Furthermore, this year at EMEX, you will also gain greater insights into all major energy saving initiatives across all sectors.
EMEX will reveal how major energy users in the public sector such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew or the Department of Energy & Climate Change have successfully deployed the Mayor of London's award-winning scheme RE:FIT which provides a commercial model for public bodies wishing to achieve substantial financial cost savings, improve the energy performance of their buildings and reduce their CO2 footprint.
There will be a panel session with representatives from Honeywell, and Peterborough Council, on how to successfully deploy EnPC contracts utilising the OJEU compliant Framework procured by Peterborough City council.
Across the two days, EMEX will provide visitors with a series of case studies where leading practitioners will share their knowledge and expertise across a broad range of topics and industries such as behavioural change with the Environmental Manager at Barts Health NHS Trust and the Risk Management & Sustainability Advisor at The Ambassador Theatre Group; Staff training with the Energy Manager at Network Rail, the innovative use of natural resources with the Group Environmental & Sustainability Engineer at Wabtec Group; and reducing heating costs with the Head of the Environment Services at Lincolnshire County Council.

By the time EMEX opens its' doors in November, organisations will have only 3 weeks to ascertain whether they are affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and until end of January to carry out an assessment.
