In the Summer Budget the climate change levy (CCL) exemption for “green” power was withdrawn and in the autumn HM Treasury will lead a wider review of the UK carbon tax regime. Proposed changes are likely to affect the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), the Climate Change Levy (CCL), ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme) and Mandatory Carbon Accounting. This will have obvious implications for Climate Change Agreements (CCAs).
techUK will be providing an update on policy issues. There will also be presentations from WEMS International who will be sharing some of their customer success stories from over 20 years in delivering building energy management solutions to some of the largest enterprises in the UK.
New applications for Satellite technology are delivering benefits to a growing number of sectors – we’ll be learning from Geospatial analysis experts if satellite data can help drive building energy efficiency. Also, EkkoSense will be presenting how innovative thermal technologies and methodologies are delivering energy and operational benefits across large estates - including Telco, Power Generators and Data Centres.
Many organisations, for example those grown through acquisition, have a number of different BMS (Building Management Systems) across their estates which can cause a number of issues – learn how IBAL are solving this problem by consolidating to a single platform.
Peter Hannaford from Data Centre People will be providing a heads-up on whether skill sets are keeping up with technology.
Finally, DataRacks are launching their Micro Data Centre this month – a versatile solution you might even be seeing in your offices soon!
