Speakers Confirmed:

Low Carbon England 2015: Meeting the Emissions Reduction Targets is a unique conference that will address England's current place in meeting the EU emissions reduction targets. The main focus of the conference is to discuss and identify how public & private sector organisations working together in a joined up collaborative fashion can act as a catalyst to help both towns and cities to continue to lead the way in the transition to developing a Sustainable Low Carbon Economy.

There is a growing recognition among city leaders in the developed economies that smarter approaches are needed to address the challenges which face society, to improve the efficiency of public service delivery, the sustainability of the urban environment, and the quality of life in our cities. To make a city “smart” consists of adopting a family of technologies that can speed up the flow of things around the city and reduce the physical frustrations of urban life. A free flow of traffic, smarter energy and less waste can all be adopted which will enable public services to target and focus on areas where they are most needed. It is about combining the best of the new generations technologies that can use data, analyse and target whilst involving citizens closely so that they too can shape how a city should work. In the past smart cities failed due to focusing on hardware rather than people, it is imperative to focus on both hardware and people to create a “smart city”.

The Low Carbon England conference will pull together evidence based analysis projects from across Europe and the U.K that will allow public and private sector institutes to learn and share ideas from those leading from the front line. The conference will highlight the up and coming opportunities and projects available for public and private partnerships to be formed while transferring knowledge to make sure we are making the best use of data, energy, assets, buildings, estates and facilities on both a town and city by city basis.

"Public Private Partnerships are VITAL in overcoming challenges and discovering new opportunities"

Low Carbon England 2015: “Meeting the Emissions Reduction Targets " will be an excellent platform for those looking at business development opportunities across towns and cities on a regional and national scale to become part of this inspiring journey.
