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please email us in the first instance with your request.
