Event description

Description

This CPD course will explore the UK’s Clean Growth Strategy, what that means at a local level in terms of industry, commercial occupiers and domestic energy consumers. The Course will examine current energy policy in terms of power, heat and mobility – and the interventions being undertaken by Government to stimulate change in this area. The course will then examine how areas can reduce their carbon footprint – and use case studies to emphasise the point. Having considered carbon reduction, the course will ten examine the ways in which such a shift can improve the local economy in terms of business growth, new inward investment and skills. We will also introduce some financial models that show how the approach is achievable and not technology dependent. Finally we will consider ‘whole economy’ smart systems and where the future may be leading us.

The course is run in a participative manner and is aimed at creating a practical experience with applicability to all economic development practitioners both from the course learning, examples of good and poor practice and the interaction with other delegates.

We need a minimum of 10 delegates to run this course. If minimum numbers are not met, this course will not run and you will receive a full refund.
