About this event

The Bacchus Hotel in Sutton-on-Sea aims to be the first UK net-zero hotel, exporting more energy to the Grid than it imports. After becoming increasingly concerned by climate change and how it might affect his local community, owner David Smith wanted to ensure his business was ahead of the curve when it came to going green.

Over the last three years, he has invested in ground-source heat pumps, solar panels and battery storage that are expected to reduce his gas and electricity consumption by a huge 65% and 60% respectively. This has not only reduced the environmental impact of his hotel, but has also helped save money and future-proof his business.

David aspires to become a centre of excellence for renewables by educating and engaging with local businesses about the digitalisation of the electricity network. Join Team Lincolnshire, Business Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Council on the 7th July at the Bacchus Hotel for the Getting your Business to Net Zero event. Hear about David’s experience firsthand, as well as having the opportunity to have a guided tour around the hotel.

There will also be a networking lunch as well as talks and exhibition stands from local experts and suppliers who can advise you on how to make your premises more energy efficient, reduce your energy costs and help you move your business towards becoming net carbon zero.
