The UK government published its long-awaited strategy for increasing the country's energy independence in April 2022. There's an ambition to boost renewable energy sources by doubling UK hydrogen production by 2030 and increasing the UK's current solar capacity fivefold by 2035. Offshore wind is also a significant part of the strategy with a new target to generate 50GW of energy by 2030.
Back in April 2021, the government announced it will set the world’s most ambitious climate change target into law to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels. In October 2021 a landmark Net-zero Strategy was published which sets out a comprehensive economy-wide plan for how British businesses and consumers will be supported in making the transition to clean energy and green technology. This alongside the far-reaching implications for everyone following decisions made at COP27, makes this an extremely timely event.
Accelerating the path to sustainability by lowering carbon emissions to net-zero is no longer a lofty ambition; it is now a requirement if we are to avoid the substantial harms that would otherwise befall our communities.
This event will look at how far the public sector has come in terms of advancing the energy and sustainability agenda. Hear from key policymakers and gain the most up-to-date information on government policy and implementation goals.
Taking place on the 28th February at the Kia Oval, London, The National Energy and Sustainability Show will provide practical case study examples from public sector organisations demonstrating how to meet green targets and improve efficiency in key areas such as accelerating the transition to zero-emission vehicles, promoting green public transportation, greener buildings, environmental protection, and working toward net-zero emissions by 2050.
As the UK strives to achieve net-zero energy, it has never been more critical for the public sector to play a role in the green revolution. Innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies can play a key role in assisting the public sector not only in meeting its carbon reduction and environmental impact goals but also in decreasing costs.
Taking to the stage for the panel discussion "Building Sustainable Futures: Reaching Net-Zero In The Built Environment", Advanced Infrastructure's Head of Data, DR Noah Miller will be joined alongside other panelists including: Ellie Jenkins: Construction Innovation Hub; Emma Osmundsen: Sixty Bricks, Yvette Ashby: PCIAW.
The panel discussion will focus on:
