A panel discussion featuring Alan Whitehead MP, New Statesman Energy Editor Philippa Nuttall Jones and others.

About this Event

The covid-19 crisis has proven that we are capable of adapting and working in innovative ways. As the world starts to rebuild and grow after lockdown, a green economy should be at the centre of our post-covid recovery. Focusing on how we use energy is one way to do this : If every household in the UK took action on energy efficiency, we could achieve 11% of the UK’s 2050 carbon target.

How do we ensure that energy efficiency and smart energy systems are at the centre of our green recovery? How can we reach net zero carbon emissions in ways that are quicker, easier and cheaper? How can we use innovation in e-vehicles and homes to further our green recovery? How can we ensure that consumers are taken on the journey to net-zero with us?

Join the New Statesman for an online panel discussion and live Q&A, sponsored by Smart Energy GB, with Alan Whitehead MP and others, exploring the role that smart energy systems and smart meters play in reducing our carbon footprint and working towards net zero in a post-covid world.

Register to tune in to this online event at 10am on Wednesday 8th July, and receive joining information closer to the date. Spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis.
