RENEWABLES FOR BUSINESS

13.45 – 14.15 

Renewables are now mainstream – they are the future, offering cheaper and more secure alternatives to traditional fossil fuel sources of energy. Yet many businesses are not taking advantage of the opportunities they offer to cut overheads, improve the bottom line, help the environment and enhance their public image.

Part of the problem is poor media coverage leading to myths such as “there is no subsidy for solar so there’s no point now” and “heat pumps only work with underfloor heating”.

This talk will dispel some of these myths and explain why every business should be looking at renewables and tapping into the great potential they hold.
