Future of London, supported by EDF Energy, are hosting a suite of events addressing the specific challenges boroughs face in implementing the Green Deal and ECO in London. The overarching question driving the events is: How can Boroughs drive demand for the Green Deal?
The events will focus on three distinct themes:
Borough Challenges – Tuesday 7 February
• Creating a business case for the Green Deal – quantifying the economic, environmental and social benefits
• Enabling capacity within boroughs – effective collaboration between teams
• Engaging with other Green Deal/ECO stakeholders, such as investors, providers, stockholders across the Borough, and other Boroughs.
Community Challenges – Thursday 1 March
• Scope for community delivery of the Green Deal.
• Fostering responsible energy use among households
• Stimulating demand from low-income households
Financial Challenges – Tuesday 20 March
• Turning the Green Deal into a transparent offer – sources of financing to maximise uptake
• Integrating the Green Deal with ECO.
• Quantifying the hidden costs of financing the Green Deal
All will feature presentations from sector specialists, representatives of London Boroughs and legal and financial experts. Attendees will have the opportunity to input into Future of London’s current research programme, which will result in the production of a practical toolkit for those engaged in the sector to implement Green Deal/ECO across London in the years ahead.
If you are interested in attending, please Jo for further information at Joanna@futureoflondon.org.uk. While we would encourage people to attend all three events, you are welcome to sign up for one or two.
