What you need to plan your energy productivity projects, make your case and get them over the line

In response to this year's challenges, your limited time and the need for energy productivity action to decarbonise and grow businesses, we transformed our popular Energy Innovation X-change event into a concise online event.

The Energy Innovation X-press 2020 consisted of four mornings of 2 x 60-minute informative sessions featuring industry experts to help you plan and accelerate your energy productivity efforts for 2021 and beyond.

From implementing quick wins, to making your business case and sourcing funding, this event was created in response to the most common challenges facing sustainability and energy managers who are seeking to improve energy productivity and decarbonise operations.
