Many businesses have an enormous opportunity to both pollute less and save money by making quite straightforward bread-and-butter changes. Dynamic leaders in the public and private sectors are showing others the way, while an increased profile for environmental causes has provided some impetus.
There is considerable potential to make large energy cost and carbon emission savings through the installation of energy efficiency measures. The energy efficiency technologies that deliver these savings are readily available, tried and tested, and often repay their initial capital cost within just a few years. Such improvements can provide significant long-term cash savings for organisations and reduced exposure to future changes in energy costs.
EMEX, The Energy Management Exhibition, will take place on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd November at ExCeL in London.
With more than 130 exhibitors, 80 seminars across 5 topical theatres, and over 100 speakers, EMEX is the must-attend event for everyone wanting to better inform their strategies and plans by enhancing their knowledge and best practice, gathering first-hand learning from leading practitioners and benchmarking solutions.
