The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is to stage an event in Lincoln next month to inform businesses about the advantages of energy management.


The Lincolnshire Environmental Fair on 5th September is a one-day event for businesses under pressure to reduce energy use and costs and is being staged in association with the Environment Agency.


The event, which has run successfully for five years at the university, will also address the Climate Change Levy.


“The change in legislation has placed an increased burden on all businesses,” commented university environmental adviser Neil Cartwright. “The event will support and advise business on how best to cope with these changes through a series of talks about subjects including refurbishment for energy efficiency to grant and funding support.”


Professionals such as environmental managers, engineers, architects and finance directors are invited to attend the event which will include key energy speakers and workshop sessions looking at various grants, technology and management systems to reduce costs and emissions.


Speakers will include Professor Tony Marmot, Midlands Renewable Energy Technology Transfer (MRETT), Mike Buckley from the Building Research Establishment, Keith Baker of the Environmental Technology Centre at the University of Nottingham and Tim Bissett Executive Director of Groundwork Trust Lincolnshire.


The event will be followed by a business briefing from the university’s top academics on European policy.  The briefing will include information on European Policy development and the impact of monetary union on UK business.


Cost per delegate is £25+VAT. To reserve a place please contact Tricia Marshall on 01522 886911. Exhibitors’ stand space is available at a cost of £200 including VAT.
