Britain has some of the oldest building stock in Europe. Our draughty homes are poorly insulated, leaking heat and using up energy. As consumers, we pay a high price for inefficient housing – and so does the planet. A quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions comes from the energy we use to heat our homes and a similar amount comes from our businesses, industry and workplaces.
The Green Deal is a revolutionary new government programme intended to bring our buildings up to date across the UK. But does it represent significant opportunities for businesses? How can retailers, tradespeople, energy companies and investors have access to this huge and growing market? What are the implications for jobs and skills across the supply chain – and across the Milton Keynes and South East Midlands region?
Join us for this event to discover how businesses and consumers can now make the energy efficiency improvements that best suit their situation.
- Discover how to get energy efficiency improvements without having to front up the cash.
- Businesses will learn how to provide the capital, and get their money back via the energy bill.
- Find out how millions of homes and businesses could benefit from improvements under the Green Deal.
- Understand how to reap the rewards of better energy efficiency.
