Helping you make sense of the energy and water sectors


Net zero business forum

Helping businesses achieve their net zero energy goals

The UK government is about to transform the country by setting out its plans to deliver a net zero emissions economy by 2050. Energy will be at the forefront of this transformation as we build on renewables roll out. Many businesses have bigger ambitions to go further and faster. But how? And how will the new policy framework drive the decisions they face? After a successful trial in summer 2020, Cornwall Insight's Net Zero Business Forum is already starting to help larger businesses address these critical questions.

Join the Net Zero Business Forum

The Net Zero Business Forum provides insight and analysis for business and public sector organisations looking to decarbonise their power, heat and transport needs. This online bi-monthly forum keeps members up to date with the latest policy and regulatory changes and outlines the implications for their roles and organisations. It is led by Cornwall Insight experts.

Baseline coverage is electricity, carbon emissions, gas and heat regulation and policy changes, regulatory rule changes and consultations, EV transition and infrastructure developments. Every forum will also have a focus issue, where Cornwall Insight experts discuss particular themes in more depth.

The forum is supported by experts from Cornwall Insight and is supported by its own dedicated monthly Energy Net Zero report.
