Sustainable energy and circular economies

18 Oct 2023
  • How do we create sustainable energy communities that are EV ready? 

  • How do we create net-zero buildings and protect against fuel poverty? 

  • How do we accelerate and upscale retrofit and decarbonisation of existing buildings? 

  • How do we develop comprehensive rather than patchwork solutions for reducing carbon emissions?  

  • How do we move away from the linear economy and embrace circularity to reduce waste, carbon emissions and our impact on the natural world?
