Advice will also be on hand for businesses looking at how they can tap into opportunities that will open up through the Green Deal and the already-established ECO (energy company obligation) scheme, which provides funding to householders for a range of insulation and heating measures.
New Department of Energy and Climate Change figures show take up of the government’s Green Deal scheme is creating opportunities in the building sector.
It comes as an additional £244m was allocated to The Green Deal Finance Company to provide the finance for energy efficiency measures.
In the South West, SMEs can learn more about the Green Deal via an £8m scheme which Regen is delivering in partnership with the Energy Saving Trust.
The event will welcome guest speakers including Rachel Solomon Williams, head of strategy at DECC’s Office for Renewable Energy Deployment, Mark Bayley, chief executive of The Green Deal Finance Company and Ian Burrow, head of sectors, agriculture and renewable energy at The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
Regen SW chief executive Merlin Hyman said: “Our aim is that it is one day and one place where you can to talk to the planners and policy makers.
“There will be a lot of opportunities for all sorts of businesses.”
