The mission is clear: we must accelerate the shift to zero-carbon energy systems in order to slash emissions and mitigate global warming. But this mission IS possible: renewable energy costs are tumbling and new approaches to energy management such as battery storage and demand response are offering new ways for organisations to operate more sustainably.

Combining real-experience case studies with expert advice, this edie webinar provide the insight and inspiration you need to take your energy management strategy onto the next level.

How can businesses tap into the benefits of demand response? What are the key considerations when considering energy storage solutions? And how should you choose between a plethora of onsite energy technologies to reduce emissions?

This one-hour webinar will seek to answer all of these key questions and more, empowering participants to deliver the smart grid of the future, today.

Key discussion points:

  • Demand response: How can businesses can save money while developing clean, reliable demand response networks? Who is already doing this effectively, and what results has it driven?
  • Energy storage: What role can energy storage play, and what barriers to deployment must be addressed? Who have been the early movers on energy storage, and what results have they seen?
  • Onsite solutions: What are the best technology options and how do you choose the right one? How do you weight up costs v return on investment?
